Room to Love

Bermuda decor in the Back Bay

Michael J Lee for The Boston Globe

THE CHANDELIER

The homeowners purchased this Webster & Company piece with the condo, and it was the jumping-off point for the room’s decor, according to the designer, Ana Donohue of Melrose-based Ana Donohue Interiors . The owners, who are from Bermuda, bought the Back Bay condo when their children were going to school in the region. Donohue said her clients “wanted Bermuda flair — which is very colorful, bright, and fresh feeling — in a more contemporary, urban setting.”

THE CHAIRS

These seats fromDuralee are clad in a Brunschwig & Fils fabric that mimics the circles in the chandelier. “The circle motif creates a rhythm, which makes it feel calm and cohesive,” Donohue said, noting the circular patinaed-brass mirrors and glass tabletop.

THE WALLCOVERING

With its bright grasscloth-like texture this wallpaper, “Bellport” from Cowtan & Tout, brings “more depth and more dimension to a small space,” Donohue said. That the color is reflected in the chair and throw pillow fabric only adds to the cohesiveness.

THE LAMPS

Purchased at Neiman Marcus, “these wooden lamps served a dual purpose by creating a strong organic element while also being functional,” Donohue said. “Stay away from matching wood tones or metals and focus on blending elements throughout to create a much more layered and interesting space.”
