For this project, the client wanted the Lemanski team to renovate two function rooms inside a historic eleven-room bed & breakfast located in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. The project, inside The College Club of Boston, was centered on the renovation of the Percy-Dauber Drawing Room and the Members’ Room, both of which needed repainted walls, trim, and ceilings, refinished floors, and the addition of new cabinetry and pilasters. One of the key aspects of the job included the restoration and painting of the highly ornate woodwork and plaster that was originally installed in the Victorian brownstone in the late 1800’s. The Lemanski team had to use great care to avoid damaging the delicate wood trim and plaster and, to enhance the look of the intricate trim, a variation in colors was utilized for much of the trim work and what lay behind it to give the ornate trim more definition and to make it stand out more clearly. When the job was complete, the owners were particularly pleased about the transformation of the room, which had previously been painted in a monochrome scheme that lessened the impact of the original craftsmanship of the space.
