An 1890s colonial in the heart of the Historic District was the site of a multi-year project in which Liz and her team worked closely with the architect, the builder, and the client to reimagine this home. One of the main objectives was to design a home where many of the decorative elements that were either salvaged, inherited, or collected over the past 100+ years of this home’s life could live in a vital, youthful way. Period pieces such as the vintage Barovier Murano glass sconces, a massive pair of Venini-style snowflake chandeliers, Louis XVI dining chairs and a regency sofa, were chosen to achieve relevance. Fabrics and wallcoverings were specified by vendors that supported classic techniques and patterns. The end result is a well-appointed and timeless interior with modern touches and clever usages of color.
