Upton Park

Upton Park

Boston, MA

Nestled in the South End of Boston, this brownstone had all the modern amenities that the homeowner was looking for, but lacked the storage and décor that would match our client’s taste and lifestyle. The homeowner wanted to keep the style of the apartment contemporary, but also wanted to weave in their art collection and family heirlooms for a more transitional blend.

With an open plan on the first floor, LDa created areas for three defined spaces: kitchen, living and dining. Navy blue, rust, cream and white colored hues tie together each space making them feel unified in concept but separate in functionality. To add storage and architectural detail, we designed a modern-styled media wall with flat cabinetry which doubles as a bookshelf and coat closet, tucked snugly under the staircase. A new stair railing features a wood railing which speaks the mix of modern and traditional nature of the house. In the kitchen, traditional paneled cabinetry is complemented by modern appliances, lighting and hardware. Upstairs, the rooms are quieter and cozier, with a calm monochromatic palette, but still featuring unique touches such as embroidered wallpaper in the master bedroom, and custom built-ins. After infusing the classic architecture with the more stylish décor, the result is a sleek and sophisticated space that exudes warmth and light.
