We invited four interior designers to share a room they recently designed and especially love. Our purpose is to inspire you as we showcase recent projects from designers in the greater Annapolis and Metro D.C. area. Curated by Robert Haywood.
Images of the interiors of an incredible new home we are just finishing in the mountains of Tennessee convey aesthetic truths we hold dear as we create new spaces for life in the twenty-first century. These rooms are viscerally and visibly connected to the world beyond the windows. They are simultaneously reverent to the past and relevant to the present. And most importantly, they are comfortably and graciously appointed for everyday life.

I’ve always loved the juxtaposition of modern furniture against a traditional backdrop, and this client gave me the freedom to play in that arena. Here we added traditional millwork to their 10-foot ceilings and painted the room a bright white to create the perfect canvas. I had a Parsons table made by a local woodworker to ground this space and to highlight the chairs covered in an unexpected French blue velvet with black piping. The simplicity of these pieces then shows off the undulating black metal chandelier. I adore this space so much because when you walk by this room, you feel so starstruck by so many quiet pieces that speak volumes to you.

I love that this family of seven uses the entire kitchen and breakfast room for multiple functions, not just for gathering at mealtimes. I repurposed the banquette and Vaughan chandelier from their previous home, which I also designed, into their new breakfast room, where the green accents blend beautifully with the hues in the kitchen. The kitchen’s counter stools in Thibaut fabric and Roman shades featuring Kravet fabric and Romo trim complement the two blue islands and white cabinetry along the perimeter. A signature element is the pale blue ceiling, which is illuminated by large circa lighting pendants. In addition, all seating is specially treated to resist stains, ideal for a large family.

Sometimes, the smallest spaces can have the biggest impact! The focal point of this room is a fabulous porthole cabinet by BOBO Intriguing Objects, which is flanked by Visual Comfort brass sconces and glossy shiplap as the backdrop. The cabinetry, in an “automotive sheen,” is Sherwin Williams Country Squire. The flush brass ring pulls, the brass detailing around the marble countertop, the waterworks ship wheel faucet, and the teak cutting board atop the sink enhance the nautical vibe. Clients are ready to entertain in this delightful waterfront space!
