Emily & Chris’ New Addition to the Home

Name: Emily & Chris
Location: Newburyport, Massachusetts

Entering this hundred plus year old home of Emily and Chris Masiello, the freshly painted walls pay homage to historic New England with their rich color palette but are only a backdrop in this modern landscape of furniture and design. Their playful use of color, pattern and material create interest in every room of this well-loved three story duplex.

The living room is bright with natural light and high-gloss white floating shelves that give rest to their collection of vessels, artwork and keepsakes. The dining room encompasses a love of texture and material. Upholstered wingback chairs, leather benches, oversized glass bottles and a single wooden lamp shade create a sense of harmony, all reflecting both the natural and the neutral.

The kitchen, newly renovated by the couple, sparkles and contrasts with white subway tiles, black granite countertops and brushed metal drawer pulls. Bold, graphic stripes wind around the walls of the upstairs hallway in two-tone green leading you to the newest addition of their home, the nursery. Fully stocked with Eames rocker and plenty of onesies for three week old Tyler Peter.
