Calm and Serene Apartment in Boston

Calm and Serene Apartment in Boston



When the summer starts to feel like it is coming to an end, and everything shifts to a different season, naturally, not only the surroundings and nature changes, but I guess even your mindset switches at least a bit. I don’t know about all you, guys, but when I feel that the fall is coming and that’s it for this summer, it’s like everything changes – my mood, my approach to work, even my eating habits. I never understood why this happens (and this happens every fall) and I still don’t, but I just try to embrace it in it’s fullness and accept it as a natural state of a summertime end. Even my eyes ask for some cozy, serene and calm environments, therefore today that’s exactly what you’ll see on our page. This wonderful 19th-Century brownstone is gloriously reinvented by Richard Hallberg and was posted in Veranda Magazine – definitely a feast for your eyes.

These amazing circular stairs do make a statement and also diffuse in this interior. To get these two things into one, is one hard work. Empty space under the stairs is used up for  displaying creatively grown plants and a sphere sculpture by Robert Kuo. The flooring is by Exquisite Surfaces.

The master bath is calm and serene, dressed in light cream and white, mustard yellow and beige tones. The tub is by MTI Baths and the sink fittings are by Gessi, sconces by Jasper. Seriously, I need to discuss the plumbing – have you ever seen other exposed plumbing that looks this elegant? Well done, really well done.
