Having recently moved into a 55+ community in Stow, MA, our clients were looking to update their traditional style with a fresher, more transitional vibe that would also help them age in place. The couple wanted a coastal feel, without the cliché of a “beach house”, therefore, Barbara created a color scheme that was light and serene…soft blues and greens, with cream and tans as the neutral hues and pops of deeper colors scattered throughout.
In the living room, a white custom media furniture piece was designed by Barbara to be placed as a sideboard under the screen TV. Gold accent pulls give it a bit of bling and connect with the metal finishes (brass and oil rubbed bronze) used throughout the spaces.
Adding a bit of fun to the husband’s office, Barbara recommended a deeper shade of the blue/green color for the walls as well as the custom bookcase cabinet. This color is picked up in the exquisite oriental wool rug and two map reproduction art prints. The deep brown leather sofa along with both rod iron and brass accents (side table, lamps, bookshelf hardware) give the room a masculine vibe without being too stark or stuffy.
