• WEST END :: THE REVEAL

    This reveal has been a long time coming.  Not because it was only just installed, but because Luxe & Lucid was tied up in a parallel universe after we moved the Huntley & Co. website to another platform.  The technical side of small business is the gift that keeps on giving.  So we thank you for your patience, and without further ado, we reveal our West End project installation! * * * Making it Move-In Ready ——————————————————— Obviously before our clients can move in, we have to install carpet, light fixtures, wallcovering and window treatments.  Then, with our backdrop complete, our team is ready to bring in the furniture and…

    Whatchu Lookin At?

    Vicente Wolf published a book sometime back called ‘Learning to See’.  I have always thought that was such a meaningful title.  Seeing (and looking, fundamentally) is at the heart of a creative person.  What drives artistic and design-minded individuals is a desire to seek out and study what’s interesting, beautiful and/or weird about the stuff of the world. I’m no exception; I never stop culling the visual data around me.  And I have no shame when it comes to capturing what I see on film.  I’ll lie down on the sidewalk or crawl in the dirt if I see something worth photographing.  Inspiration for my designs can be found in all kinds of places: museums, parks or city…

  • 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…

  • The Floors Beneath our Feet

    Like a painter preps his canvas, a good designer attends to the bones of a room before honing in on its decorative elements.  We make strategic shifts in proportion, tone, and detail, both subtle and grandiose, when thoughtfully designing a space.  A beautiful wood floor is one such essential element that has the power to really make our rooms sing.  We’re always told to “look up” or “look forward”, as a kind of mantra to mindfulness, happiness and all things good.  Well, I say “look down” because there’s beauty and inspiration to be had at your feet!         Our design studio becomes a laboratory for deep diving, where…
