Modern Urban Revival

When our clients acquired this classic Beacon Hill condominium overlooking Boston Common, they sought collaboration with Feinmann Design|Build to renovate the entire space. The lack of connection between the kitchen, located in the back of the home, and the living and dining rooms was the focus of the redesign. Also on the wish list was a new bedroom and a second family bathroom to be located in the area of the existing kitchen. The resulting plan for this extensive renovation was an updated floor plan to match our clients’ modern lifestyle, while retaining much of the homes original detail.

Connecting the most frequented rooms in the house required relocating the kitchen to the front of the condo to be closer to the living and dining rooms. A wall anchored by elegant columns defines the kitchen and adds sophistication to the adjoining dining room. Natural light shines through skylights that were exposed when the kitchen ceiling was opened and then styled to reflect the classic woodworking details found in the rest of the home. White marble counters grace the custom built island, perfect for a casual meal or for doing homework.

While reconfiguring the master bathroom and renovating the second bedroom proved to be a major project, our skilled team also relocated the new bedroom and family bathroom to the area where the kitchen formally was. Each of the three renovated bathrooms truly achieved a style of their own – in the Master Bath, a soaking tub and shower are enclosed, as is traditional in Japan, in floor to ceiling glass. To complete our clients wish list, we designed and built a classic Japanese Tatami room to double as both a guest bedroom and meditation space – a unique feature within a classically designed home.

Hi laurelhollow - Whoever guessed Benjamin Moore van Deusen Blue is correct! HC-156. Thanks and good luck!

Beautiful paint color; what is the color brand/name? - I have found it so difficult to find a dark navy tone that still shows through as true blue, rather than black. Could you tell me what paint brand/name this is? Also, what is the finish? It seems flat and I am wondering if that helps with a dark blue tone like this - particularly where the light will be artificial and recessed - i.e. does a flatter tone help avoid a "sheen" that will make the blue appear black? Thanks!

I believe the hand towel bar is from the Kohler Bancroft series, same as the faucet.

Hi & Thanks for your question. The color is Van Deusen Blue HC-156 by Benjamin Moore. One thing to take into consideration is that this was photographed professionally with extra lighting so the color may appear different in the image than when you use it at home. Hope this helps!

Hi and thanks for your question. The client purchased the mirror herself so we don't know exactly where it is from but we have seen similar ones on Wisteria.com or search for oval Venetian glass mirrors. Best of luck!

Unfortunately, we cannot help on that question. The customer purchased the mirror long ago and asked us to include it in the design.

Search Venetian Glass etched mirror and you will find this one and many others. Try Ebay - a bit cheaper.

Hello maripily07 and thank you for your question. The homeowner purchased the towel rack and mirror. We don't know where the mirror was purchased but we have seen similar ones on several websites that sell Venetian glass mirrors. Good luck.

Hi natmiavito and thank you for your question. The homeowner purchased the mirror herself and we do not know where it came from. We have seen similar mirrors on a variety of websites including Wisteria.com. However, another Houzz member has suggested Ethan Allen venetian mirrors.

Hi Natashahoff3 and thanks for your question. We sometimes work with clients on their furnishings but mostly we let the interior designers handle those items. We're more concerned with the design work, structure, building and finish work and product selection for fixtures (like the sink, toilet and tile). Good luck finding a trundle bed.

Hi Kristen 5988. Not sure this question was meant for us...our suggestion is to build a frame around that has hidden storage in the back or drawers in the front...are you local? If you're local, go to our website and send us an email and we'll see what we can do to help! Thanks.

Hi and thanks for your interest. The floor is a strie tile, 12 x 24, called Sienna Silver Travertine manufactured by Walker Zanger purchased locally through Tile Showcase. The tile behind the sink is from a collection called Porcellana Bianco but the tiles now come in a different size (larger 8x24). Hope that answers your question!

Hi and thanks for your question. The homeowner purchased the towel rack and mirror. We recall that the towel rack came from Restoration Hardware but we've seen several similar "double" racks online. Thanks for your interest!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jennifer Ott Design added this to Bathed in Color: When to Use Blue in the Bath
If you are drawn to bolder or darker blue hues but are leery about using them in your main bathroom, consider using them in a half bathroom or guest bathroom instead. These spaces tend to be used less frequently and for limited amounts of time, so they're the perfect spaces in which to go bold with color. The dark inky blue on the walls in this elegant bathroom adds such drama.More bold colors for a small bathroom
Christine Ciarmello added this to Here's Looking at You: A Mirror Personality Quiz
Best suited for: Romantics, world travelers and vintage lovers.Who you are: You love film noir and are almost obsessively devoted to Sunset Boulevard and Dashiell Hammett novels. You love antiquing and are attracted to shiny, glitzy objects. Getting dressed up and socializing is a perfect evening for you. Your favorite destinations are: Palm Springs, Hollywood, New York City, the Cote d'Azur and Venice. You also have been itching to go on Cunard's Queen Mary or the Orient-Express. At the bar you usually order: A gimlet, a Negroni or a Venetian spritz. Your astrological sign: Cancer, Leo, Scorpio or Sagittarius.
