After 20 years of serving as the backdrop for countless fond family memories, this Cambridge, Massachusetts, condo was feeling a little tired. Located in the condominium complex of famed architect and urban planner Moshe Safdie, the home had solid architectural bones but was in dire need of a contemporary revamp. Homepolish's Sonja Haviland came to the rescue, refreshing the space with an expertly curated mix of vintage and new furniture, modern hardware, and even a plumbing overhaul.
"What I really love about this project is that we worked with a lot of existing items," said Haviland. "Often it's easier to gut a space and start from scratch, but working with some of the original elements and giving them new life can be a creative challenge. A lot of the elements in the home were kept and we altered them just enough to give them new life." We're really feeling the neutral vibes.
This neutral living room is warm and cozy, thanks to the textural details and subtle hint of color via the dusty throw pillows.
This striking chandelier transforms the dining room from basic to beautiful.
Seeing as your bedroom should be dark anyway (science says so), this moody design nails both your health and your aesthetic.
