Ever find yourself pacing a furniture showroom in search of the perfect settee, to no avail?
It seems that our discerning tastes can often run contrary to actual design execution, and it?s often difficult to envision what?s available inside our home.
Enter Blue Print, a gorgeous Fairmount Street manse that may forever conquer your fear of flying design-blind. Housed within this plush home is an antiques treasure trove, all perfectly polished and positioned to look like a best-case domestic scenario.
The store?s blueprint, if you will, favors pops of color amid cream-colored walls. Multiple vignettes match traditional chairs, marble coffee tables and refined light fixtures (like the Textured Wheat lamp, $280) with seemingly impromptu updates such as vibrant glass bottles and modern art. We?re especially taken with the random-but-playful Albert Einstein portraits by artist Brenda Bogart (from $350).
When five friends opened the business a couple of years ago, their goal was to give shelter to premium antiques they found on trips to England and France.
All of which brings new meaning to the phrase ?welcome home.?
