Their home design brings a bit of Prague and a hint of Delhi to Revere’s new build

“We love warm, layered looks in rich golds,” says Fulmer. “The other prefers a minimalist approach that skews more European.” However, they might agree that the furniture profiles would be light and airy; nor wanted pieces with heavy wooden bases.

Designer Trevor Fulmer opted for an organically shaped cowhide rug under the dining table because the room couldn’t support a large rectangular or circular rug. Its jagged lines help soften the harshly contoured space. On the wall, the framed cut-out paper artwork was a HomeGoods find.Jared Kuzia

To bring the lobby’s 16-foot high ceilings down to a human scale, Fulmer hung a multi-pendant jute chandelier that fills the space without feeling heavy. A stylish vignette dresses the wall along the stairs and provides a drop-off point for mail and keys. It also encapsulates the overall style of the house – modern and warm – with a console table crafted from a rich, multi-toned slab of wood on a thin, geometric metal base.

A padded bench sits in front of the console, delineating the entrance to the living room. “It’s a shoeless household,” says Fulmer. “The bench provides a comfortable place to take off your shoes and can also be used for seating in the living room.”

Hemp wallcovering draws the eye into the living space and injects texture into what was essentially an all-white box. A swirling rug sets the color palette and, along with the rounded silhouettes of the sofa, womb chairs, and coffee tables, helps soften the boxy lines.

Rather than dominating with only rich hues, Fulmer struck a balance by including cool grays. Like the stark concrete side tables and asymmetrical chandelier, the counterintuitive decision brings nuance and depth. “Without juxtaposition, the room would appear flat,” explains the designer. “Now he feels organized.”

An open library creates a separation between the living space and the kitchen. The Indian owner is used to more privacy between these areas. While he didn’t want to completely close off the kitchen, he also didn’t want to give guests a view of the fridge. The solution works well because it also gives the couple a place to display books, plants, and photos.

Next to the kitchen, Fulmer anchored the dining room with striking lighting. Nine frosted glass orbs hang at varying heights above a round pedestal table with a herringbone top and burnished metal base. The padded, angled seats of the chairs are perched on pointed metal legs. “The mix of clean lines, some round and some straight, with luxurious materials in warm neutral tones satisfied both clients,” says Fulmer.

Fulmer has furnished the room to the right of the entrance as a cozy retreat. The concept was particularly important to the owner from the Czech Republic, who grew up around a fireplace with his family. The space offers the couple a private space away from the many guests they host from overseas. Along with the deep sofa, casual lounge chairs, and plush leather ottoman, an oversized chair nestles on a sheepskin rug in the bay window reading nook.

The owners, who travel a lot for their work, appreciate the calm in which they return. “We set everything up while they were in Prague,” Fulmer recalls. “When they walked through the door, they couldn’t believe their eyes and immediately FaceTimed their parents to share every detail.”
