Exposed Brick: Check. High Ceilings:Check. Row House Charm: Check.
Location: South End — Boston, Massachusetts
My little home on Dartmouth Street in Boston is my favorite place on Earth. It is about 550 square feet on the parlor level of a brick row house. Being a corner building I have windows on three sides which makes the snug space feel a bit grand. The ceilings are about 10 feet and have one big exposed brick wall in the living/dining room.
My style is simple, a mix of affordable staples and found items through the years. It’s a little artsy, a little vintage-y with a sprinkling of IKEA. My friends and I have enjoyed many hours of conversation and red wine at my steel dining table that I purchased from a store closing in Austin,Texas 15 years ago. The little concrete donkey by the couch I purchased from a shop in Canton, Connecticut during Barack Obama’s first campaign. He’s a good luck charm. I think I’m most proud of my little hardware store wall sconces which I put together years ago for about $1.50 a piece, I alternate between flowers and candles and they always get rave reviews.
Thanks, Christa !
