This project quickly became known as my #Bethesdaglamfam.  Moving from a smaller home in DC to a large custom home in Bethesda with two young boys and a husband, we had to find a way to incorporate a little bit of glam here and there.  Working with the homeowners and builders I assisted in all selections and details throughout the construction process.  In addition to this, I space planned and designed the spaces above.  The outcome was a stunning and serene home fit to entertain but also to withstand the test of time with growing kids.  The excited first words spoken by the clients at the big reveal said it all - "Oh my gosh!  I can't believe this is our home!"

Interior design elements are perhaps one of the most important things to consider when building or renovating a home.  I had the great pleasure of working with two local entrepreneurs in the reconstruction and addition of an existing DC/ Chevy Chase rambler.  Using the shell of the original structure they created a new large, craftsman style home in which they asked me to help with all of the selections.  This included items such as crown molding, baseboard, cabinet styles and colors, light fixtures, built ins, shiplap details, faucets, vanities, floor stain, etc.  All of the special details that make this beautiful space so cozy.

Note:  The stunning furniture shown was staged by others.

After opening a very successful Macon Bistro in the Chevy Chase Arcade, restaurateur, Tony Brown decided they needed more space for overflow, as well as a space that would be suitable for private parties.  Thus the development and design of Magnolia Room, located just down the hall.  Beautiful design elements such as board and batten, reclaimed wood, faux leather and dark walnut floors sets the tone for the very intimate space.

City living is not always easy, smaller spaces can create a need for clever solutions. After 10 years of living with the original kitchen and bath, my client decided it was finally time for a facelift. His requests for the new space: maximum storage, a transitional look that will add value overall, new lighting (no fluorescent), using Carrera marble on the bathroom floor. He is beyond thrilled with the final result and functionality.
