As leaves change color and begin to decorate the ground around downtown Boston, our Park Plaza showroom has served as a beacon to clients, creating luxury interior designs from Charlestown and Cambridge to Copley Square.

Versace Home Collection Preview
Versace Home Collection Preview

In June, I was at Versace at Copley Place and joined General Manager Lauren Spadafore for a home collection preview. Guests enjoyed light bites and refreshments while seeing what materials and accessories will work best for thier next interior design project.

As families planned for Labor Day and children dreaded an eventual return to school, I provided interior design tips for the fall. That means putting away the bright pallatte of summer in exchange for warm colors, touches of nature and a layered approach.

Design Tips

My approach to design has remains the same since my time as president of the International Furnishings and Design Association. A commitment to providing clients a place to showcase their individual tastes and interior designs that benefit residents every day was rewarded as LuxPad named Chrisicos Interiors one of the 25 best Interior Designers in Massachusetts.

The honor was strengthened by reviews posted to social media. One client raved about how I crafted a new look insider her 200–year-old farmhouse in Charlestown.

Another client called on me again, this time to turn a “new condo into a welcoming refuge that is a comfortable as it is beautiful”. They were pleased how I utilized custom furniture and built-in storage to maximize the available space. They were excited to see the transformation of their “bland condo into a space we’re excited to come home”.

We didn’t travel far from our home at Park Plaza, bringing our studio decor to Saks Fifth Avenue for an evening of Fashion & Interior Design. Champagne was poured as patrons discovered this season’s fashion trends and explored the latest styles, designs and table settings for fall entertainment plans.

Italian silk pillows from Alexandra D. Foster were on display, as well as pop up home decor and custom items from Leron Linens of Manhattan.

Those same accessories are available in our design showroom. See for yourself on November 14 and 15 from 1 to 8 p.m. and enjoy a rare opportunity to meet Umane Paris designer Valerie Brun and discover her ‘Fab’ jewelry. Champagne and catering will be provided along with a chance to discuss fashion with the designer-founder of the Jewelry Maison.

Be sure to confirm your attendance by contacting our showroom. Julie Foley, Executive Assistant extraordinaire, is on hand at the studio three days a week. Our showroom’s doors are open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and by appointment.

As always, we are ready to take your vision for an amazing home and make it a reality.
