This Subway Café, a leap beyond the standard Subway, received a design award from the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers. Its upbeat, contemporary design was planned to complement the upscale office building it serves. Color, texture, art and comfortable seating help provide a pleasant break from office routine for breakfast or lunch. All this from what once was part of an underground parking garage.
This remodeled and enlarged master bath is as practical as it is beautiful. Custom cabinets provide ample storage and eliminate clutter. The roll-top garage “parks” the necessities out of sight. The limestone counters and abundant mirror is the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous blue glass of the vessel sinks. Blue accents repeat in the tiled shower and floor.
This luxury condo kitchen replaced a dated contemporary kitchen with a tiny island and an attached, dark pantry. The designer opened the pantry and added the angled peninsula to provide seating and allow placement of the sink where the client can converse with guests and family and enjoy the room’s panoramic view. Traditional styling and decorative lighting provide the backdrop for antique furnishings and collectibles.
Today’s master bedroom is multifunctional. This comfortable seating area is a quiet setting for conversation, reading, or watching the latest movie. The deep blue of the patterned sheer at the windows is repeated in decorative pillows and diamond accents in the custom carpet. The handsome halogen floor lamp adds clear light. Artful photographs of Washington, D.C. by Robin Kent provide the finishing touch. Visit www.photographybykent.comto see more photographs.
The Great Room furniture layout was planned so that the master of the house would be able to enjoy the view and the TV from his chair, while he works at the pop-up work surface in his ottoman. The room is also planned for ambience and entertaining. New furniture has been mixed with a few pieces from their previous home.
