A Fusion of Yesterday and Today at the HGTV Urban Oasis 2013
Last month the HGTV blog revealed the side story in the design of the HGTV Urban Oasis 2013. The furnishings, features and fixtures are sourced locally. This is sure to give this urban home a Boston feeling. The modern design will also include some elements from the past. This fusion will make this house authentic and unique. Boston is known for its rich history and it makes sense to incorporate it into the design of this urban home.
Jack Thomasson lead the team on a trip to Restoration Resources in Boston. They found a basket of late 19th-century draw pulls. These pulls came from a butler's pantry in a Boston residence. Thomasson referred to the find as diamonds in the rough. They had one polished and were pleased with the results. Thomasson said, “They are now pulls for our Urban Oasis cabinetry! I think they look happy there.”
