Boston Magazine: A Wellesley Home Showcases Her Favorite Things

Last updated on August 1st, 2018 at 04:37 pm

When interior designer Nikki Dalrymple and her husband moved from Charlestown to this Wellesley home three years ago, she gained not only the space to explore her aesthetic, but also carte blanche to let her imagination roam free. That said, it had taken a while for the couple to find a house—she wanted a place she could gut-rehab, but he wanted something turnkey. This 1906 house was a great compromise, she says. Its layout worked for how their family lived; it simply needed a “cosmetic facelift.”

Dalrymple was so clear in her design approach that just a week after she and her husband closed the deal, they began renovations—redoing the electrical work, painting and wallpapering, and re-staining the floors from “a horrible yellow-orange tone” to a deep, rich walnut color. They also removed many of the home’s built-in cabinets and bookshelves to create a feeling of openness. “I wanted each room to feel like anyone could walk into it at any time and relax, and feel like they were in their own home,” Dalrymple says.
