We are honored to have played a small part in the history of the iconic home of Isabella Stewart Gardener. We worked thoughtfully to bring a layer of contemporary chic while honoring the historic features of the summer estate.
Elms Interior Design Interview with 1st Dibs Introspective Magazine
Thank you 1st Dibs for our feature in Designers To Watch where you can catch a glimpse of what inspires our contemporary transformations of Historic New England Homes.
Dee Elms on her Dream Project
“For me, it’s the house and the client. I love it when clients have a classic, beautiful envelope and are willing to mix up the interiors with more contemporary pieces. I think that’s the most beautiful combination. When it’s done well and respectfully, it’s top notch.”
Elms Interior Design Featured in November/December 2021 Issue of New England Home
There is no greater compliment than when a repeat client brings you a new project. After completing their Beacon Hill pied-a-terre (Marlborough Street Residence) we were hired to update their suburban family home (Lexington Residence). Contemporary artwork, furnishings, and a fresh color palette revitalized the traditional architectural details to create a new and welcoming vibe.
Elms Interior Design Featured in 25th Anniversary Issue of Boston Design Guide
We are honored to be featured in Boston Design Guide’s 25th Anniversary issue, for a chic residence set in a converted 19th century building overlooking the Charles River (Beacon Street Brownstone). The high ceilings and classic wood paneling inspired a contemporary Parisian vibe, accented with handmade pieces and glass pendants by French artisans.

Elms Interior Design featured in November/December 2018 issue of New England Home
It’s always exciting to see our work featured in print, but to see the same project featured twice in two major publications is such an honor!
In this New England Home feature, we get to hear from our client, who details how he collaborated with Elms Interior Design to transform his very traditional Boston brownstone into something bold, comfortable, and above all, a place his kids and their friends think is pretty cool.
Elms Interior Design featured in Summer 2018 issue of Boston Home
What a thrill to see our Marlborough Street Project featured in the summer 2018 issue of Boston Home!
This 3,100 sq. ft. Back Bay townhouse was purchased as a second home by our clients – a young family from the suburbs looking to plant roots in the city.
What started as a “very vanilla” apartment, became a ripe opportunity for the Elms Interior Design team to liven things up!
With a palette of greys, silvers, and creams, finished with intricate custom details, and luxe furnishings, we transformed this two-story home into a perfect urban oasis for this family of five.
