A “Doily-Free” Victorian

Sharing loves of history, architecture, and the Dorchester area of Boston, clients Megan and Paul purchased a Victorian mansion originally designed by the City Architect in the late 1880s. The only problem? The previous owners long-nursed a love of chintzy chandeliers, fussy window treatments, and doilies. When it came to move-in day, the couple struggled to figure out how to make the home their own.
