A Fun Project

Last week I had the chance to see the final product for a cool project I worked on last year. We were engaged by a development/ real estate company to consult on the floorplans, layouts and interior finishes for a condo building development in Medford called One St. Clare.  It was a great project because I always get SO frustrated when I tour new construction homes and condos and see mediocre “builder grade” finishes that went out of style in the 90’s.  It doesn’t cost more to use more classic, universally appealing finished- in some cases, it can even be cheaper! White subway tile in a shower costs a fraction of tumbled travertine, for example, and looks so much better!

I happen to think these units came out awesome!  The model unites were staged by Stephanie Morrison and they came out fantastic.

These professional shots show the colors better than the iPhone ones I tool below.  The walls were painted Sherwin Williams Eider White with Extra White trim and we selected a greyish pre-finished wood plank floor that came out incredible.

In the kitchens I selected white Shaker style cabinets with a marble backsplash and grey quartz counters.


Simple silver bar pulls on all cabinets looks clean and modern while the pendants offer a little hint of vintage style.


In the bathrooms we chose a marble large hexagon for the floor in the master bedroom baths, with a darker grey wall and more white simple cabinetry. The floors came out STUNNING in person


In the showers we used an elongated subway that looks so clean and modern.


In the bathrooms that serve the second bedrooms and main spaces we used a simple marble basketweave also apired with grey walls and white cabinetry.


The bedrooms all look sunny and bright, which is so inviting.



In the larger units there is a tv room/ office on the top floors that open to great deck spaces! It’s really awesome. :)


Here are some finishes like we picked for these units!
