When Sleeping Dog Properties, Inc. worked with Elms Interior Design to reimagine this luxury condo at Boston’s Millennium Tower, a dynamic navy blue figured in greatly to the design mix. In this expansive, sky-high space, with the city at its feet, this accent color was a natural choice, complementing the tones of the panoramic views found outside a perimeter of floor-to-ceiling windows.   Blue...

We love the look of sliding barn doors in interiors, and they’ve certainly come a long way since their agrarian roots. While they’ve been around for years, somehow they still feel like a novelty when brought indoors. These days, there are applications for every taste, from reclaimed and rustic to clean-lined and contemporary. Plus, they’re as functional as they are attractive, and serve to...

Exposed beams bring a rustic flair into the home, warming up crisp interiors and highlighting the architecture of a space. Whether unexpected or right on point, beams bring an inviting, down-to-earth bearing to ceiling height and inspire a mountainside cabin state of mind. We just love these strong and supportive types, and think you’ll agree. Architectural Design, Inc. cultivated a "tree-house...

Adams + Beasley Associates (ABA) got creative when reimagining the kitchen of an artist’s loft, which, formerly, had been dark and ill designed. They sent the compact footprint soaring by opening up the space, adding flexibility and giving it a spirit to match the client’s artistic sensibilities. ABA’s solution was to integrate a low, heavy soffit into the wall plane by using plaster “ribbons”...

“Everyone likes modern cars and modern fashion, why not modern architecture?” muses Adolfo Perez, principal of Adolfo Perez Architect, who is known throughout New England for his contemporary constructs. “To say you don’t like modern architecture just doesn’t make sense to me as an aesthetic choice.” Many of the style’s hallmarks—an inherent relationship to site, a mindfulness for materials, a...

Clean lines. Pleasing geometry. A close connection to nature. The best modern homes have a refreshing, stripped-down bearing that compels the residents to simply be. There is no fuss, just form, simply the essence of a design—which is a credit to both the architect and builder. We take a look at five inspired properties that master that modern sensibility—inside and out. North Pamet Ridge House...

There’s no denying that it’s bittersweet to be back in the routine of work and life and schedules. But, as sad as it is to say good-bye to the days of rosé, sunshine and sandy feet for some time, fall is a great time to harness that back-to-school energy and drive that is ingrained in us, and dig in to a great home project.   So long as you are back to the grind, we’ll give you one more thing to...

The goal? A modern farmhouse kitchen, and then some. Today, the crane came out and the project has entered the demo stage. “It’s all happening,” says Melanie, and there’s no going...

Principal Doug Hanna of S+H Construction knew immediately that the transformation his firm and Architect Will Ruhl were planning for a 3,500-square-foot contemporary home in Cambridge would not be your everyday makeover. The property of interest was formerly an abandoned municipal garage that was converted into a residential living space in the 1950s by Paul Rudolph, one of the Modernist era’s...
