I enjoy working during the winter. I don't know about you guys, but I find myself forced to stay indoors most of the time. That doubles the time I spend with myself thinking about work. I met one of my clients today and she wants me to fully design her B&B townhouse in Silver Spring, MD by Feb 2nd. Let it snow!
Design Inspiration: The fireplace in the living room. It is a large, stunning, floor to ceiling stone fireplace with different shades of brown and gray; and hints of chestnut. We can focus on regional locals for room motifs.
The Bethesda Bachelor Pad
Happy New Year!!!!! We are right in the middle of an exciting design project: an entire home for a client. The house is a traditional four bedroom, three bath ranch on a large piece of property. We’ve named it The Bethesda Bachelor Pad.
Our client doesn’t want to worry about a thing. He wants to be able to move in and enjoy a fully designed and functioning home in every detail, right down to soaps in the bathroom. He would like us to to create a cozy “man cave” but at the same time have it be sophisticated and stylish for entertaining. To me the quintessential icon of the modern American bachelor is the Eames Chair and Lounge, so I suggested that we design around this.
Design Name: The Bethesda Bachelor Pad
The Challenge: To create a cozy “man cave” but at the same time have it be sophisticated and stylish for entertaining.
Design Mix: Mid-century Modern. Traditional. Contemporary.
Design Inspiration: The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman

The Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are furnishings made of molded plywood and leather, designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Herman Miller furniture company. They are officially titled Eames Lounge (670) and Ottoman (671) and were released in 1956 after years of development by designers. It was the first chair that the Eameses designed for a high-end market. Examples of these furnishings are part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art. - Source Wikipedia
