This Boston suburban home underwent a complete renovation from top-to-bottom, including the kitchen, lower level, and an addition. But those upgrades may not have been worth the investment if the closed-in, split-level staircase had remained untouched.


The “wow factor” starts the moment you walk through the front door into the spacious entryway and behold the sweeping staircase. Gleaming wood stairs ascend to the main level or descend to the lower level family area, office and in-law suite.

Stairways are usually unremarkable, but in this house the care and detail that went into the design have guests pausing in the entryway just to admire the craftsmanship. The skilled carpenters on staff at Divine handcrafted all of the custom millwork.


The Design+Build system gave these Metrowest homeowners access not just to an incredible designer, but to a team of contractors who ONLY work for Divine on one project at a time. Divine oversaw the entire process from start-to-finish, making sure that this whole-house renovation was on-time, on-budget, and stress-free for the homeowners.

"Mariette, our kitchen is beautiful, and those who have seen it just love the space, the feel and the use of color. From the beginning, it was a collaborative effort and Mariette was straightforward, honest and through the whole process, kept her work. She was also able to offer us a great product and excellent workmanship. We would highly recommend Divine and Mariette Barsoum to anyone."
