House Beautiful Features Barry Dixon’s Modern Family Home Design

Find a cool spot this warm holiday weekend, sip on something cold and crack open the hot new issue of House Beautiful magazine. This month the editors are celebrating family lifestyles with lots of colorful, kid (and dog) friendly homes that prove we needn’t sacrifice style for livable practicality. Our thanks to the editors for including this home we designed for an active young family (two very busy adults, four energetic kids, and one exceptionally sweet dog) in an urban oasis in DC, architecturally re-imagined by my talented friend Ankie Barnes. Cheers to the weekend, my friends – and the inspiration of modern family life!
