Eclectic Living & master
Either/Or was tasked with helping a lovely family move into their "dream home" in Capitol Hill DC. These NYC transplants met E/O with a few pieces of Craigslisted furniture and big wishlist. We worked together to breathe new life into a wonderfully historic home and are now happy to share it with you.
E/O gave this friendly home the perfect layout for entertaining downstairs. We removed some built in cabinets and shelving along with a fireplace that the family knew they'd never use. This new square footage allowed for a wonderful aqua sofa perched atop a terra cotta oriental rug. Such showstoppers!
This home now boasts the friendliest dining space on the block! We expanded doorways to allow for a more open floorpan and flow between living and dining spaces. Now the dining room benefits from beautiful natural light streaming from the living room windows. Either/Or added 5 foot high bead-board and molding to give the square room some height and direct all eye to the fun chandelier hung in the center of the room.
Here are a few quick snaps from their powder room off the dining room.
With a gregarious downstairs we gave the home the sanctuary it craved in the form of a peaceful master suite.
Built-ins and a new (Ikea) closet system were polished with brass hardware and a coat of paint to pull the rest of the master bedroom together.
