Describe the client and the style of her home? Our client’s home, which is located on Boston’s fan pier, had a contemporary and elegant style. Newly renovated, her home featured a soulful art collection, custom furniture, and a vibrant décor that perfectly matched her personality.

How did you collaborate to create the best possible outcome? OThis was our third project with this client and there was a level of comfort that allowed for a really productive design process. She wanted an elevated home office, and she entrusted us with a lot of creative freedom throughout the design process. Conceptually, the idea of installing Virtuoso on a classic system seemed pretty cool and unique, so we started there and ran with it. We had one showroom visit with the client to finalize finishes. 

This project was part of a new chapter in our client’s life, one  that has been years in the making.
