While browsing Architectural Digest for some inspiration for a school project, I came across this insane Boston townhouse designed by Thad Hayes. The current owners actually purchased two townhomes which they converted into one, and spent thirteen years buying each individual unit to do so. The first photograph of the formal entry immediately caught my eye because of the incredible, historic paneling:

So this is definitely on my list of favorite townhouses. I love the mix of everything – different eras of furniture, different types of hardware, different textures and materials, and especially the mix of the plain grain and white painted paneling. These contrasts creates a home that is not only unique, but also personal and intimate, which is essential in a home.
