Next Generation Design- The Hot 50

Boston Home Spring 2010: Next Generation Design

Kara Butterfield knows drama: She started out designing theatrical sets. Attending to mood-setting details is key in interior design, too, she says. “Lighting is an important aspect, so I think of that in the early stage of a project.” After relocating to Boston from Australia, she joined forces with designer Lindsay Bentis to hold style clinics for would-be clients. While each maintains her own business for smaller projects, the duo works in tandem on grand overhauls. Sharing a cheery aesthetic and a knack for mixing high- and low-end, they’re livening up this town one room at a time.
