Avenue of escape

The boutique hotel, and the short-lived feeling of escape it evokes, was the inspiration behind the design of this contemporary Cambridge condo.

“The transformation of these spaces — regarding the project as a whole — required that they perform double-duty: offer the hospitality and comfort of a guest sojourn while maintaining the familiarity and warmth of family living,” said Craig Tevolitz, principal and owner of Boston-based Platemark Design.

“Custom furnishings and casual elements round out the space. And the gentle layering of various materials, textures, and colors provides the makings for a welcome overstayed.”

With a patio area overlooking Memorial Drive and the Charles River, who would want to leave?

THE WALL COLOR

This color was custom blended using Sherwin-Williamspaint. “The neutral wall color allows for the keen punctuation of the furnishings and artwork,” the designer, Craig Tevolitz, said.

THE ARTWORK

A screen print of “Mick Jagger” (1975, No. 10/250) by Andy Warhol on arches aquarelle, this piece boasts the Rolling Stones frontman’s signature and the date in red felt pen.

THE TABLE

The piece was custom-made out of walnut with an ebony stain. “It maintains a contemporary silhouette while remaining solid and bold,” Tevolitz said.

THE CHAIRS

Clad in a durable F. Schumacher & Co. fabric called “Corsica Weave,” these seats are by Artistic Frame.

THE AREA RUG

Hand-knotted, this custom all-wool rug is by Patterson, Flynn & Martin.

THE BOWL

“We incorporated this piece from the client’s collection of pottery, and it relates splendidly to the tribal-style area rug and in contrast to the more contemporary furnishings,” Tevolitz said.
