Yesterday I mentioned that a dear friend is moving into a studio apartment in Cleveland Park NW DC and is looking for design ideas for outfitting her new soon-to-be home. To continue my search for design inspirations to spark a funky, lovely, urban, yet playful concept for my friend’s new Cleveland Park NW DC apartment, I found these….for your viewing pleasure (and mine)! Of course, I kept in mind notable Draper Effect elements.
Love the chandelier in this photo below. Draper Effect element: striking detail. Check.
Draper Effect element: Dense textured carpet. Check. I like this one below, textured minimalist. And what a neat idea for a coffee table!
Draper Effect element: Intense color. Check! Even with black and white…and a hot pop of pink.
I just love this couch and set of chairs…very urban feel.
More Dorothy Draper elements: bold, exuberant prints on the carpet. Striking details in the chandeliers. Check. Check!
This one… well, it’s just glam, glam, glam with a hint of sophistication.
Ornate mirror — without the overdose. A striking detail and Dorothy Draper element. Check. I love the patterns, texture, and fantabulous blend of bold colors in this room. Oh, and of course, how can I forget Dorothy Draper design element: Roaring Fire!
Umm…. great couch. Need I say more?
And a little urban serenity… good use of natural elements.
Now, do share! Which of these images connect with your urban, playful, funky, and lovely self?
