This is a photo heavy post today so get comfortable first. Jessika Goranson Lewand is the owner of Holiday Boutique in Beacon Hill, Boston. She opened her shop in 2002, it focuses on smaller design house and one of a kind handmade items. This is a tour of her home she shares with her husband and newborn twins. They bought the home in 2010 but lived in Manhattan over two years. They have just returned to their home in Concord, Massachusetts a little over a year ago.
Jessika writes, “I’ve always loved decorating since I was a kid. My childhood bedrooms were always important to me and my mom went to great lengths to help me decorate them. I’ve tortured her with wallpaper, upholstery and drapery projects since I was twelve. In college, my dorm room had custom curtains, my antique hope chest and was the “tour stop” dorm room for prospective students on campus. Ha! For some reason I’ve always “cared”.”
It’s obvious Jessika was born with a talent for decorating. Talent runs through the family genes as her mother’s talent for making custom window treatments is obvious. She made most of them hanging in Jessika’s home.
Looking into Jessika’s living room, we see it is so pretty in pink and blue.
There is lots of layering with pretty pillows, drapes and rugs.
The room is for entertaining and where they enjoy their piano. They are remodeling their fireplace to a more traditional look and will be enjoying the newly added gas feature on it.
There are five bedrooms in the home.
The dining room with grey walls and creme curtains.
Her husband is English and many pieces were shipped over including the green chaise.
May I present Louisa May, a Maine coon, also called Lulu for short. Lulu is enjoying the tv room.
Jessika’s kitchen in white, stainless and black. I love the wood countertop on the island.
The antique hutch which resides in the kitchen was a gift from her husband.
Jessika enjoys antiques in utilitarian places.
Wonderful tub in the master bath.
Beautiful wallpaper in the master bath and bedroom. Jessika recovered the master bedroom headboard, using a silk taffeta curtain panel as she couldn’t find the perfect color/pattern in fabric form.
The twins pretty nursery.
The twins have a well appointed changing area.
A peek into the corner of the nursery.
This was the nursery before it was a nursery, a pretty guest bedroom with wallpaper depicting European city landmarks.
Guest bedroom in green and pink.
Guest bedroom in pink and cream.
They really do have grapes growing!
They love the screened in porch that is original to the house.
Another view from the porch.
I believe the kitty, Louisa May, approves of the porch.
Their property includes two acres of field and frontage to a natural pond. They are putting in a dock this summer.
