For our Ninth Street project, we worked closely with our clients to ensure that every corner has a purpose and everything has a home. Our goal was to provide creative storage solutions and to keep things within easy reach to make daily activities for this family of four ease-filled and fun. The result is a home that feels effortless, personal, and compelling.
In this Victorian stunner in Capitol Hill, our scope included a complete overhaul of the English basement, including adding a full bathroom, guest bedroom, and connecting stairs to the main level, a full kitchen renovation, and new flooring and furnishings throughout. Our goal was to elevate the home’s architectural details including original millwork, pocket doors, and fireplaces while creating a relaxed and effortless vibe for a young family of four.
In this historic farmhouse in Chevy Chase, Maryland, we furnished the entire main level of the home including the living room, study, dining room, and kitchen eating area for an empty nester who was ready for a fresh start in her home. We honored the simplicity of the farmhouse-style of the home and layered in feminine prints and shapes to reflect our client’s style. Throughout the design, we used several bespoke and vintage pieces to elevate the spaces for a unique and curated look.
Our U Street project gave us the unique opportunity to work on a modern townhome. For this renovation, we collaborated with Four Brothers Design + Build on the kitchen and bathroom spaces. To our delight, our client is a design enthusiast with a killer art collection. Because she loves to travel, we kept things simple and effortless to allow for minimal maintenance, while allowing her art and furnishings to take center stage.
Our team designed the dining room of this historic row home in Capitol Hill for a young family of four. As the physical center of the house, the dining room is the workhorse of the first floor. We enhanced the functionality and cozy factor of the space by adding a large custom banquette that lifts for storage. Note the oak trim detail on the lip of the bench. To create a visual break between the living and dining rooms, we incorporated a salvaged vintage cabinet into the design, which adds even more storage. We love using vintage and reusing whenever we can and we love how naturally this special piece fit into the space.
This 1920’s bungalow in the heart of Takoma Park, Maryland, was our very first top-to-bottom restoration project! We purchased this home and then renovated every square inch working to restore as many original details as possible while bringing it up to date for the young family to grow and enjoy. Take note of the original white oak floors, wood five-panel doors, brass and glass door hardware, and historically-restored windows.
For this craftsman-style bungalow in Hyattsville, Maryland, we oversaw a complete transformation of the living and dining room spaces including refinishing the hardwood floors, painting, installing new lighting, designing custom built-in bookshelves, and furnishing. Our clients are avid readers and nature lovers, so we brought in an array of natural greens to reflect the gardens outside their windows and bring the outdoors in.
In this charming 1940’s colonial in Silver Spring, Maryland, we designed a bedroom for our youngest client yet a special place to read, craft, sleep, and play. Her parents didn’t want the room to feel too feminine and wanted a space that would grow with her so we kept the foundation neutral and brought in art and decor that added colorful whimsy while keeping wall art easy to swap as she grows.
Initially this bathroom in Capitol Hill had an awkward and unusual layout so the the floor plan completely changed. The piece de resistance is the custom walnut vanity we designed to accommodate a double sink while working around a radiator in between. We chose a bold custom tile in the shower as an accent to incorporate color and pattern into the space yet honor our client’s budget by using it in a small area. Notice how we doubled the impact because you can see its reflection in the walnut mirrors above the vanity.
We partnered with GreenLoft to overhaul this outdoor patio in the Capitol Hill Historic District. The space underwent a complete makeover which included a new cedar fence, slate flooring, lighting, built-in grill and seating, and kid’s outdoor play kitchen.
