Last Friday I was granted entry into unit 1409 at Troy Boston, a new, “green,” luxury rental building in Boston’s artsy SoWa neighborhood. The apartment looks great; so sunny, with very appealing finishes, like cerused oak and lacquer cabinets, a white oak wood floor, and the best, a concrete ceiling. You might recall my post on creating the charcoal and blush color palette.
I thought I had so much stuff, but when I unpacked there was hardly anything. It didn’t even look like there’d be enough artwork.
A pile of textiles from H&M. The pillows are knockoff of a design by Hay. The pink throw is deliciously cozy.
Heather McGrath’s Icelandic landscape printed on metal looks fantastic on the plywood divider.
Accessories: Canister with wood lid, wood trinket boxes with glass lids, copper sphere candle, fancy tonic water, and a print I made.
More H&M accessories. Rose gold & glass trinket boxes ($5 octagonal knock-offs of those little glass boxes by Iittala) and copper colored candle holders (also on sale for $5) that remind me of a Tom Dixon design.
All my bedding options, laid out. Charcoal and blush linen sheets and cushion covers from H&M, textural charcoal throw, velvet throw pillow and lots of pillow inserts from Ikea and a sweater knit blanket, plus even more gray sheets from Target. Sofa and rug on loan from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams in Boston.
More pictures soon.
