FRENCH COUNTRY GLAM

This modern bohemian goddess lived in a home that was filled with the family she loved, furniture she adored and art she coveted, yet inside the space lacked cohesion. M&H rose to the challenge of giving existing French country some seriously chic rock star glam.

A COUPLE OF ARTISTS

Luckily B’s husband is a killer photographer with an amazing talent. M&H immediately fell in love with his dreamy Boston cityscape, a place near and dear to the couple’s heart. The perfect balance of classic and urban, the image acted as stepping-stone that provided a touch of modern to a traditional colonial home.

EXISTING ART & FURNITURE

It was important for B that their existing furniture and art were incorporated into the newly elevated space. Bold color moves, modern sconces and thoughtfully placed artwork was instrumental in creating an updated cohesive space.

MAKING IT UNIQUE

M&H wanted to highlight B’s life of art and culture, so they sourced out Brooklyn artist Jill Malek’s stunning handmade wallpaper and used it to create a unique feature wall above the fireplace. Custom bench seating was added to give the space definition, upholstered in glam bronze vinyl that is fully wipeable—a much needed attribute for any family.

ELEVATED HOME

Small moves like adding bold new modern handles to an existing built-in and showing off art made by her family, highlighted familiar special elements and this elevated space. Ultimately creating a space that celebrated B’s style and felt instantly like home.
