Not your typical restoration: The Victorian townhouse in Boston that was recently renovated by architect Dell Mitchell and interior decorators Heather Wells and Bruce Fox was anything but. By the time the property was found by its current owners it had been completely gutted. There were no period details remaining to speak of its gloried past. All that remained was a pale stone façade.
The new owners, an art-collecting couple with four grown children, sought to accommodate their large, striking contemporary artworks in an inviting domestic setting. So Mitchell set about recreating the space as a dialogue between traditional and modern design, creating the feel that certain spaces had been restored and others added.
Mitchell’s architectural sleights of hand are buttressed by Wells and Fox’s vibrant materials, finishes, and furnishings. In the master bedroom the bed is outfitted with ANICHINI’s luxurious Raso Sateen Sheets in ivory and a hand loomed Amdo 4-Ply Cashmere Blanket in oatmeal. An Amdo Cashmere Throw rests upon a bedside chair.
