Back Bay townhouse contemporary-family-room
 

Back Bay townhouse

This 1870’s brick townhouse was purchased by dealers of contemporary art, with the intention of preserving the remaining historical qualities while creating a comfortable and modern home for their family. Each of the five floors has a distinct character and program, unified by a continuously evolving stair system. Custom built-ins lend character and utility to the spaces, including cabinets, bookshelves, desks, beds, benches and a banquette. Lighting, furnishings, fabrics and colors were designed collaboratively with the home owners to compliment their art collection.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Learn to pick a good movie. If you already have a lineup of films you want to see, great! If not, or if you’ve been disappointed with your latest picks, it’s time to do some research. There are a bunch of great online resources for film reviews — for starters, try The New York Times’ DVD reviews, IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic, a site that compares reviews by top critics. Or, if you have a friend with similar tastes in films, asking for personal recommendations can be a good way to go. Consider following a theme — or even start a film club. Pretend you’re in film school and watch a batch of movies in the same category. Create a lineup of French or Italian films, for instance, or work your way through the entire Hitchcock catalog. If you have a group of friends you’d love to connect with more often, a film club can be a low-key way to keep up. It’s less work than a book club, and the potential for food and cocktail pairings with movies can keep the events lively. Just remember to take turns picking!Try these movies featuring Oscar-worthy homes

What kind of storage should I add to my family room? Think about what kinds of things you usually keep in your space, and then add storage that specifically accommodates those items. If you have young kids, toys might be an issue, so built-in cabinets or toy boxes and chests would be worthwhile investments. For high-tech families, add shelves for movies and video games and cabinets to hide small electronics like video game consoles and DVD players. Better yet, invest in a large entertainment center or media console. To encourage good work habits, install a built-in desk, work table or counter for homework time. How do I decorate my family room? When decorating your space, don't be afraid of bright colors, but don't go overboard either. Stick with neutral sofas, armchairs and ottomans and go bold with accessories — that way, you can easily swap out the small things when a new color scheme is in order. Picture frames, rugs, throw pillows and curtains are all great for adding color, while mirrors, table lamps and ceiling lights can help light flow throughout the space. Hang colorful mediterranean artwork on the walls, and even add an accent wall by choosing a trendy new paint color.
