Haven In the Sky
How to decorate an airy residence 50 stories in the sky? Boston interior designer Tiffany LeBlanc carefully considered the homeowners’ lifestyle and taste to create a space that, even with its wide-open vistas, feels as intimate as a well-appointed home.
“In a high-rise residence like this, the sweeping views are amazing,” says LeBlanc, “The interior should be just as delightful, in a more distinctive way.”
Step off the high-speed elevator into the private entrance hall, and you’re greeted by a breezy marble mosaic and gilded wallpaper. Continuing inward reveals an entertainer’s dream: An expansive great room with a custom bronze fireplace to warm even the coldest New England winter night.
Venetian plaster throughout gives the home a suitably ethereal texture, while thoughtfully curated artwork, floor-to-ceiling mirrored panels and a petrified wood installation provides moments of drama. Custom flooring and millwork combine beauty with purpose-built practicality. In the kitchen, semiprecious stone countertops add a touch of wonder.
The residence boasts a richly textured master suite illuminated by a dazzling statement chandelier. Then there’s perhaps the most unique space: the bunk room, where floating loft beds and a hanging rattan chair await a chic slumber party.
Every room of this lofty perch provides something new to gaze down upon — sculls on the Charles River here, jets taking off from Logan there. The sophisticated and intentional details of the home itself makes looking inward just as rewarding.
