Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


It’s always inspiring to find older homes that have an updated look that’s in total harmony with their historic architecture. This elegant Georgian home located in West Newton Hill, Massachusetts was originally built in 1917 for John W. Weeks, a Boston financier who went on to become a U.S. Senator and U.S. Secretary of War.

The home’s original architectural details include an elaborate 15-inch deep dentil soffit at the eaves, decorative leaded glass windows, custom marble windowsills, and a beautiful Monson slate roof. But the interiors did not match its grandeur and the architects from Meyer & Meyer Architects changed the layout of the house and designed two new additions to expand the living space for this family.

Having traditional Georgian architecture, it’s surprising to see the interiors, designed by Jennifer Palumbo, as they have a strong tendency for contemporary lines. Take for example the kitchen, where a vast of modern elements are found and it somehow perfectly works with its more traditional surroundings.

Although elegant and rich looking, this home belies stuffiness and pretension. Its beauty is found in its authentic design and architecture.


Elegant Georgian Home

This beautiful garage is a new addition, built by Meyer & Meyer Architects.


The windows and door gave a great starting point but the refreshing color and style are perfection. This space exudes happiness and elegance.

Front Door Details

Many of the decorative leaded glass windows and doors are originals to the house.

Living Room

Color was incorporated in this living room with furniture and decor. It feels bright and cheerful.


Tailored without being boring.

Dining Room

The dining room has a modern approach. The architectural details are added with millwork and arched doors.

The light fixtures “Venus Flower Capiz Pendant” are by Worlds Away . Pottery Barn has a similar, less expensive product.

Home Office

The home office has great built-ins and beautiful architectural details.

Kitchen Design

This kitchen, designed by Venegas & Company, is light and modern. Beautiful limestone tiles were used to bring texture on the beautiful alcove.

The range is a 48″ dual fuel range, DF486C, by Wolf and the pot filler is from Dornbracht, Tara 30 151 892.

Clean Lines

Interesting mix of wood: vertical grain walnut, painted cabinets and dark stained island.

Countertop is Caesarstone, “Concrete” finish.

Venegas & Company designed the cabinets, but they were custom made by Premier Custom Built.


The butcher block island is made of North American black walnut. It was made by Grothouse Lumber.

The stools are from Janus et cie.

Eating Area

The eating area feels calm and collected. To the left, you see the new family room.

Paint Color: “Realist Beige 6078” by Sherwin Williams is a similar color.

Family Room

The family room is a new addition to the house. I simply love the ceilings. Gorgeous!


An arched entry welcomes you to the master bedroom. Soothing decor.

Bathroom Design

This bathroom is dramatic and relaxing at the same time. Stunning free-standing bathtub.


My favorite kind of walk-in closet is just like this one; with plenty of built-ins to keep everything organized and out of sight.


The large loggia leads to a sunny patio and lush gardens.


Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

How are you feeling today? It’s raining and chilly here. Do you know those days that you wish you could stay in bed with a good book all day long? Oh, I miss having the time to do that.

Anyways… now I have to make some calls and get some work done.

Wishing you a very healthy and safe day! And thank you for stopping by! 🙂
