After: To get a more spacious feeling on the first floor, they removed the wall between the hallway and the rooms, and opened up the living room, dining room and kitchen to one another. “In a typical D.C. row house, these rooms are sometimes so narrow, you feel like you can spread out your arms and touch the opposite walls,” Chulew says. This house wasn’t quite that narrow, but opening up the walls made each space feel much roomier. Removing the load-bearing walls required the installation of a large beam, which was well worth the effort. Throughout the first level, the floors were too damaged to preserve, so Chulew replaced them with new oak flooring sanded and stained to match the original floors on the upper stories.Well-Balanced Living RoomIn the living room, the architectural details of the room remained traditional, with a new painted wood fireplace mantel and soapstone surround. “This soapstone is the perfect balance of old and new — it is an appropriate historic material, while its lighter color is fresh,” Chulew says. She repeated it on the new media cabinet counters. She preserved the original colorful stained-glass windows and gave them new plantation blinds for privacy from the street. New baseboards and coved crown molding bring in more traditional millwork. Atop this traditional architectural base, Chulew helped the couple layer in furniture, art and accessories that had the California modern bohemian look the wife loved. “This style includes lots of color, cement tile, marine blues that aren’t so traditional, modern lines and an overall sense of playfulness,” she says. Here, the geometry and colors on the throw pillows, the caramel-colored midcentury modern-style chairs and the eclectic coffee table bring in the look. The table was made by California’s Cisco Brothers. It’s a wood pallet encased in a glass-and-steel box.Finally, displaying portraits of beloved political couples is a traditional D.C. design move, but these works by local artist Maggie O’Neill have a contemporary and colorful point of view. They are of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor.The wall and trim paint throughout the first floor is Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams.

I love the colors and feel of this room. The art framing the fireplace really makes the room pop.

One of my faves. Unique to the owner, good reflection of individuality. Not sterile.
