Based in the greater Boston area, the duo is unique in that they bridge the gap between architect and decorator. They share a strong technical background, including the ability to read and prepare architectural drawings. The former producer of This Old House referred to their work as “heavy-duty interior design.” In organizing their firm, they have divided the labor between them into the “hard” and the “soft”. John designs and details the hard – interior architectural detailing, cabinet design, lighting, interior construction drawings, construction field supervision, and consultant coordination. Sally initiates and implements project concepts inclusive of interior design, furniture, decorative lighting, antiques, fabrics, and color and finish selections. The homes they design are elegant and sophisticated but always with a sense of comfort and livability. With backgrounds in commercial and corporate design as well as private residences the team specializes in a variety of project types.
