“Home” is the most treasured place we inhabit in our lifetime. It is where we spend time with family and friends and where we include our most prized possessions. It is designed to suit uniquely individual preferences and lifestyle and has increasingly become a multipurpose, highly technological enjoyment center.

Cambridge Home

The spirit of the Arts and Crafts movement was embraced in the complete remodeling of this three story house on a quiet street abutting Harvard’s campus.

The clients worked in collaboration with the design

and construction teams on every detail - the fine workmanship of local artisans, cabinet and tile makers and woodworkers were whimsically paired with reproductions by period manufacturers.

“Lively contrasts repeat throughout the house”, light and dark, shiny and matte, dignified and playful.”

(Regina Cole, Old-House Interiors)

Beverly Home

​Once the home of Adlai Stevenson, this oceanfront property was fully renovated inside and out to accommodate the active lifestyles and preferences of its new owners. The rooms now flow seamlessly, one to the next, on three levels with a variety of areas for living, entertaining, playing and working. The lower level rooms open to a sweeping lawn leading to the ocean with an accessible shower/sauna/bathroom, fit below the octagonal Tea Room.

Rockport Home

This charming antique Cape in the historic village has held the heart of this family for over 40 years. Preparing the house for the next generation of family visits and converting third floor attic space into a private master suite were the impetus for this whole-house renovation. Every detail of design and construction was specified by the owner to duplicate original methods and materials as true as possible but also incorporate current technologies for comfort and energy conservation. The sensibility of precision and respect for tradition are the essence of each charming and intimate space in this beautiful home.

Japanese-Influenced

Scholar's Office

Within the duality of life in Japan, the elements that are most characteristically Japanese prevail in the home. This calm meditative environment emulates a respect for spontaneity and utility of form, and discretion for authentic simplicity in furnishings and finishes, color and lighting. Created within traditional Western architecture, these new spaces that pay homage to another culture’s traditional shapes, spatial relationships and finish applications in wood, metal, tatami and jade reflect the devotion and sensibility of the scholar within.

Home Away From Home

A mix of traditional style and modern comfort create the inviting mood of this morning breakfast and afternoon tea room, designed for the Inn at Castle Hill Designer Showhouse in this historic Bed & Breakfast on the grounds of the Crane Estate in Ipswich. The use of contemporary colors inspired by the outdoors and traditional furnishings, some of which were handmade in the immediate locale, revitalize this multi-use space that is the heart of the visitor area. Every table in the room is accessible by wheelchair including the intimate fireside. A movable serving cart keeps the paths of travel versatile while providing refreshments throughout the day.

Andover Home

This spacious Colonial home underwent major renovations in the multi-room master suite and the elongated living and dining rooms in an effort to maximize the use and enjoyment of these primary living spaces. Much needed storage space was increased within traditional custom cabinetry and natural stone tile work added grace and beauty to focal points throughout each room. Details in the furnishings, finishes and fixtures communicate the clients’ preference for layered patterns and understated elegance.

Rockport Cottage

​Intended as a weekend retreat from the city, this cozy shingle-style cottage was refurbished to modernize the kitchen and bath. By removing door frames between kitchen, dining room and living room, the first floor rooms were opened to the ocean view and natural light creating a new sense of togetherness and enlarged living space. A deck was added along the full length of the house facing the ocean, adding what seemed to be another room in summer months.

Outdoor Spaces

These photos have been pulled together from the separate projects included above to underscore the importance of integrating design elements that flow between interior and exterior living spaces. Each was designed to enhance the clients’ experience of being outdoors while also having access to sheltered rooms defined either with walls or decking or structural boundaries. In New England, we enlarge our homes through the use of outdoor spaces, typically in summer, that bring the outdoors in and the indoors out.

“I met Lisa nearly 30 years ago when she was just starting out and I interviewed her for a magazine article. I decided to hire her myself and we started with a bedroom. A few months later my husband and I decided to do major kitchen and living room renovations and Lisa was my first and only call. The three of us worked together beautifully from the start, and the results were fabulous. I felt like I had a new house that was a reflection of me, and I loved it. The kitchen was fully redesigned with tons of cabinets and a beautiful tile floor that I continued to love until we sold the house 20-some years later.  (The buyer said it was the kitchen that sold her). Living room furnishings were hard to choose, but I still have many of them today and they are still in style. More recently, we moved to an apartment and she came to help me get organized. With my original pieces, my new home is eclectic, warm, cozy, and comfortable, and I still get compliments. I now consider her a close friend and like to take credit for “discovering” her!”
