Inside the Magnificent Redesign of a Cambridge Condo
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.
