A Beacon Hill Beauty

Nina Farmer

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! While this holiday is the Irish American equivalent of Cinco de Mayo (an excuse to drink!), I had to give a little nod by way of Nina Farmer’s beautiful home. Now, I am not sure if Nina is of Irish descent, but her home is in Boston’s Beacon Hill neighborhood and Boston is the most proudly Irish American city of all. If this sophisticated townhouse looks familiar, it is because it was previously published in House Beautiful. One Kings Lane recently gave readers an updated tour. I love that Nina’s home embodies the neo-traditional style I love so much. The spaces are filled with traditional silhouettes, but she mindfully mixes in modern furnishings and art to create a chic, interesting composition. While the spaces are mostly neutral, she employs color in a striking way from the gray lacquered walls in the dining room to the pops of yellow in the master bedroom. The home is chic and elegant, yet perfect for the lifestyle of a young family. Every room in the home is classic in its aesthetic, but includes interesting elements that truly make it special.

  1. My! It’s just the perfect mix of traditional and contemporary. Not so modern that it’s cold or will be out of style in a few years. Not so traditional that it’s stuffy. Just right. Love the living room (that chandelier! the curtains!), the kitchen (those rich wood cabinets mixed with white ones! the desk!), the dining room (that ceiling!!!!!). Wow.

  2. This is truly one of my favorite designs in the blogosphere. The attention to detail is amazing. I could move right in and not change a thing!
