A Collector's Sanctuary

Boston Entrance

Diverse Art Collection Dictates Design

In this project, the walls were painted a soft grey to serve as a neutral backdrop to highlight the owners’ diverse art collection, including antique architectural engravings, Old Master prints and drawings, as well as contemporary works. An 18th century Italian console is juxtaposed with modern pieces such as a Jean-Michel Frank glass cocktail table and French Deco side tables. Framed pictures take on a life of their own in handmade burnished gold frames. Books become art objects when wrapped in crisp Arches paper. Luxurious fabrics are paired with a casual Dhurri rug in the living room to give a sense of casual elegance.
