The latest issue of Capitol File magazine dropped this week.
I’m thrilled to say that a Georgetown pied-a-terre designed by Huntley & Co.
is featured in its pages. Not only because it’s a big, glossy spread (yes, hello!),
but also because it’s one of my favorite projects in recent years. The residence was
a disaster with amazing potential – an 80s interior (think white laminate and pleated
valances – bleh!) in the heart of Georgetown with views of the canal. Luckily, this
hidden gem was purchased by my client, an Irish businessman with great taste and
the desire to take risks. Millwork modeled after English cabinetry, a state-of-the-art
German kitchen, bathrooms of marble and onyx, a custom wood parquet floor and
every luxurious textile known to man: velvet, shagreen, ostrich, cashmere and silk …
the end result was a rich and inviting space perfect for dramatic entertaining or quiet
nights at home. The consummate American landing pad for a European world traveler.
