The prior owners of this Beacon Hill condo outfitted this room with a Murphy bed. Ana Donohue’s clients, however, wanted to use it as their bedroom. Rather than relegating the whole contraption to the trash, Donohue used the Murphy bed’s platform as a base for a queen-size bed and transformed the niche into a headboard with upholstery. “I wanted to enlarge the cavity, but there’s a brick wall behind it so we left it,” the designer says. “We

Initially, Soni Konduru wasn’t certain that she wanted to set aside an entire room in her Chestnut Hill home for a zen zone, but, when the pandemic hit, she was glad she did. Not only does everyone in the family use it for prayer or meditation, it’s become a quiet space where her 20-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter hang out and read. “People use it around their own schedules for ritual time, and it’s also become a hideaway,” the design principal of Daastann says. During Hindu celebrations such as Diwali, the five-day festival of lights that begins November

It was certainly the first time Lisa Buyuk had heard the request. “She said she wanted to embrace her ‘inner Gwen Stefani,’” the Boston-based designer says of her client, who works in finance and lives in the South End. “She told me, ‘I have the brain of a nerd, but the heart and style of a wannabe glam punk.’” Buyuk’s response was to create a dynamic space filled with quirky, irreverent things. Fuchsia and gold accents reflect the owner’s edgy sensibility and optimistic attitude. “She is consistently

How to plan and decorate your living room

A good starting point is to think about how many people you need to fit in your living room on a regular basis. This will help you to choose the right living room furniture.

What should I put in my living room?

A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit.

    21 Contemporary Exterior Design Inspiration

    We mostly talk about the interiors when we talk about house design and the lifestyle of the people living in the house.
