    DESIGNING WITH PASSION :: THE COLORS OF VALENTINE’S DAY

    I love the colors associated with Valentine’s Day.  Red, garnet, blush, pink, plum — they’re all so delicious and sexy.  This is a palette that seduces in design, fashion, and even nature.   I suggest that you soak in the gorgeous inspiration of our post today, especially if you are spending the holiday sans sig-other.  There is no balm for the soul like beauty.  Well, that and a really good bottle of pinot noir and dark chocolate.  HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!   ** Sources/links for the photos above can be found on our Pinterest page … along with other Valentine’s Day inspiration.

  • EDGEMOOR SUNROOM :: THE REVEAL!

    The Edgemoor sunroom has been installed!  Installation days are such a highlight for interior designers.  They represent the culmination of months of hard work, careful planning and patience.  Considering this project started in the summer of 2015, we were thrilled to see the room finally come to life.  So it is with great delight that we report that the room is even more beautiful than we expected.  We always have an idea of how an interior will look, but we can’t necessarily anticipate how it will feel.  Being in a space where the architecture, the decor and the surroundings truly sing makes all the trials and tribulations of the previous months disappear.  We’re thrilled and our clients are thrilled.…

  • EDGEMOOR SUNROOM :: PART II

    Our Edgemoor clients are long-time residents of Bethesda, a neighborhood of beautiful homes, large backyards, and gracious sidewalks.  A variety of architectural vernaculars decorate each tree-lined street thereby giving us license to explore a pastiche of design styles.  We devoted countless hours and many team meetings to perfecting the architectural and decorative intentions of their sunroom in order to craft a space with the perfect blend of traditional and modern styling.  It was especially relevant for us to carefully study how the new sunroom would meet and interact with the landscape, establishing a strong indoor/outdoor feel. — NEIGHBORHOOD VERNACULAR & INSPIRATION — The sunroom addition is quite modern and acts as a…

  • Chez Huntley – update 11/13

    I am happy to write that the public spaces of chez Huntley are more or less complete.  Hallelujah!  And while I would love to give my readers a comprehensive 360 degree tour … it aint’ gonna happen.  Apparently divulging too much about a project on one’s blog limits its exposure elsewhere, so I’ve learned.  When did design get so complicated?!  So alas another sneak peek will have to suffice.  Hopefully the pix are enough of a fix – enjoy!       — Chez Huntley Interior Details —                                         My home reflects my own personal vibe.  I love drama and a bit of sparkle, but I need natural…

  • Branded

      There is one question I receive more than any other from prospective clients, writers, editors, vendors and the public-at-large.  “What’s Your Style?”  Simple enough I suppose.  After all, most designers and novice decorators have a catch phrase … “edited elegance”, “shabby chic”, “retro glam”, etcetera.  The funny thing is that despite having worked as an interior designer for fifteen years and having my own firm for five, I’ve never been able to provide a nice neat answer to that all-important question.  I guess I found it difficult to sum up all of my professional passions and aspirations into a few choice words.  And perhaps subconsciously I realized that I…
