From the Publisher<br />

I can’t help but get a little emotional over this milestone, our <strong>20th</strong><br />

<strong>Anniversary</strong> issue. My children were 1, 5 and 7 years old when I started<br />

Boston Design Guide/<strong>BDG</strong>. That brings it all home for me. Where has<br />

the time gone? When I page through back issues of the first years, I<br />

recall every photo shoot like it was yesterday. We no longer use film<br />

for our shoots and production, we’re happily rid of dial-up Internet and<br />

while our mobile phones may be attached to our ears, at least they’re<br />

not mounted in our cars.<br />

The homes featured in my first few issues have stood the test of time.<br />

They truly are timeless in design and structure. Of course, quality never<br />

goes out of style. (See pages 18-27 timeless trends/flashback 20 years<br />

ago) And we’re grateful for that, as quality is the backbone of our<br />

publication. It is how we’ve become the “go-to” resource for New England’s home industry, trusted<br />

to showcase only “the best of the best” for a discerning audience for 20 years. It’s also the reason<br />

we spare no expense when it comes to printing and photography. It’s really quite simple; we’ve<br />

achieved success because everything we do in print and online reflects the highest standards. We are<br />

extraordinarily proud of being the coffee table book displayed prominently, that doesn’t get tossed.<br />

As I have said in many of my publisher letters, let us not take for granted (for one minute), but be<br />

reminded and grateful that these beautiful pictures we all “ooh and aah” over were made possible<br />

by homeowners who have allowed the businesses featured within these pages to photograph their<br />

private sanctuaries. It is a true testament to these business professionals who delivered on their<br />

promises and cultivated great relationships.<br />

Reaching this milestone would not be possible if not for all those who have walked beside me<br />

over the past 20 years. I want to thank each and every one of you: family, friends, past and current<br />

employees and staff, as well as our valued clients and vendors. Thank you for guiding me, pushing<br />

me or hitting me over the head. Honestly, I would not be here “cheering” 20 years without you. The<br />

friendships I have built, the support both professionally and personally given to me, the experiences I<br />

have enjoyed…well, it’s humbling to say the least. What a great run it has been. Here’s to many more<br />

years of being the first and longest-running home publication in New England.<br />

The design industry grows as our lifestyles do. It<br />

reflects our individual tastes and trends, as well as the<br />

ever-evolving digital era.<br />

I’ve grown up with the movement of the web and<br />

have seen how much our lifestyles have changed because<br />

of it. My time now is easily divided between the screen<br />

and actual life—and I know I’m not just speaking for<br />

myself on that! I’m often discovering home shopping<br />

websites and apps that deliver straight to your door. There<br />

is always something new coming out. In this digital era the<br />

luxury of convenience is everywhere, but is the quality?<br />

There’s so much available at our fingertips that content<br />

can be misleading, and the allure of getting something<br />

quick and cheap is often traded for having something<br />

custom and long lasting. Twenty years ago when <strong>BDG</strong> launched, and it was the sole<br />

home resource guide in New England, our mission was clear: to provide our readers<br />

with the best home resources. We strive every day to achieve this online by offering our<br />

followers the simplicity and sophistication that reflects the pages of this publication.<br />

Through our website, social media and e-newsletters, we give you the luxury of<br />

convenience along with the trusted quality of professionals we represent. Follow us online<br />

“Both hand drawn renderings and CAD drawings<br />

are integral tools in the design process.”<br />

-John and Laura Meyer,<br />

Meyer & Meyer, Inc.<br />

At <strong>BDG</strong>, we’re grateful to have<br />

relationships with professionals who<br />

have been with us since our inception<br />

20 years ago. Feeling nostalgic, we<br />

combed through the archives to<br />

find milestones that have changed<br />

our industry, coveted New England<br />

designs, and projects showcased<br />

in our first few editions that are<br />

still relevant today. We honor and<br />

highlight some of the best projects<br />

and professionals we’ve encountered.<br />

2000<br />

Outdoor Living<br />

Since the millennium, says Bob Marzilli, of R.P. Marzilli<br />

& Company, New Englanders have shown an<br />

increased interest in “taking the indoors outdoors.”<br />

The demand for creating backyard oases has been<br />

on the rise ever since.<br />

1997<br />

The Advent of CAD<br />

Zhu/Yin Residence<br />

The CAD (Computer Aided Design) revolution<br />

enabled designers to layout and develop work onscreen<br />

and save it for future editing, saving time on<br />

drawings and changes.<br />

<strong>20th</strong> ANNIVERSARY<br />

(Left) LDa Architecture & Interiors is “sharing in Boston’s<br />

multi-unit housing boom,” with more downtown<br />

projects than ever before. The firm attributes the growth<br />

to an “urban/suburban housing swap, where downsizing<br />

baby-boomers and millennials are headed to the city.”<br />

“It has to be one of the most exciting<br />

times to be a builder in Boston.”<br />

- Allison Iantosca,<br />

F.H. Perry Builder<br />

2010<br />

City Living<br />

Allison Iantosca of F.H.<br />

Perry Builder notes that<br />

the demographics have<br />

changed. Unlike years<br />

past, young families are<br />

more eager to immerse<br />

themselves in the city’s<br />

energy and burgeoning<br />

resources.<br />

<strong>2017</strong><br />

Technology Advances<br />

TVs have only been<br />

getting bigger and<br />

better. It’s the 4K OLED<br />

(Light Emitting Diode)<br />

TV that has everyone<br />

talking. The screen’s<br />

eye-catching images<br />

can be viewed well at<br />

any angle, unlike earlier<br />

flat-screen models.<br />

Kenneth Vona Construction has employed<br />

a host of techniques, including water<br />

management, “outsulating,” HVAC and<br />

energy consumption and a tight build<br />

envelope, to reduce the strain of carbon<br />

emissions on the environment and bring<br />

peace of mind and savings to homeowners.<br />

“iDevices have taken total<br />

home automation to an<br />

entirely new level”<br />

then&<br />

now<br />

We compare current aspects of home design to those<br />

from 20 years ago, to see what has—or hasn’t—changed.<br />

CREATIVE SYSTEMS<br />

Pass the popcorn, there have been major advances on the home theater front during<br />

the last 20 years. Steve Collotta, president of Creative Systems, asserts that projectors<br />

have been transformed by new technologies. Gone are the days of the three-gun RGB<br />

projectors. Now, high-def 4K laser projectors are the best and brightest. The image<br />

quality is beyond compare, and they make quite an impact on the large screen. Years<br />

ago, you had to dim the lights to catch a flick; these days you can let in the sun.<br />

WESTON KITCHENS<br />

Twenty years ago, there was the view that<br />

American manufacturing was third-rate, explains<br />

James Simko of Weston Kitchens. “If you could<br />

afford it, sleek European cars, appliances,<br />

clothing and cabinets were a ‘must.’” This<br />

earlier European contemporary kitchen design<br />

in light maple and mahogany is an example. Its<br />

streamlined cabinet doors, high-gloss finishes<br />

and gentle curves make it “the pinnacle of<br />

sophisticated luxury.” Today, transitional kitchen<br />

designs are en vogue. While the “quality,<br />

variety and functionality of appliances is quickly<br />

changing,” says Simko, as have the high-quality<br />

storage options,<br />

THEN “the basics of<br />

superior kitchen<br />

design” by top<br />

pros remain largely<br />

unchanged. To<br />

this day, he adds,<br />

accomplished cooks<br />

often know the best<br />

possible kitchen<br />

layouts for a given<br />

space.<br />

THEN<br />

TILE SHOWCASE<br />

Stone was just becoming popular 20 years ago, says Fred Merullo of Tile Showcase.<br />

Rustic tumbled stone in warm earth tones were the norm, with treatments layering<br />

on the sizes and embellishments. The same held true for tile, offers Merullo. Designs<br />

featured layers of color, often hand-painted tile and the moldings were done with a<br />

heavy hand. Today, “the looks are cleaner, and more sophisticated, with a focus on<br />

texture and natural looking products” (think porcelains that look like wood or stone).<br />

Cooler tones—grays and whites—have become the coveted hues, and we’re also seeing<br />

elegant combinations of glass and stone.<br />

THEN<br />

SPLASH<br />

Two decades ago, Splash debuted this<br />

beautiful translucent basin when Kohler’s<br />

vessel sinks were first coming into the market.<br />

It was “inspired by fine crystal,” says a Splash<br />

spokesperson, and boasts a radiant color<br />

and unique design that looks handcrafted.<br />

Today, the Vitraform sink is making waves. This<br />

stunner is the most luxurious glass product in<br />

the marketplace, maintain the pros at Splash,<br />

and sought out by those who want a sleek and<br />

spa-like master bath. The elite series offers<br />

clear and frosted finishes, as well as engraved<br />

and gilded versions.<br />

20<br />

bostondesignguide.com


THEN<br />

<strong>20th</strong> ANNIVERSARY<br />

BACK BAY SHUTTER CO., INC.<br />

Bill Morton, vice president of Back Bay Shutter Co.,<br />

Inc. chuckles that window treatments haven’t changed<br />

much in 20 years, or even 3,000, what with names like<br />

Roman shades and Venetian blinds. By far the biggest<br />

change in the last 20 years, he says, is the ability<br />

to motorize them, including those on a skylight, a<br />

notoriously challenging window to treat.<br />

THEN<br />

KOTZEN INTERIORS, LLP<br />

Barbara Kotzen of Kotzen Interiors, LLP studies<br />

these two bedroom scenes and says without<br />

hesitation that her design philosophy hasn’t<br />

changed. Twenty years ago, her mission was to<br />

achieve interior designs of luxury and comfort<br />

that appear effortless. Her approach considers<br />

the room as a whole—its architecture, finishes,<br />

fabrics and furniture.<br />

ARCHITECTURAL<br />

KITCHENS, INC.<br />

Back in the 1990s and 2000s, says owner Bill<br />

Prachnick, “everybody wanted fussier kitchens” that<br />

were heavy on the embellishments—features like<br />

the fluted pilasters, glazed finishes, handpainted<br />

tiles and moldings shown here. Today, “homeowners<br />

are looking for simplified, sophisticated—but not<br />

contemporary—kitchen designs,” says Prachnick.<br />

Natural elements, surfaces<br />

of wood or stone, are THEN<br />

reflected in the heart of the<br />

home. Lighter countertops,<br />

white marble particularly,<br />

have picked up where<br />

darker shades left off.<br />

Backsplashes have gone<br />

“more basic,” and people<br />

have taken a shine to nickel<br />

finishes for hardware.<br />

New England Standards<br />

Recognizing quintessential New England style homes that were featured in our first editions.<br />

PATRICK AHEARN ARCHITECT<br />

This beloved home in Wellesley, designed by Patrick<br />

Ahearn Architect, is heavy on the romance and<br />

universal in its appeal. Elevated on a verdant knoll,<br />

with stone walls that terrace down to the streetscape,<br />

this cottage-style house has a commanding but<br />

approachable presence. With its 12 pitch chunky wood<br />

shingled roofs, New England stone and deep set windows,<br />

this home has a gentle rhythm and a seamless design. Its architecture<br />

has seen five additions, but you’d never know it.<br />

DUCKHAM ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS<br />

Located on the tip of Chatham’s Morris Island, this new<br />

construction by Duckham Architecture & Interiors has<br />

all of the hallmarks of a classic Cape Cod home—<br />

weathered shingle siding, a red cedar shingled roof and<br />

a wraparound porch that looks out to Nantucket Sound.<br />

Perched atop a bluff overlooking the dune, this beautiful<br />

site posed a challenge many wouldn’t tackle, as it slopes<br />

dramatically from left to right. They kept the roofline<br />

low to buffer against coastal winds but gave it Gambrel<br />

elements so it feels spacious inside.<br />

KENNETH VONA CONSTRUCTION<br />

This beautiful Colonial<br />

crafted by Kenneth Vona<br />

Construction is steeped in<br />

a decidedly New England<br />

sensibility, and is, quite<br />

possibly, an architectural<br />

representation of the<br />

American dream. A vision<br />

in stone, clapboard,<br />

copper and slate, the home showcases a full palette of traditional<br />

New England materials. Multiple fireplaces, bay and ox-eye<br />

windows, dormers, porticos and porches carry this classic far from<br />

the realm of the everyday.<br />

BOSTON BILLIARD EMPORIUM<br />

“Many of the antique pool tables we sell at Boston Billiard<br />

Emporium were made right here in New England,” says<br />

Owner Stephen Kelly, and “built by the hands of New England<br />

craftsmen.” Years ago, these magnificent tables were regarded<br />

as furniture and owned only by the affluent. The hand-hewn<br />

pieces wore the style of the<br />

furnishings of the day; the<br />

Victorian Era featured rare<br />

woods and ornate details,<br />

while the pool tables of<br />

the Arts and Crafts Period<br />

had simpler lines and were<br />

fashioned in quarter sawn<br />

white oak.<br />

22<br />

ADOLFO PEREZ ARCHITECT<br />

<strong>20th</strong> ANNIVERSARY<br />

This home was one of Adolfo Perez’s first major “modern” projects, says the<br />

principal. He inherited it from an architect who had completed the exterior of<br />

rough fieldstone in a traditional New England design, but had a vision for the<br />

interior that differed from the owner’s. Perez was greeted by a “bare shell,” where he<br />

could juxtapose a more modern sensibility against the traditional one of the façade. To<br />

do so, he “balanced the almost primitive character of the stone walls with a palette of more<br />

refined but robust materials and finishes.” He also fashioned “rooms” by creating freestanding<br />

furniture partitions within the space, allowing the materials to speak for themselves. This<br />

sculptural way of designing still informs his work today.<br />

SANFORD CUSTOM BUILDERS<br />

As its name indicates, the Colonial has been the classic<br />

American home from the time the settlers stepped foot in<br />

this nation and began building communities. A fondness<br />

for the style is almost innate, and “ingrained into the New<br />

England psyche,” says Marc Kaplan of Sanford Custom<br />

Builders. This particular Colonial in historic Concord is<br />

successful for its stellar design and construction. The red brick<br />

and white trim is a winning combination that people have been<br />

viewing for years. You can find the same red brick used on this project<br />

in Harvard Yard.<br />

MGA | MARCUS GLEYSTEEN ARCHITECTS<br />

The first official house of MGa | Marcus Gleysteen Architects,<br />

this home was based on a similar style that Marcus Gleysteen<br />

had designed for a family member in Weston. A passerby saw<br />

the striking Shingle Style, pulled in the driveway and asked for<br />

the name of the architect. A new incarnation was born. The<br />

home shown here was informed by the classic Shingle Styles<br />

on the shores of Maine and Gleysteen’s coastal travels, where<br />

he noted that many captains’ homes had entrances with “a<br />

Chinese aspect to them.” The latter inspired Gleysteen to<br />

develop his “own modern interpretation of<br />

classical details,” which find expression in<br />

the decorative portico with white trim.<br />

FALLON CUSTOM HOMES & RENOVATIONS<br />

This expansive Shingle Style new construction by Fallon<br />

Custom Homes looks like it belongs at the beach,<br />

says Owner Peter Fallon, rather than its Brookline<br />

locale. It has all of the hallmarks of the timeless<br />

style—the shingles, sloped roofline, shutters,<br />

chimney and stone terraces—and more than a<br />

few inspired details. Exquisite window details<br />

grace four full floors at the rear elevation, says<br />

Fallon, and “really make the house.”<br />

Timeless<br />

trends<br />

We asked the principals what makes these<br />

designs from 20 years ago so enduring, and<br />

what they’d do differently today, if anything.…<br />

Jan Gleysteen Architects, Inc.<br />

This gray and gracious clapboard home is ageless, offers Jan Gleysteen<br />

because it incorporates elements of classicism, employing design<br />

principles that stretch back to the Renaissance, never mind 20 years.<br />

The studied use of symmetry gives the home lasting appeal (note the<br />

two strong gable wings and the “sunrise” archway that echoes the front<br />

door portico), as does its geometry and the hierarchy of the home’s<br />

massing. Its “bas-relief design,” comprised of four plane walls, creates tension<br />

and interest, and the composition as a whole is softened by boxwoods, and<br />

wisteria that climbs along the pergola. Were Gleysteen to do it again today? He’d likely<br />

panelize the window atop the portico to mirror those of the twin bay windows.<br />

Gregory Lombardi Design<br />

This landscape of a genteel New England<br />

waterfront home is successful years<br />

later because of the feeling it conjures,<br />

says Gregory Lombardi. The scene is<br />

“an invitation to slow down” that’s about<br />

engaging with the water, and, possibly,<br />

memories. Even at the time of completion it<br />

harkened back to an earlier time; it was quietly<br />

inserted (from scratch!) in a way that preserved the<br />

character of the vista. While oceanside environmental<br />

regulations are complex, this design has a less-is-more<br />

sensibility. The gate is elegant and simple to keep the focus<br />

on the view, says Lombardi, while the boardwalk is a trigger<br />

that delivers a “jolt of excitement,” compelling onlookers to<br />

speed down its path and splash in the sea.<br />

Anthony Catalfano Interiors, Inc.<br />

A thorough understanding of proportion and scale give this<br />

rich bedroom a lasting appeal that is as relevant today as it was<br />

when it was created 20 years ago. It has an “eclectic but clean”<br />

feel says Anthony Catalfano, that has staying power, thanks to<br />

its neutral palette and decorative accents, including draperies<br />

hung from stainless steel wire and a white leather upholstered<br />

bed embellished with bronze nailheads. Plus, the room’s<br />

fireside vantage and collection of contemporary art never go<br />

out of style.<br />

<strong>20th</strong> ANNIVERSARY<br />

Nicholaeff Architecture<br />

+ Design, Inc.<br />

Most architects, maintains Doreve<br />

Nicholaeff, strive for designs that are<br />

timeless, and Nicholaeff feels she achieved that goal with this<br />

complete renovation and addition to a Cape Cod ranch-style cottage.<br />

It helps, of course, that the materials she utilized 20 years ago have<br />

long been part of Cape Cod’s architectural landscape and show no<br />

signs of stopping. Nicholaeff is most influenced by “the big picture,”<br />

how the house sits on the land, and how it functions for the owner.<br />

If those things are successful, the design endures. If she were to<br />

design the house again today, she’d consider advances that fall outside<br />

the realm of design. She’d raise the foundation to suit the changed<br />

floodplain, update the HVAC system and insulation and enjoy<br />

selecting the tile, appliances and fixtures from the wealth of options<br />

on the market today.<br />

LDa Architecture & Interiors<br />

This red cedar shingle-clad retreat in Essex prevails because of its<br />

rich architectural character and strong connection to the grand<br />

summer homes that have dotted the North Shore coastline since<br />

the 19th century, offers Treffle LaFleche. Its durable materials also<br />

stand the test of time, and its contemporary composition and<br />

open-living floor plan continue to be of-the-moment. While the<br />

home’s double-hung windows are still prevalent today, LaFleche<br />

might go with larger casements for a more European aesthetic,<br />

tone down the historic reference a skosh and change up the crisp<br />

white trim that shows the wear more than a darker stain would.<br />

Detail Millwork, Inc.<br />

This fireplace mantel, crafted by Owner Richard Rigoli of Detail Millwork, “was<br />

meant to be simple yet elegant,” says Rigoli, “and I think it hits the mark.” The<br />

striking architectural detail is the focus of an inviting living room and was<br />

designed in African striped mahogany and trimmed with stainless steel. The<br />

rich veneers of the handsome hearth have to be matched to get the look<br />

and grain just right, and then vacuum pressed to resemble one solid piece<br />

of wood. Good craftsmanship lasts forever, explains Rigoli, so he wouldn’t<br />

change a thing. “If you were to look at this today, you’d think I did it last<br />

week. But I did it 20 years ago.”<br />

Catalano Architects<br />

This stunning foyer designed by Catalano Architects pays homage to the<br />

“‘Living Hall,’ which was “an integral element of the Shingle Style work<br />

of firms like Peabody & Stearns and Arthur Little,” explains Principal Tom<br />

Catalano. The entrance evokes the designs of the storied,<br />

prolific firms of the Gilded Age, but updates the traditional<br />

configuration of the switchback stair often seen in the<br />

Shingle Styles of yore by virtue of its simple detailing<br />

and palette of off-white stained wood. There is also<br />

a subtle nod to an Oriental sensibility utilized by<br />

premier Beaux Arts architect Stanford White. Says,<br />

Catalano, “the railing is reminiscent of the way that<br />

White’s interior architecture was influenced by<br />

domestic Japanese interiors.”<br />

Allin the<br />

For many of the companies featured within Boston<br />

Design Guide’s pages, a commitment to excellence<br />

isn’t just good business, it’s personal.<br />

Clarke<br />

FAMILY<br />

Tom Clarke launched Clarke Distribution Company, when he was chosen<br />

by Sub-Zero as the first wholesale distributor in New England. What began<br />

with a small showroom and just six employees has morphed into two<br />

award-winning showrooms, a Culinary Service Center, an appliance service<br />

company, and, along with Sub-Zero, many more elite brands. Tom and his son,<br />

Sean, who was recently named president, have positioned Clarke to be an<br />

indispensable resource for the trade and homeowners alike, as they can “Test<br />

Drive” appliances in the showroom.<br />

Yankee Craftsman<br />

Gary and Scott Sweeney’s father William Sweeney,<br />

always loved working with his hands. He was a<br />

“Mr. Fix-It” type who repaired antiques out of his<br />

garage. In 1977, he bought the barn where Yankee<br />

Craftsman stands today. Gary and Scott Sweeney,<br />

the youngest of the band of brothers who now<br />

run the antiques restoration and lighting company,<br />

inherited their dad’s love of tinkering and rewiring.<br />

Yankee Craftsman has been involved with major<br />

restorations at Harvard University, the State<br />

House, and other historic properties and has lit up<br />

the big screen for myriad movie sets.<br />

Louis W. Mian, Inc.<br />

For Louis W. Mian, Inc., it’s not only the artistry, it’s the<br />

expertise that extends back four generations. The company’s<br />

depth of knowledge first began when mosaic artisan Angelo<br />

Mian of Italy arrived in Boston at age 26, and it has continued—<br />

uninterrupted—ever since.<br />

Over time, the firm has grown to include two more generations<br />

and garnered an unprecedented 10 consecutive National<br />

Awards for excellence in terrazzo and mosaic. After seeing the<br />

demand for marble and granite, Louis W. Mian Jr. redirected the<br />

focus to include all types of natural stone, but he didn’t shift the<br />

business’s unwavering commitment to quality.<br />

Roger Pelissier Photography<br />

Roger Pelissier Photography, a portrait studio in the heart of<br />

Wellesley, is a joint creative venture co-owned by Roger and Nancy<br />

Pelissier. The husband-and-wife team have developed a winning<br />

strategy: “I take the photos,” says Roger. “She’s the boss.”<br />

Roger, whose artistry is widely represented throughout these<br />

pages, “focuses on anything with people.” His studio is a family<br />

affair on both sides of the lens. “We see a lot of families every year,<br />

so we get to see those kids grow and mature and turn into adults,”<br />

says Roger. “It’s at the point now where they are hiring us to<br />

photograph their kids, so we’ve moved onto the next generation.”<br />

<strong>20th</strong> ANNIVERSARY<br />

F.H. Perry Builder<br />

Allison Iantosca, owner of F.H. Perry Builder says at our<br />

company, “We all feel like we kind of grew up under Dad.”<br />

She’s speaking, of course, of Finley Perry who launched the<br />

company in the mid 70s, with a carpentry and trade focus<br />

before converting it to the “management model” that is<br />

thriving today. Finley always “found great joy in the other<br />

people in this industry, and I have shared that with him,” says<br />

Iantosca. He was also humble, didn’t sweat the competition<br />

and was staunchly dedicated to craft and building well.<br />

Dad would be proud; Iantosca has not only continued his<br />

legacy, she has put her own stamp on the distinguished<br />

construction company.<br />

Renjeau Galleries<br />

When Renate Rosenfield opened Renjeau Galleries 40 years ago, she<br />

says, “We knew art, but we didn’t know anything about retail.” One<br />

evening, she and her husband “had the crazy idea of opening an art<br />

gallery.” They had lived in the Boston area for all of three months when<br />

they saw a “For Lease” sign on a Natick space. The rent was cheap,<br />

and Rosenfield found herself with a gallery. Her impulse paid off. Her<br />

son, Rob, who studied art history, joined her in the business 20 years<br />

in. Together, they’ve added a wealth of custom framing options and a<br />

second building on-site for exhibitions.<br />

The MacDowell Company<br />

Not too many people can say they launched their<br />

business at age 16, but Roy MacDowell Jr. can. With<br />

a pickup and an enviable work ethic, Roy did stone<br />

masonry and enlisted his four brothers to help, among<br />

them, Bruce MacDowell Jr.’s father. Fifty years later, the<br />

second generation is taking the firm to new heights.<br />

With Bruce overseeing all business operations. Bruce,<br />

too, was immersed in the field at a young age, mixing<br />

cement for the stonemasons, until Roy invited him into<br />

the office to learn project and business management.<br />

For both, their business is a passion, and the key to the<br />

award-winning company’s success. “My father always<br />

told me, whatever you’re going to be in life, make sure<br />

you’re the best at it,” says Roy.<br />

Jarvis Appliance<br />

Jarvis Appliance has always been service minded. In fact,<br />

before Antonio Jarvis founded his own company in 1957,<br />

he worked as a repair technician for a major/sales and<br />

service company. As his clientele and reputation grew, he<br />

was able to rent his own shop and branch into sales, as<br />

well. Today, his children Nancy and Tony run the business<br />

he began in a state-of-the-art showroom in Wellesley and<br />

offer over a dozen brands of appliances. They also, of<br />

course, “service what they sell.”<br />

And, a lot of knowledge. It means we know the ins and outs of working inside just<br />

about every Boston neighborhood as well as those surrounding them.<br />

Whether it’s successfully managing traffi c fl ow to allow for our construction deliveries down<br />

one of those charmingly narrow, one-way streets in Cambridge, or handling the nuanced<br />

differences in pulling permits from Beacon Hill to the waterfront, we thrive on making the<br />

complex simple. Then there’s the decades worth of project time spent in Weston, Wellesley,<br />

Newton, and Brookline restoring estates and residences that have stood the test of time, and<br />

building others to join their ranks.<br />

Headed by Allison Iantosca, the F.H. Perry Team helps homeowners move projects<br />

from dreaming about to creating. In their hands, a specialized building process ensures<br />

both schedule and budget while workmanship remains uncompromised. It’s exceptionally<br />

rewarding and why those in the trade and homeowners alike count on F.H. Perry to<br />

deliver on their vision.<br />

Makes the Difference<br />

Just twenty minutes from Boston, on Route 9 in Natick, Renjeau Galleries maintains a<br />

comprehensive collection of fi ne art by some of the region’s fi nest established and emerging artists.<br />

The main gallery, a 100-year-old home with several showrooms, contains the majority of the<br />

collection. A smaller annex building on the property provides an intimate space used for special<br />

exhibitions, highlighting a particular artist, or private viewings.<br />

Many customers enjoy scheduling appointments in the gallery to see the artwork they have<br />

previewed on Renjeau’s expansive website. It’s an ideal solution for busy clients, and is often<br />

combined with borrowing on approval or an in-home consultation, which enables clients to<br />

visualize the art in the home or offi ce space.<br />

Additionally, Renjeau offers an incredible selection of custom framing choices as well as expert<br />

fi ne art restoration.<br />

Elegance<br />

Meets Excellence<br />

Boston Billiard Emporium combines a passion for antiques with painstaking craftsmanship.<br />

PROfi l e<br />

The “Golden Age of Billiards” lasted from the 1860’s until the Great Depression.<br />

During this period, a billiard table was not simply a game table, it was a piece of<br />

furniture of the highest caliber. These tables were made by the fi nest artisans, using<br />

rare woods from all over the world.<br />

Since 1975, Boston Billiard Emporium has been New England’s leading conservator<br />

of antique billiard tables. Owner Stephen Kelly combines his love of antiques with the<br />

painstaking craftsmanship required to bring the exquisite billiard tables of a bygone<br />

era back to their original grandeur.<br />

Their tables have been featured in books, movies and magazines, as well as on<br />

NECN’s “Dream Home” and PBS’ “This Old House”. Many of New England’s interior<br />

designers as well as architects have planned their client’s billiard room around a<br />

billiard table and accessories purchased from Boston Billiards.<br />

New pool tables are also available at Boston Billiard Emporium. These tables can<br />

be customized by selecting the species of wood, color of stain, cloth and pockets<br />

so that the table works better in your space. You will also fi nd a great selection of<br />

accessories, as well as a full-service repairs department for anything that may go<br />

wrong with your table.<br />

Land<br />

A working gentleman’s farm in<br />

Dover celebrates its agrarian roots.<br />

bostondesignguide.com 147


“I love everything about this room.<br />

It imbues a sense of calm.”<br />

- Barbara Kotzen<br />

148<br />

bostondesignguide.com


Growing up back in Minnesota, home was<br />

a cattle and dairy farm. A kinship with the<br />

land and a hand-to-soil connection was bred<br />

and valued, and tended as earnestly as the<br />

fields and livestock. So, when work brought<br />

a Midwestern family to Massachusetts, this<br />

mind-set traveled with them, where it would<br />

steer the narrative for their new home, here<br />

in New England.<br />

The family wanted farming in their lives, and in their<br />

child’s life, and enlisted Catalano Architects to design an<br />

agrarian-based homestead, or, what principal Tom Catalano<br />

terms a “gentleman’s farm.” The land and structures would<br />

be more than picturesque; there would be “a real farming<br />

component,” says Catalano, where the client could raise beef<br />

cattle and poultry.<br />

They were drawn to a working farm in Dover that was<br />

for sale and part of a land trust preserving the town’s rural<br />

character. The fertile, rolling property would allow them to<br />

provide some of their acreage to a local farmer who runs<br />

a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share program<br />

that supplies residents with fresh produce, and leave the<br />

family of three ample room for pastures and fields of their<br />

own, a vegetable garden, an agricultural barn for their cows<br />

and chickens, a second, more upscale barn for dinner parties<br />

and business meetings, a pool and pool house, and a gracious<br />

new main residence.<br />

The land drove the site plan for the estate’s many features,<br />

explains principal project manager Troy Sober, who worked<br />

closely with landscape architect Gregory Lombardi of<br />

Gregory Lombardi Design. The house was carefully sited<br />

to indulge the existing landscape and “take advantage of its<br />

splendor,” says Sober. “We worked hard with the architect<br />

to capture good sun views, long views of their lawn and the<br />

open fields beyond.”<br />

A spring-fed pond on the northeast side of the grounds,<br />

stocked with trout for fly-fishing, also informed the program.<br />

So much so that Catalano designed the main residence—a<br />

majestic yet approachable manor mixing western red cedar<br />

clapboard, red cedar shingle and natural New England<br />

fieldstone—in the shape of a Y, so that both ends of the home<br />

embrace the serene, scenic amenity.<br />

The house was oriented for maximum southern exposure<br />

to afford golden meadow views and interior spaces flooded<br />

with natural light. The agricultural barn, too, was positioned<br />

to face south, explains Jon Wardwell, president of J.W.<br />

Construction, as the client desired an “energy-neutral” home,<br />

scripted with a sustainability story. The rustic post-and-beam<br />

structure was the first construct built, and equipped with<br />

solar panels that “generate enough power to feed the house,”<br />

and run the geothermal wells, says Wardwell.<br />

This sensitivity to setting informed decisions great and<br />

small. While erecting the conference barn—an outbuilding<br />

bostondesignguide.com 149


The owners have a Midwestern value<br />

that they bring to the table every day and an appreciation for<br />

craft. Time and time again, they’ve thanked the workers for<br />

what they were able to build for them.<br />

With its luscious fabrics and furnishings, the<br />

formal dining room is the most lavish space<br />

in the house. The Rose Tarlow chinoiserie<br />

piece under the mirror is “a work of art,”<br />

enthuses Kotzen.<br />

bostondesignguide.com 151


with masterful woodworking and a New England fieldstone<br />

fireplace at its core—the client had a root cellar chiseled into<br />

the earth beneath the stone steps of the hillside. Doing so<br />

would provide the CSA farmer precious underground space<br />

to store potatoes, squash and other produce during winter.<br />

They also opted to transplant a prized, decades-old<br />

magnolia tree that was beloved by the former owner and<br />

rooted where the pool terrace would be. “We could have<br />

just cut that tree down,” reveals principal Bob Marzilli of<br />

landscape contractor R.P. Marzilli & Company. Instead, “we<br />

balled and burlapped it and moved it with a crane to make it<br />

a focal point on the property,” preserving the site’s heritage.<br />

New uses were also found for ledge, recycled granite and<br />

the white pines that needed to be cleared, maintains Marzilli.<br />

The ledge now functions as masonry, appearing in fieldstone<br />

walls reborn after falling into disrepair or as boulders defining<br />

the pond, while the timber was harvested and finished at a<br />

Western Massachusetts mill, and used for the walls in a study,<br />

and flooring on the third level and in-law suite.<br />

That select materials were sourced and salvaged is<br />

impressive, but what is even more noteworthy is how well<br />

they’re employed. The home’s overall sensibility may be “a<br />

relaxed yet traditional design aesthetic,” says Catalano, but<br />

there is nothing relaxed about the craft behind the interior<br />

and exterior details, windows, masonry and woodwork.<br />

agrarian landscape even inside the house.”<br />

LEFT: 17,000 gallons of water runs through the spring-fed pond every day; still it looks tranquil, reflecting the barn in its waters.<br />

ABOVE: Gregory Lombardi Design developed a plant palette that “felt very natural and native and part of the existing surroundings.”<br />

During construction, 100-year-old peonies that were beloved by the former owner were pulled up and planted in the vegetable garden,<br />

where they awaited a place in the flower beds worthy of their provenance.<br />

framing and exterior carpentry, expresses the view of everyone<br />

on the team: “Everything about that house is beautiful. The<br />

aesthetics, the scale and proportion are spot on.”<br />

While a grand home, Catalano downplayed its size, breaking<br />

it down into smaller subcomponents. In fact, he says, “from<br />

any one view you can never really take in the entire house.”<br />

Rusticity was saved for the barns; the main residence is<br />

refined and balanced, full of settings that are catch-yourbreath<br />

beautiful. The artistry of interior designer Barbara<br />

Kotzen of Kotzen Interiors, LLP, is woven into the layers of<br />

every room; she has conceived elegant, intimate living spaces<br />

that invite you to sit and stay awhile. The tranquil living room<br />

subtly shimmers in silver, white and soft blue, while the regal<br />

dining room dazzles with its angled fireplace, commissioned<br />

oil painting and Scalamandré fabric on its upholstered walls.<br />

The home is a composite of a thousand design decisions—<br />

the metals in the tile of a powder room, the onyx surround<br />

of a fireplace, the woodwork in the “his and her” studies, the<br />

Rose Tarlow chinoiserie piece in the dining room, and the<br />

many works of art, most inspired by nature and commissioned<br />

expressly for a space, selected by Kotzen and the owner with<br />

consultant Julie Mussafer of Jules Place.<br />

“Everyone needs a Barbara,” contends the owner, crediting<br />

Kotzen with presenting choices that made her believe she<br />

helped craft the surroundings. “She made me feel like I did<br />

this,” she says, with an appreciative wave of her hand. Which<br />

is just how Kotzen likes it. My interiors, offers Kotzen, are<br />

“reflective of the client’s taste and how they want the house<br />

to feel.” In this home, that feeling is one of livable luxury.<br />

Every level of this home cultivates<br />

an indoor-outdoor connection.<br />

The breeze, the salt air and the setting’s natural elements become design essentials.<br />

A<br />

close-knit bAnd of fAmily And friends hAve<br />

descended on the postcard-perfect peninsula on<br />

Buzzards Bay for years, returning to the summer<br />

playground for lazy, memory-filled days, where<br />

time, for a few blissful months, unfolds at a gentler<br />

pace. This exposed enclave, carved by famed landscape architect<br />

Frederick Law on a promontory facing due west, has to be among<br />

the most spectacular on Cape Cod. It’s blessed by a natural backdrop<br />

of sparkling waters and dramatic, fiery sunsets and now, courtesy of<br />

Hutker Architects, an extraordinary, boldly-realized Shingle Style<br />

home in which to enjoy it.<br />

The goal of Mark Hutker, principal of Hutker Architects, is to<br />

evolve the art of residential architecture even as it looks back.<br />

“To understand it. To learn from it, and then move it forward to<br />

accommodate our new lifestyles, technologies and our new ways of<br />

life.” This is exactly what he did for a major renovation of a 100-yearold-plus<br />

home, carriage house addition, pool house and boathouse.<br />

A seaside sanctuary that is equal parts invention and beauty, and<br />

etched with a respect for tradition and modern-day functionality.<br />

Rebuilding on Olmsted’s terrain in a community “that values<br />

its architectural heritage” is a responsibility. But Hutker Architects<br />

found in C.H. Newton Builders, Inc. craftspeople with a “rich<br />

history of generational construction” and a depth of understanding<br />

for the construction details specific to the coastal locale.<br />

The architectural program preserved as much of the existing<br />

structure as possible, including its historic core, but called for a<br />

new ground-level floor with an open plan for contemporary living<br />

and entertaining. To achieve this, C.H. Newton Builders lifted the<br />

top two flights from the existing home and rolled them aside, while<br />

they poured the new foundation and built the first-floor deck. The<br />

topmost sections were then set back in place by crane, where they<br />

fit perfectly. Fortunately, says Chairman and CEO David Newton,<br />

“After being in the business for 32 years, I love a good challenge.”<br />

As C.H. Newton Builders crafts everything from historic<br />

preservations to ultra modern high-end residences, his firm’s<br />

versatility came shining through. “When Hutker and his team<br />

designed the house, he saved so much from the original,” he explains,<br />

praising Hutker for the dexterous way he blended old with new.<br />

The concept developed organically. Says Hutker, “The upper two<br />

floors had great character, featured by a gable roof, unique chevronshaped<br />

dormers and beautiful shingle details unique to the craft of<br />

the local builder.” His tone reveals it’s a privilege to safeguard such<br />

details and weave them throughout the inviting new constructs.<br />

This convivial coastal kitchen<br />

reflects a modern way of life.<br />

The kitchen, with its hidden pantry, is “out of the<br />

ordinary,” says Newton. “A walk back in time.”<br />

And yet it also features state-of-the-art,<br />

of-the-moment appliances.<br />

160 bostondesignguide.com


ostondesignguide.com 161


“In a lot of the homes we build,”<br />

says David Newton, “the next generation and<br />

the generations to follow come back to revisit the<br />

past as their ancestors saw it.”<br />

Hutker created “smaller, more intimate moments in<br />

the house and in the landscape,” he says. The master<br />

bedroom turret (far right) is just such a space, as are<br />

multiple roof decks that are separate from the primary<br />

outdoor areas and perfect for quiet reading or sunbathing.<br />

162<br />

bostondesignguide.com


Panoramic views of the water with its steady parade of boats, the<br />

beaches and those sensational sunsets are captured within the interior<br />

living spaces. Porches surround the home’s perimeter on every level<br />

and lift-and-slide doors “open, almost completely on the north and west<br />

side of the home,” says Newton, extending the magnificent terrain.<br />

Richard Hallberg of Richard Hallberg Interior Design continued<br />

the indoor-outdoor connection within the home’s luxurious, livable<br />

setting. He fills the tranquil, polished spaces with natural fibers and<br />

textures for an effect that’s like the perfect beach day—sunny and crisp<br />

and restorative.<br />

State-of-the-art designs and amenities are featured throughout the<br />

surroundings. The owners chose the “most current and modern features<br />

and design in today’s appliances,” offers Service Manager Ken Crane of<br />

Crane Appliance. Creative Systems configured “rock solid, easy-to-use”<br />

audio and video, lighting and climate control, and motorized shades<br />

for all three buildings, says Director of Systems Development Ronnie<br />

Zielinski, wrapping audio throughout the exposed deck, installing<br />

custom speakers in the stone pool house floor and incorporating a TV<br />

lift on a swivel in the kitchen that can be viewed from any angle.<br />

Even the landscape, conceived by Reed Hilderbrand and executed<br />

by R.P. Marzilli & Company, has a sleek aesthetic. “It’s more modern<br />

than what Olmsted would have done,” says Principal Bob Marzilli,<br />

and boasts a linear, contemporary style. While gorgeous, the exposed<br />

grounds didn’t come easily. R.P. Marzilli had to establish plantings at<br />

the shoreline and seed rather than sod the expansive grass—all under<br />

a constant wind.<br />

The end result, however, is a beautiful, lush lawn that stretches to<br />

the sea. Grounds that are worthy of an extraordinary property that will<br />

call to current and someday generations, and allow them to experience<br />

Cape Cod in the summer just like those who came before them.<br />

HIP to be<br />

Square<br />

Adolfo Perez, principal of Adolfo Perez Architect, was<br />

commissioned to create a comfortable, family estate for<br />

the client, something “traditional, with a twist.” Yet as the<br />

design process evolved, so did the new owners’ resolve<br />

to inhabit something a little more unique. “Traditional”<br />

soon morphed into unabashedly modern, with Perez,<br />

together with general contractor Thoughtforms,<br />

delivering a beautifully linear home that prizes function<br />

and form, and isn’t afraid to make a statement.<br />

bostondesignguide.com 165


The striking, sculptural house has<br />

a distinctively horizontal feeling,<br />

rendered by a stone wrap along the<br />

entire first floor answered by fourfoot,<br />

flat roof overhangs. Its exterior is<br />

composed in stucco and Vals quartzite, a beautiful<br />

stone from Switzerland that mingles blue, gray<br />

and green tones, and “more importantly,” says<br />

Perez, “a broken cleft face.” This face of the<br />

stone courses in varying heights and textures,<br />

and gives the home a less formal feeling. It<br />

also “anchors the stone to the land,” maintains<br />

Mark Doughty, principal at Thoughtforms. The<br />

rugged surface provides a stylistic counterpoint<br />

to the smooth stucco and clean expanses of<br />

floor-to-ceiling windows—design features in<br />

and of themselves—that bring the outdoors in<br />

and bathe the interior spaces in glorious light,<br />

sending it deep into the home.<br />

There is a truth to the home’s setting that is<br />

achieved by an aesthetic driven by function. A<br />

dramatic floating stair in the two-story entrance<br />

hall serves as an emblem of this design<br />

philosophy. Equal parts beauty and utility,<br />

the concrete stair is, quite literally, the “heart<br />

of the home,” says Perez. The residence is<br />

organized around the visual centerpiece, which<br />

is “designed and engineered like a bridge, and<br />

anchored on two sides,” says Perez. The effect<br />

is one of “apparent simplicity,” offers Doughty,<br />

however, the mechanics involved—the weight,<br />

the time needed for the concrete to reach its<br />

full strength and the calculations needed for<br />

precision, make this design feature spectacular.<br />

The streams of sunlight that pervade the open,<br />

airy interior settings keep the modern space from<br />

coming off as cold or stark. A neutral color palette and<br />

end grain wood block warm the concrete floors and<br />

minimal wall treatments for an industrial sensibility that<br />

still feels homey. A “less-is-more” feeling, as well as<br />

one of innate glamour is pervasive. Living spaces are<br />

set off by furniture arrangements and forms, metallics<br />

dance with one another, eye-catching works of art and<br />

lighting designs radiate in all directions, while supple<br />

fabrics and downy, piled rugs soften the hard edges.<br />

As one might guess, this modern manse is a smart<br />

home. Creative Systems installed a Crestron system<br />

that allows the homeowner to control the audiovisual,<br />

lighting, air conditioning and heating, and set “scenes”<br />

bridging all of these elements from a touch panel or<br />

remote control. Principal Steve Collotta admits that,<br />

while it was challenging to run wire through the largely<br />

concrete property, Creative Systems addressed the<br />

acoustics when refining the sound system, sending<br />

music soaring throughout the home and into the<br />

landscape.<br />

Outside, the goal was to create a connection<br />

between the structures, namely, the main house,<br />

outdoor kitchen and living room and pool house,<br />

without “a formal unifying element,” says Perez. It<br />

was determined that the main home should grace the<br />

northernmost boundary of the open, doglegged site<br />

to harness the sun and allow views to the South. The<br />

other constructs would be linked by landscaped paths<br />

and surround a large, rear yard.<br />

bostondesignguide.com 169


Its exterior is composed in stucco and Vals quartzite,<br />

a beautiful stone from Switzerland that mingles blue,<br />

gray and green tones, and “more importantly,” says<br />

Perez, “a broken cleft face.” This face of the stone<br />

courses in varying heights and textures, and gives the<br />

home a less formal feeling.<br />

Landscape contractor Bob Marzilli, principal of<br />

R.P. Marzilli & Company, praises landscape architect<br />

Stephen Stimson’s design of a “plank-style pattern<br />

that adds to the contemporary lines of the project<br />

as whole.” The grounds’ bold geometry pits a lush<br />

yard against stone—flat work and granite from Maine,<br />

and the landscape walls and outdoor fireplace from<br />

the Adirondacks. While initially Vals quartzite was<br />

specified for the latter, Marzilli sourced a more costeffective<br />

solution that would still bring the conformity<br />

the project warranted. He was able to match the tones<br />

found in the home’s veneer with stone quarried in the<br />

Adirondacks, and have his team split it and fabricate it<br />

for the cohesive, grounded effect of the estate.<br />

One of the exterior’s most compelling features,<br />

says Perez, is the entrance courtyard for the approach<br />

to the home. It’s “created by two, one-story wings<br />

that form an enclosed courtyard, landscaped with<br />

bamboo and a small water feature that one crosses<br />

over to reach the actual front door,” says Perez. As<br />

it doesn’t face the street, there’s a sense of privacy<br />

to it, as well as a sense of ceremony. A portal to the<br />

confines within, it sets the stage for a sanctuary that<br />

is almost elemental in form, crafted with beauty and<br />

honesty, that places the focus squarely on family.<br />

WALK INTO ANY GENERAL STORE OR KITSCHY GIFT SHOP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE’S<br />

Lakes Region and you’ll see vintage, hand painted signs announcing: “Life is Better at the Lake.” After<br />

spending time amid the pine-laden hills and silvery waters of Lake Winnipesaukee—a heaven-sent<br />

terrain of misty blues and moss greens where vacationers flock to swim, boat, hike or simply get off<br />

the grid for awhile—you’re bound to agree.<br />

bostondesignguide.com 173


The Great Room is on axis with the dining<br />

area and kitchen, utilizing columns over walls<br />

to differentiate the spaces; Right: Situated<br />

lakeside, the porch was crafted as an ideal<br />

spot for afternoon naps and hanging out. It<br />

mingles different wood species—cedar, fir and<br />

even twig—for a playful effect.<br />

174<br />

bostondesignguide.com


A new homeowner, who spent many lazy summer days at his<br />

parents’ lake home as a child, is a believer. While his career carried<br />

this young man and his family west, come July he feels the pull of<br />

the East Coast and an instinct to gather lakeside with friends and<br />

family. This inclination, along with happy memories, compelled him<br />

to build a restful retreat and roots of his own.<br />

He reassembled the team that built his father’s lake house—<br />

Battle Associates Architects, Wood & Clay and Mollie Johnson<br />

Interiors—along with Millwork Masters and Ponders Hollow, to<br />

craft a getaway on a private slip of land with two-mile views of<br />

the glacier-carved lake. Owner/Principal John Battle told his new<br />

client from the start that he wouldn’t design him a home just like<br />

Dad’s. (The premier architect makes a point of “not doing anything<br />

twice.”) No matter, mimicry was never the goal; the only vestiges<br />

would be the spirit of the home and the client’s fondness for it.<br />

Mission accomplished, confirms Kevin Beland, owner and<br />

president of Wood & Clay, a family-run general contracting firm<br />

known for its unique, high-end custom homes on Winnipesaukee<br />

and Squam Lake. The retreat has a relaxed feel and features varied<br />

“wood tones, nice, clean simple lines and a lot of glass, drinking in<br />

the beautiful views.”<br />

The organic construct is one with its environment and comprised<br />

of cedar and skirl siding, Douglas fir and a deeper-than-forest green<br />

painted trim that’s both standard yet special in this locale. Peter<br />

Brnger, general manager of Millwork Masters, the company that<br />

supplied the Marvin Windows and Doors, and the interior and<br />

exterior door systems, hails how Battle Associates Architects works<br />

the design into the landscape. Battle is a master, says Brnger; this<br />

home “looks like it grew right out of the earth.”<br />

It was determined early that the public spaces would have<br />

the best views of the lake’s sun-dappled waters and that the<br />

screened-in porch—where most days begin and end—would be<br />

positioned “right on the sweet spot of the property,” says Battle. The<br />

homeowners knew that the porch, with its rustic outdoor stone<br />

was made for special occasions and reuniting.<br />

fireplace, “would be one of the most important gathering spots,”<br />

explains Battle. It’s the hinge that drives the home’s layout, and is,<br />

essentially, a second living room outdoors.<br />

The great room—a high-volume space that’s open to the dining<br />

and kitchen areas—also takes a lead role. It’s Beland’s favorite<br />

room in the house; he applauds the use of stone in that space, the<br />

curved truss built on-site by Wood & Clay and the glorious feature<br />

window. Straddled by a rustic dinner table that accommodates a<br />

crowd when extended on one end and the porch on the other, it<br />

creates a beautiful space to congregate and enjoy.<br />

For the interior design, earth tones were selected for a natural<br />

look, as “the home was sited so beautifully on the water,” reveals<br />

Johnson. The limpid blue-greens of the lake and sand tones are<br />

reflected inside, coloring welcoming “mix-and-match” furniture.<br />

Johnson “worked from the ground up” to achieve the overall eclectic<br />

vision, finding fabulously unique, casual rugs to protect Ponders<br />

Hollow’s wide-plank sugar maple hardwood floors throughout the<br />

home. “This is their getaway house. They didn’t want it formal, but<br />

they wanted it to be nicely done,” says Johnson.<br />

“Wood & Clay is not shy about experimenting with a lot of<br />

woods and getting a unique look,” says Ray Boelig, Director of<br />

Sales at Ponders Hollow. “They think outside the playbook.” This<br />

philosophy is shared by the entire team, all of whom enjoyed<br />

working on a property that’s styled so differently from a primary<br />

residence. After all, says Beland, “You’re on the lake. It should feel<br />

like a vacation.”<br />

The kitchen uses integrated cabinetry on its premium appliances<br />

from Baron’s Major Brands, as well as fine-finished fixtures from<br />

Kohler’s Artifact series from Splash. Johnson had the lights above<br />

the island crafted from birch bark. Above: The stairs are board<br />

and batten fir, custom made on-site.<br />

CENTER MAINE<br />

Anthony Catalfano’s Post House Commons brings a resort-style<br />

retail destination to the seaside town of Wells, Maine.<br />

ITS MOTTO IS “THE FRIENDLIEST TOWN IN<br />

MAINE,” and thanks to Anthony Catalfano, Wells is<br />

becoming even friendlier. The interior designer has<br />

developed the Post House Commons—a tasteful,<br />

vital marketplace, where residents and visitors<br />

can gather to shop, laugh, enjoy and, when it’s fully<br />

realized, dine.<br />

At the core of coastal Maine, Wells’ location lends<br />

itself to a centralized retail destination; it’s the “segue into<br />

the Kennebunk,” says Catalfano. In fact, the Post House<br />

Commons is positioned squarely on the road most traveled<br />

into Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. “People from all over<br />

come here, so it’s really a gathering point.”<br />

The Southern Maine area is flourishing, and Wells is no<br />

exception. Catalfano is thrilled he invested there two years<br />

ago, when he built a Shingle Style marketplace steeped in a<br />

sophisticated yet country aesthetic. Wells is artsier than its<br />

posh neighbor Kennebunkport, and boasts plenty of room<br />

to grow, not to mention parking. The high-end businesses<br />

that have set up shop in Post House Commons are already<br />

viable and thriving, and “it’s only going to get better,”<br />

he says.<br />

While he may have created a town common, its<br />

businesses are anything but. As the anchor, Anthony<br />

Catalfano Home has its own building, where it houses<br />

a coveted collection of home furnishings and accents.<br />

J Rose, Three Dories, Eyephoria Optical and Wright<br />

Touch Skin Care are all under one roof. J Rose showcases<br />

owner Julianne Rose’s impeccably edited, chic collection<br />

of statement-making rope necklaces, beaded lariats and<br />

other accessories by New York and European designers,<br />

Laird Duncan offers full prescriptions and fills the custom<br />

cases of Eyephoria Optical with height-of-fashion French<br />

sunglasses and whisper-weight eyeglass frames. Wright<br />

Touch Skin Care pampers its clients with customized skin<br />

treatments, facials and more in a serene setting, and Three<br />

Dories peddles breezy but elegant resort wear tailored to a<br />

casual lifestyle (think color-splashed sundresses for women,<br />

and polos and seersucker button-downs for men).<br />

All of the shops complement one another and share<br />

a warm, convivial air that breeds a happy shopping<br />

experience, as well as the feeling of community Catalfano<br />

was after. Now, if a great bistro and European-style bakery<br />

would move in, his vision would be complete.<br />

OUT<br />

of Bounds<br />

Designer Sacha Lakic harnesses<br />

speed, movement and beauty<br />

for his Roche Bobois designs<br />

Text by Sandy Giardi<br />

Photography ©Michel Gibert<br />

Roche Bobois’ 2016 release: Lakic’s<br />

Bubble Sofa, in the new textile Techno<br />

4-D in a fresh shade of mauve<br />

“Since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated<br />

by cars, by speed, by technology and<br />

aerodynamics,” explains Sacha Lakic.<br />

It was this passion that landed him in the world<br />

of automotive design, where his bold show bikes<br />

and futuristic designs have met wide acclaim.<br />

Yet he isn’t bound to this field alone. His zeal<br />

for speed and the poetry of motion informs his<br />

designs for other realms too: fields like furniture<br />

design, fashion and even architecture.<br />

Twenty years ago, François Roche, co-founder<br />

and CEO for the contemporary furniture company<br />

Roche Bobois, was intrigued by Lakic’s car<br />

designs, and suggested he give furniture design<br />

a go. “I did,” said Lakic, “and my first design, the<br />

Onda bed, produced in 1996, was awarded the<br />

“Compasso d’Oro” Casaidea Prize in Rome.” This<br />

success fueled an enduring partnership between<br />

the premier furniture company and Lakic’s<br />

studio that has lasted for 20 years and shows<br />

no signs of stopping. Roche Bobois “trusts me<br />

completely, and this is very important for me….<br />

There is a strong and positive energy running<br />

between us.”<br />

Lakic’s pieces are imbued with motion and<br />

emotion. “I feel that a product that is in motion<br />

is alive. The idea of movement is always present<br />

in my work.” Lakic finds fluidity and freedom in<br />

his forms. He “loves to sculpt shapes.”<br />

242 bostondesignguide.com

He fuses aesthetics, comfort and function in furniture that<br />

is at once cutting-edge yet undeniably classic. Pieces very<br />

much in sync, he says, with the “‘unique savoir faire” of Roche<br />

Bobois. “I like to design products that touch the soul and the<br />

mind of people. The objects I design are to be cherished<br />

long-term, because I endeavor to create products that stand<br />

the test of time.”<br />

“The idea of movement is always present<br />

in my work. I provide objects with a soul.”<br />

Q: How do you approach incorporating a high quality television viewing experience outdoors while maintaining an aesthetically<br />

pleasing, natural landscape?<br />

A: Our main goals with outdoor televisions are to provide clients with options and ensure that the picture quality is uncompromised.<br />

For example, Creative Systems recently commissioned a custom, one-of-a-kind, 130” LED TV designed to rise from the fl oor of<br />

a pool house or stay securely unseen underneath. This unique television, which is the fi rst of its kind in the United States, utilizes<br />

the same technology found at sporting venues; therefore, it eliminates glare and displays crisp, clear, and bright images anytime<br />

during the day or night. Creative Systems believes clients can have both superior function and design.

Community<br />

Young Ideas Painting and Design takes pride in creating,<br />

working with and giving back to the community.<br />

Y<br />

This special <strong>20th</strong> issue, Jeff Young and crew want to celebrate the completion of a barn for<br />

the non-profi t, Gaining Ground in Concord, MA. With the community’s backing, Young Ideas<br />

designed, drew and managed the entire project, as well as painted, tiled and laid the fl ooring.<br />

A longtime board member at the local non-profi t, Jeff led the barn committee, overseeing every<br />

detail to insure the barn’s successful completion. No longer a “farm without a barn,” Gaining<br />

Ground fi nally has a home base for operations. Its 2500 annual volunteers and 60,000 lbs<br />

of organic produce are sorted and distributed to over a dozen food banks and shelters in<br />

the Boston area. Young Ideas takes pride in creating, working with and giving back to the<br />

community. We thank our clients for their donations to the barn and for our 20 years with the<br />

Boston Design Guide. We look forward to serving your design and painting needs, as well as<br />

our community, for many years to come.<br />
