The work was quick and painless, within budget and reviewed specifically at each stage so there were no surprises. Excellent effort with small adjustments after major work was complete and real attention to detail throughout. It could not have been done better.

Yours, Mine and Ours
This beautiful project completed in Bethesda, MD is the third project we've done for our long time client, the first for the newlyweds uniting 'yours, mine and ours' into their lovely newly built home.
Our first step was to evaluate all of their current furnishings and window treatments for creative re-use, combining old and new. We filled in the blanks with beautiful new furnishings to create a gracious living room with an elegant over-sized area rug, comfortable lounge furniture along with leather, glass and silver leaf occasional tables. Glass lamps, passed down through the generations, frame the back of the sofa on the custom console table. The completed dining room is the perfect example of our clients creating their new style together: his dining table, her upholstered chairs, their new chandelier – stunning combination.
For her home office she chose a textured leather covered desk, a re-imagined curved back wing chair and silver leaf/glass nesting tables. A custom strie wool area rug and lovely patterned and textural floor to ceiling window treatments, roman shades, plantation shutters in the first floor rooms completed the details.
The home’s four bedrooms and stair landings combined many of the couples existing family furniture, art pieces and reworked custom drapery as well as additions of new bedding and accessories. The basement was transformed into a cozy and stylish family room setting with leather ottoman/bronze accents, large wood tray with Asian glazed ceramics and swivel lounge chairs. Ikat patterned pillows and a crackled glaze table lamp accented the room. The client's travel adventures were highlighted with a photo gallery wall.
Lots of details, great rugs, thoughtfully chosen materials, talented craftspeople - all create happy clients and a happy home.
