When Isabella visited Italy, she knew she wanted her Museum to be modeled on a 15th century palazzo. By having the exterior facades turned inward around a central courtyard, she was able to blend the outdoors with the indoors—the best of both worlds!

On the Market: A Princessy Pad in Back Bay

376 Marlborough Street #4, Back Bay

    On the Market: A Princessy Pad in Back Bay
    This itty bitty studio maximizes all of its 320 square feet. Some days, the brownstones of Back Bay feel more like castles than townhouses. That's certainly the case for this condo tucked inside a grand building on Marlborough Street. It's fit for a princess, thanks to its sparkling chandelier, fireplace, rose-colored accents, and pastel finishes.
