Wellesley Cottage



A retired couple purchased this cozy cottage in Wellesley. The ground floor was refined and comfortable, but the upper level was dark and cramped—not ideal for the Master Suite.


Two dormers on the rear elevation allowed the ceilings to be raised and two small gabled dormers on the front elevation bring more light into these spaces.
A light, neutral palette of materials rely on texture for softness and variation. Textile accents and quality hardware complete this simple, yet refined renovation.
