Modern Living on Capitol Hill

A young couple with one toddler and another on the way, contacted Barry with a unique set of needs. They owned a Victorian rowhouse on Washington DC’s historic Capitol Hill and were committed to the neighborhood, with its handsome brick homes, culturally diverse markets and proximity to the Capitol. But they needed a contemporary and functional living space, a home for a family that could withstand curious hands and little fingers, with furnishings that were durable and easy to clean but still had style and sophistication. The transformation in the narrow home was dramatic.
