After living in their Tudor-style home in Wellesley, MA, a suburb of Boston, for a couple of years, the homeowners felt it was time to liven up the décor. Following a renovation that expanded the footprint of the house to accommodate their growing family, the homeowners brought in Boston area designer Dina Holland
to infuse the place with color, creativity, and distinction. With three young children living in the house, it was key that the aesthetic feel fun and un-fussy; although it needed to appeal to mom and dad, too, since the couple often hosts adults-only gatherings after the kids have gone to bed.
“My role was to layer in personality,” says Holland. “We kept the backdrop light and neutral and introduced color through textiles, pattern, and original art.”
