Jessika Goranson Lewand

This is a photo heavy post today so get comfortable first.  Jessika Goranson Lewand is the owner of Holiday Boutique in Beacon Hill, Boston.   She opened her shop in 2002, it focuses on smaller design house and one of a kind handmade items. This is a tour of her home she shares with her husband and newborn twins. They bought the home in 2010 but lived in Manhattan over two years.  They have just returned to their home in Concord, Massachusetts a little over a year ago.

Jessika writes, "I've always loved decorating since I was a kid. My childhood bedrooms were always important to me and my mom went to great lengths to help me decorate them. I've tortured her with wallpaper, upholstery and drapery projects since I was twelve. In college, my dorm room had custom curtains, my antique hope chest and was the "tour stop" dorm room for prospective students on campus. Ha! For some reason I've always "cared"."

It's obvious Jessika was born with a talent for decorating.  Talent runs through the family genes as her mother's talent for making custom window treatments is obvious.  She made most of them hanging in Jessika's home.

Looking into Jessika's living room, we see it is so pretty in pink and blue.

There is lots of layering with pretty pillows, drapes and rugs.

The room is for entertaining and where they enjoy their piano.  They are remodeling their fireplace to a more traditional look and will be enjoying the newly added gas feature on it.

The antique hutch which resides in the kitchen was a gift from her husband.

Beautiful wallpaper in the master bath and bedroom. Jessika recovered the master bedroom headboard, using a silk taffeta curtain panel as she couldn't find the perfect color/pattern in fabric form.

This was the nursery before it was a nursery, a pretty guest bedroom with wallpaper depicting European city landmarks.

  1. Hi Jan, what a beautiful home, but that cat just steals the show! I'm a big fan of your blog, but very lax with comments. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.

    1. It is a beautiful home and I agree that kitty has a big personality! So kind of you to say, Bernice! Thank you for commenting!

  2. Tooooooooo cute!!! I LOVE the home, but I'm still laughing at the cat. They are all alike, Princess Posie likes to sit on the keyboard when I am practicing...what a pain in the gizzard, but so funny I can't even yell at her!!
    Thank you so much for sharing the pictures as I am not a member of instagram...
