Stepping into a home designed by Boston-based interiors guru Gary McBournie is a little bit like embarking on your first day of vacation. The carefully selected vintage and antique furnishings, inspiring art and accessories, and light and bright palettes he favors are as charming and carefree as they are refined and sophisticated.
And it’s this delicate dichotomy and straddling of worlds that serves as a testament to the designer’s divine creativity. If you’re looking to extend a little bit of summer’s carefree vibe as fall begins to take hold, borrow a page from McBournie’s lookbook with the designer’s own favorites from The HighBoy.
