“My perfectionist architect friend says he wants to live in our renovated home”—Brookline client

New great room now flooded with light due to the opening up of the atrium space; we also replaced an 80st style fireplace with a locally-sourced brick one and a salvaged pine mantle, to draw out further the original character of the home.
The client, proud of her Mexican heritage, wanted to include Mexican tiles somewhere in the historical home. We created an unusual, vibrant juxtaposition with British damask-style wallpaper by Farrow and Ball in the gut renovated bathroom, where we also integrate an old barn door as a feature.
we opened up the wall to adjacent den to create more sightlines and bring in light. Farrow and Ball sap green new french doors.

Dutch Baroque details like this peekaboo window that allows more Northern exposure and even daylighting over a writing nook in the kitchen–historical Farrow and Ball colors of mouse back, pale powder and blackened at the cabinetry

We sanded, stained and preserved old barn doors dating back to the original late 19th century structure for horses.
the original structure was a horse shed built in 1895 and soon became a small home, in the famed Fisher Hill neighborhood of Brookline, Mass., with grounds by Olmsted
The peekaboo window and other portals add a touch of Dutch baroque as seen in paintings by De Hooch and Vermeer
