Cambridge House in The Boston Globe Magazine


The 3,110-square-foot house was in decent shape but needed warmth and better flow. Bestor, who refers to her style as “informal modernism,” enhanced what was there by adding color and texture. “We’re good at bridging the character of historical and modern,” she says. “We respect old, traditional details, then modernize them with color.” The exterior, now a dark, moody blue-black hue punctuated by a vibrant red door, exemplifies her approach.
