Suburban Boston Home

The owners of this suburban Boston home have four active, young sons. They wanted a clutter-free yet inviting look and furnishings in durable, easy-to-care-for finishes. The living room is an elegant, grown-up space for entertaining while a large space at the top of the staircase, which was rarely used, became an area for the boys to study and watch TV. The kitchen's eating area features a table and chairs with an industrial feel. Floral chair covers, which can be easily removed and washed, soften the space. The dining room, with a lavender wallpaper in a geometric print, was designed to be both family-friendly and formal.
