A Loft Space Filled With Character

This Boston loft started life as a chocolate factory, so perhaps it is fitting that designer Steven Santosuosso of Homepolish was asked to make something sweet out of a few key ingredients. “This was the first home they owned together,” he says of his clients. “They brought a few elements from their individual places and asked me to help define their new style for the new home.”
It also makes the space, which is adjacent to the kitchen, command central for entertaining.

“I think they love the open space,” says Santosuosso. “Honestly, it is not how much square footage a space has — what matters is how it feels. You can have a small apartment that feesl like Versailles, and a grand room that seems cramped. In this home the lofty ceilings will never be occupied, but they make the room feel great.”
