Summer Solariums

June 02, 2017

Sunshine is abundant in these solariums, but so is AC.  These are comfortable, casual spaces to host a lunch, or to simply relax with a book.  The exterior of the Del Monte sun room is detailed with iron ionic engaged columns and flanked by a parterre garden to match its French 18th century design.  At the Chevy Chase Residence, natural light glints off a terracotta tile floor and a beautifully crafted chandelier adds an air of elegance.  The solarium at the Longwood Residence exudes farmhouse charm, with a painted wood floor and wicker furniture.

Gorgeous Greens

March 31, 2017

Green, the color of spring, lends a natural feel to a transitional space, like the entryway at the South Boulevard addition.  It is also an excellent way to bring the outdoors in.  Green can be balanced by texture and warm colors, like the reds and oranges of the rug in the Table Rock Ranch mudroom, to keep a space from becoming too cold in character.  The crispness of a good green makes the color particularly popular in kitchens, where a fresh atmosphere is key for inspired cooking.
