#BUILDHERUP MAY | SAMANTHA STUMPO, NEWBROOK REALTY GROUP

We are proud to introduce this month’s #BuildHerUp nomination, Samantha Stumpo. Sweet Sammy is not only one of the world’s most genuine beautiful humans, but simultaneously, she dominates the worlds in which she was born and bred, both real estate & construction. With no shortage of experience, Samantha has been working alongside her iconic mom since her teenage years. Cindy Stumpo is one of Boston’s most well-known woman builders, also known for her HGTV Show “Tough As Nails”. Holy apprenticeship, it’s no wonder Sammy is a force to be reckoned with! 

This beauty has since created a path of her own as the owner and founder of Newbrook Realty Group, specializing in luxury real estate. Samantha’s a powerful woman taking her career to new levels with the strength her mama gave her!

Together, Samantha & Cindy co-host the “Cindy Stumpo is Tough as Nails” radio show. Check them out sometime.

#COCOINSPO | TUMBLED STONE TILE

The pandemic brought on a need for sentiment, escapism, and comfort, so in came cottagecore, the trend that brought back fond memories of visiting your grandparents or taking a drive to the country surrounded by fields and nature. The world needed a safety net, which turned to when a simpler time existed. Cottagecore concentrates on a neutral palette, soft, muted tones, and draws from country life— picket fences, homegrown veggies, botanical elements, and linens!

This #CoCoInspo feature focuses on the tumbled stone floors of the country cottage. Typically used for outdoor spaces, these designers brought them indoors to create an organic aesthetic that encourages a healthy and relaxed lifestyle and a grounding effect of being close to nature.

With its traditional feel and neutral tone, the tumbled stone can easily be balanced with the modern finishes we know and love. It’s all about the balance, people! The time-worn look of these tiles brings warmth and charm to the stone-effect porcelain, a perfect balance for modern and traditional settings.

Broadway #4 Kitchen | Designs By Erica

With vision, determination, collaboration, and a little bit of magic, Erica overhauled this Somerville condo into a luxurious dream home! Bringing in some major drama from the statement wall with custom millwork painted in Hale Navy By Benjamin Moore, a chef’s kitchen that dazzles with classic white cabinets, and an open floor plan perfect for entertaining, this project was one of our favorite spaces to transform.

The gold accents bring a touch of elegance and enhance the clean white space of this room. 

While the white countertops and pearl backsplash keep the continuity of the space,  the industrial-style gooseneck faucet is a simple, yet eye-catching visual element.

FASHION MEETS INTERIOR | SAGE GREEN

Green is a color that can evoke powerful emotions of abundance and is associated with refreshment and peace, rest and security. When you think of green, you most likely think of money, nature, the environment, or even Kermit the Frog, not necessarily fashion nor interiors. But when used, it can create a tranquil space in your home or a classy outfit with a neutral pop of color. 

Green is everywhere. It’s the most common color in the natural world, and it is a dominant color in nature that makes you think of growth. Green evokes a feeling of abundance and is associated with refreshment, peace, rest, and security.

Green is the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy and is associated with harmony, freshness, and safety. The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye to view. Green is also associated with rebirth, especially in the spring when all the plants and flowers come back to life after the cold winter months.

The color green affects us physically and mentally in several different ways. Green is soothing, relaxing, and youthful, and it is a color that helps alleviate anxiety, depression, and nervousness. Green also brings with it a sense of hope, health, adventure, and renewal, as well as self-control and compassion.

Green is a natural choice in fashion and interior design because we humans are so used to seeing it everywhere. There were a lot of predictions that green would be the color of 2020. From Salvatore Ferragamo to Bella Hadid, green was a favorite on the runway that year and was a popular choice in streetwear.

Green is soothing to the eyes and is a preferred option for interior designers, given the availability of multiple shades. Designers use green with other calm and soft colors to create a restorative effect in any space.

If you are looking for a color that both stands out and evokes strong positive and calming emotions, then #gogreen!
