North Arlington Breakfront

North Arlington Breakfront

In this large North Arlington renovation, we were involved with all aspects of the design. When we couldn’t find the right china cabinet, the client asked us to design one. The result was a clean, classic take on a traditional breakfront that works beautifully with the custom rug and other interior details in the space.   Picture 077 Picture 119 Wolff DR...

Northwest DC Live Edge

Northwest DC Live Edge

Our very forward-thinking clients often allow us to experiment with really fantastic results. This cabinet design was part of a large condo renovation in Northwest DC. To add an organic element to the design, we used a “live edge” on the cabinet counter tops. We also used sliding shoji panels with grass cloth inserts instead of traditional doors to keep the design lighter in scale. This was a wonderful collaborative effort between designer, cabinet maker, and client.   Free Edge - Installed...

McLean Mega Storage

McLean Mega Storage

The challenge to this family room cabinet design was finding a place to store things you want to see, and things you don’t. We also needed to find a place for a TV without drawing too much attention to it. We designed a wall of custom cabinets to solve just about every storage dilemma. The built-in cabinets are divided into three sections, each serving a different purpose. Using vertical and horizontal elements to link them, establishes a very pleasing rhythm and continuity. We chose not to run the cabinets all the way to the ceiling, allowing us to maintain the scale and proportion of the room and provide additional display area for photographs.   Clarke Family Room Millwork 1 Clarke Family Room Millwork...

Alexandria Condo Combo

Alexandria Condo Combo

This was a fun project because the owner purchased the unit above her, thereby creating a two-story residence. This meant that she now had an entrance foyer and stair, which we were asked to design. Despite doubling the space, we still needed to find a use for every square inch. The entry foyer serves as a place to drop your keys or display books and artwork. We even found space under the stairs to store wine, and to charge your mobile device. An added bonus? The opportunity to design a custom stair railing.   McCord Entry Millwork McCord...

Cleveland Park Fireplace

Cleveland Park Fireplace

You find a lot of craftsman-style architecture and design details in Cleveland Park. Because of the extent of renovation in this project, we were able to rethink the fireplace design with an updated approach. Even though the living room is now open to the hallway behind, we created separation with columns, which flank the fireplace. Raku tiles are integrated into the design for this color loving client.   sarah purdy spi interior design- residence gordon kilner...

Chevy Chase Dressing Room

Chevy Chase Dressing Room

When the master bedroom in this Chevy Chase house was renovated, a very small bedroom became even smaller. This presented the perfect opportunity to create a dressing area loaded with storage for clothes, shoes, accessories. We were even able to incorporate a window seat into the design with hinged storage under the seat cushion for off season items.   HG Dressing 1 Howe-Goldstein Dressing Room...

North Arlington Bookcases

North Arlington Bookcases

Details are often the difference between eye-catching and mundane. In this bookcase design, we created a pocket door within the design, which increased the amount of storage space, and integrated the bookcases with the room entrance. We created a simplified column design in the face frame, providing a nice surprise as your eye travels up.   Millwork detail...
