When Jessica Schwartz and Ryan Stanton bought associated with a three-tale new make in a city across Boston’s Charles River, it pushed the designers squarely out of their consolation zone. “The purchasers wished to deliver a worldliness into the home by way of the layering of texture, sample, and color—not New England coloration,” points out Jessica, one half of Stanton Schwartz Style Team. “We went back to the drawing board to up the saturation.”
The designers delved in early on, collaborating with Chan Mock Architects to form the rooms before transferring onto finishes, fixtures, and furnishings. “We specified everything in the peak of the gray and navy period, and just before marble was a issue,” Ryan adds.
On the ground flooring, scored concrete flooring juxtapose prosperous and lustrous finishes, and they create the moody palette. Immediately bypassing the usual oak for the kitchen cabinetry, the staff opted for rosewood, which Jessica notes is “warmer, richer, and deeper” than most clientele are eager to go. “There’s an honesty in the supplies they value,” she says.
