DECORATING WITH STRENGTH AND SERENITY

This small apartment (600 square feet) featured in The Washington Examiner is the par excellence example of streamlined elegance. The svelte color palette and architectural furniture, not to mention the columns outside the window, have an Architectural Digest vibe (although, frankly, I doubt AD has ever featured a bathroom as small as this apartment). The space was designed by Michael Franck, of DC firm Franck and Lohsen Architects, with many decorative pieces chosen by the owner.

Check out the view! That's the masonic temple outside the windows. The owner collected the architectural drawings displayed on the left prior to moving into the apartment, but it's a fabulous combination. Design note:  coordinate your art with your view!

The kitchen. Notice we haven't moved very far - the couch/window view are still visible on the left. This is the perfect compact kitchen; it looks like a million bucks, and has fridge, dishwasher, sink, and stove/microwave in one unified piece of cabinetry. (Note the wonderful greek key detailing on the back of that chair.)

The dining table/library area (as seen from near the front window). Wonderful - simple doesn't mean simplistic. Both architect and resident must have incredible self-restraint! Bonus:  can you find the TV? 

A fuller view of the kitchen, dining, living room area, and front entry way. There's a lot going on under those low ceilings, but the effect is one of strength and calm.

Love this! It must be in the Chaselton apartment building which is now a condo. Some of the apartments have amazing views of the John Russell Pope designed temple.
