Northern Virginia Elegant Living Space

Northern Virginia Elegant Living Space

This open living space demonstrates how designing to age-in-place doesn’t mean sacraficing on design. While this first floor is completely accessible, the furniture, rugs, and custom cabinetry create a feeling of elegance and sophistication. Spaces are delineated with custom cabinets, which serve as room partitions. Rugs also are spotlighted in this design, helping define both the dining and living areas. The back cabinet wall of the kitchen neatly conceals the mudroom and pantry located behind the kitchen and service areas. The end result? A wonderful combination of open space with a sense of place.

Alexandria Open Plan With View

Alexandria Open Plan With View

One of the objectives with this new home design in Alexandria was taking advantage of the wooded views. The open living space runs along the back of the house, providing expansive views of the woods and wildlife. The soothing tones of the custom rugs combine with the different wood textures and finishes to create a tranquil setting without competing with the views. The artwork supports the palette, as do the neutral upholstery fabrics and accents. PakLiving Room 1 WEB Pak DR Looking into LR...

Colorful Northwest DC Contemporary

Colorful Northwest DC Contemporary

Sometimes furniture—not walls—needs to define an open space. Such was the case in this DC living room with a 25-foot high wall of windows overlooking Rock Creek Park. In order to create a sense of place, the rug and seating configuration defines the space. Adjacent spaces pick up on the color and lines of the main living area. We had a lot of fun with this color-loving client by incorporating custom rugs, bright upholstery fabrics, and reverse gilded glass on the fireplace.   Schonfeld Dining Room Schonfeld Fireplace Schonfeld Living Room 2 Schonfeld Living Room Schonfeld Music Room...

California Contemporary

California Contemporary

This contemporary family room is a study in whites with color contrast. Although the color palette is quite simple, it provides a rich combination of textures from the chenille sectional upholstery to the glossy paint finish on the cabinets. The small amount of strong color from the artwork, accent wall, and pillows presents a vibrant exclamation point that gives this room interest and life....

Alexandria Garden Room

Alexandria Garden Room

This lovely garden room was a joy to design. How could you resist bringing the outside in and taking full advantage of the views? Pulling the main furniture off the perimeter helped define the dining and seating areas. Botanical prints on the sofas coordinate with the rug, without competing with the view. We used rattan and distressed wood finishes on casegoods to dress down this room, while keeping the traditional & formal feel of the...

New Take on Traditional Living Room

New Take on Traditional Living Room

In this Bethesda living room, the circulation pattern and corner fireplace posed a challenge to furniture placement. In order to create a living space where one could enjoy the fireplace and not have a main circulation route in front of the sofa, it made sense to angle the seating grouping. We accentuated the angle with a custom striped rug, which also grounded the furniture grouping and emphasized the relationship to the angled...

Bungalow Beauty

Bungalow Beauty

The challenge of this Northwest DC design was to integrate two useful living spaces (formerly the living and dining rooms) without feeling like the front room was simply a large walk-through foyer. By creating a smaller reading area in front of the fireplace and a larger living room beyond, both spaces have a useful function. Colors, fabrics and rugs are integrated, but stand alone in their separate spaces. Berger-Nager-LR1-RT...
