Well Done in Wicker Park

>> Tuesday, December 29, 2009

The team over at Desire to Inspire brought Buckingham Interiors + Design to my attention this morning. I was super impressed with their work and wanted to share this Wicker Park Renovation project. Boston is a town that loves their historic architecture and I think this is a great example of how you can stealthy integrate modern design into a classic structure.


 
 
 
 
 
 
See the transition of the stair railing from traditional to modern? And notice how much more modern the spaces are on the upper floors.

I really like the transition of the railing - it's so subtle and flows beautifully! In the second photo I like how three rooms are interconnected by the perfectly lined up doorways. Such an elegant house.

While I love, like LOVE the bones of this house, I'm not so sure about the decor- I'm more of a Boston traditional girl I guess :)

It is very well done though, even if it is not my taste- I can appreciate the amazing work here.

Excuse me a moment while I swoon over the gorgeous media room. I sound like a dude. Ah ha ha

I can't imagine having that much room in my bathroom. I know, not much input, but really. It's huge. And the windows surrounding the tub? yes please

This is pretty close to one of my fav properties you've posted. I think the hilights for me are the stairs and the mixing of old charm with new style. The colors are also a great mix of dark and light. Plus I am such a sucker for fat crown molding and base boards!!!
