Project: Closing on Christmas Eve… From-scratch decorating in this gut-reno’d condo near Stanton Park and Union Station. Fun-minded client thinking of boutique hotels, with favorite colors of blues, reds and yellows.
Design Challenge: Making the most of the somewhat narrow, but long, layout that’s typical of DC row house spaces. As you can see, this client was open to some bolder and eclectic elements (e.g., the wallpaper(!) and sitting area accessories). But we still kept a dreamy calm though the use of softer colors in places like the kitchen and, especially, the bedroom.
Best Part: Working with the client to turn her new condo into a fun home. She trusted us completely, and we implemented the design plan just as we proposed. And — among other things — we all love the hedgehog lamp!
