A red-saturated scheme makes a big statement in a Hingham home.
Often, people move from the city to the suburbs for a larger home. Not the case for Kristine Mullaney’s client, a cardiologist who downsized. “She headed to Hingham because she wanted a yard for her dog,” Mullaney says.
Mullaney had also decorated the client’s Commercial Wharf condo — more like a town house — where the rooms were larger in scale. In the Hingham cottage, they took down a wall “to open the kitchen to the water, but the den is narrow and completely enclosed,” Mullaney says. Designer and client embraced the tight space with a dramatic, red-saturated scheme. “We showed her safer colors, too,” the designer says. “She chose the boldest option.”
