Anatomy of a Design:

The Back Bay House

At Catherine & McClure, we know that just as every client has a unique set of tastes, passions, and desires, so does every project call for a unique vision and guiding principle.

Below is a glimpse into our process for one such unique space.

behind the scenes of a home design process for a Boston Back Bay interior design project

Our endeavor for this living room was to preserve the natural and historic beauty, while creating a fresh, sophisticated, and comfortable space for our clients. The Sandra Jordan fabric on the dining benches guided the room's color palette.

This soft blue velvet couch, hand-made in North Carolina, is the ultimate in comfort and elegance.

This room had to function as both a living area and dining room, which we achieved with custom upholstered benches on either side of the dining table. We wanted the dining area to be a unique space, while allowing the d├ęcor of the entire room to be read as a cohesive story.

We wanted a piece of art that people would have a reaction to. The wolf is a real juxtaposition to this relaxed, cheerful room. It's unexpected.

Handcrafted and upholstered chairs add some rich depth to a bright room.
