This 1950s cape cod style home in Bethesda, Maryland had a closed off and dark feel with a very small kitchen and dining room and an awkward addition. Several load bearing walls made an open concept challenging.
Through years of international travel, the homeowner had accumulated artwork that she was eager to display. She had developed an eclectic taste, but was also drawn to classic design features and bold colors. The challenge was to maintain the character of the home while incorporating her collection in a clean and elegant fashion.
