The first is a Beacon Hill oasis that belongs to my dear friend from college, Edith, her soon-to-be hubby, Warner, and their adorable Westie, Piper. Edith and Warner have brought traditional and modern together in a sun-drenched space full of personality and unique touches. Not only is Edith the sweetest and most loyal friend a girl could ask for, she is also impossibly stylish. She's the girl who introduced me to my first pair of designer jeans and who opened my eyes to a world beyond The Gap (I still love The Gap don't get me wrong). It's been so fun to watch as her style has grown and Edith and Warner certainly have a knack for making even a rented space feel like their own.
"A lot of the furniture we purchased years ago. The rest has been added along the way as we have moved and had adventures in different places. We have moved 9 times in the last 7 years between the 2 of us so really have it down at this point. We have only kept the things we really love. We also seem to have collected some wonderful pieces of art along the way. My dad is an artist and Warner's mom is an interior designer here in Boston so they have certainly helped us curate a lovely collection" - Edith

"The personalized coasters were a gift from Warner's sister and the elephant was a gift from my Mom when I graduated from Tufts." - Edith
"The painting above the fireplace is by Mikel Wintermantel and is the view from my grandparents house in Cohassett, a place very close to the heart." - Warner
"I've been longing after the work of Ariele Alasko for years. She makes such beautiful things but everything is always sold out. Warner has been trying for a long time to get me a wooden spoon and he surprised me with one earlier this year. I absolutely love it." - Edith
"A lot of the artwork in the apartment is my Dad's. The piece above the TV "Lady on Stairs" is one of my most prized possessions. My farther is a brilliant artist and took the photograph." - Edith

"Anyone that knows me well knows I love nothing more than sleeping in on a rainy day, having breakfast, and reading a book in bed. I could probably live in that bed and be happy. We have tons of fluffy pillows, the softest sheets in the world, and the most perfect puppy to keep us warm on cold Boston nights." - Edith
"The jewelry tree & jewelry box are both from Anthropology, the stones were collected from various places close to my heart (our lake house in Michigan, travels in Africa, Esalen in Big Sur etc). Warner carved the mini piper with his bare hands as a Christmas gift. The photograph on the wall was taken by Jack and is of my grandmother and the other is a photo of my mom and dad is from one of their first dates." - Edith
"A good man always carries a hanky."- Warner
Warner's extensive handkerchief collection next to a handmade gift from Edith. "I've just seen a face" by the Beatles is the couple's favorite song and the Westie imagery found around the apartment is of course inspired by their sweet dog, Piper.
"Our favorite thing to do is to walk Piper along the brick streets at night with the gas lamps blazing and beautiful windowboxes full of hydrangea. It's perfectly romantic and makes you feel transplanted to another century." -Edith
All photos are mine... photography skills = a work in progress ;)
