Boston Magazine hosted the Living in Style event this September at the luxurious penthouse of the FP3 in South Boston. I was intrigued by the concept: local stores style outfits inspired by rooms in the Boston Magazine Concept Home. The event was fabulous, great drinks and an amazing crowd. I was inspired by the interior design and architecture of Boston design firm, Hacin and Associates. I found myself shifting between design and fashion critiques throughout the evening. My favorite outfit is above. The three-piece Nom de Guerre wool suit was styled elegantly with plaid scarf sans tie by Boston boutique Stel's. Stel's also dressed the model below in a black sweater dress with feathered skirt. The model in the white dress with red sash was styled by Holiday Boutique in clothing from their line.
The images of the kitchen and dining area above give you more of an idea of the space. I loved the dark wood kitchen cabinetry and the use of a slab of stone by Gerrity Stone as a backslash.
In the master bedroom, a glam bachelorette pad with all the frills, sparkling chandelier, floral area rug, and glossy pink ceiling. South End boutique, Looc picked up on the bold yet feminine decor by dressing their girl in silk scarf, rocker vest and skinny jeans.
Uniform dressed the model in the boy's bedroom. The design was playful featuring a sleek aluminum trundle bed and lounge chair by Ligne Roset and the colorful custom puzzle rug by Dover. The room was outfitted for a sophisticated kid with cool graphics applied to the windows by Proverb, caged outdoor sconces and 1970s car catalog cut outs from David Hacin's childhood home. The fun toys and accessories were a nice touch. One thing is for sure, that is one lucky kid...heck, I'd live in that room.
I was digging the installations of wallpaper of New York based graphic designer and artist Aimee Wilder in the boy's bathroom and the powder room.
One of the most spectacular elements of the FP3 penthouse is the tiered terrace featuring stunning views of downtown Boston. Stil was inspired by the urban backdrop in the styling of their girl. I left the event thinking that these local retailers hit the mark pulled together some inspired ensembles based on the Concept Home's dynamic spaces.
