Designer Andreas Charalambous gives this historic D.C. townhouse a modern makeover, while still preserving the home's rich character.
Classic Townhouse With Transitional Interior
Located in Georgetown, this D.C. home gives off a traditional townhouse vibe from the outside, but the inside features a newly-redone transitional design, which incorporates modern style with classic design elements.
Featured in a traditional townhouse, this kitchen was given a contemporary edge with white walls and cabinets, a sleek kitchen island with silver chairs, and a breakfast nook with a basic white table and creative green chandelier.
This transitional dining room showcases a fabulous pair of built-in bookshelves on either side of a piece of artwork that helps to anchor the wall. A basic wooden table sits on a neutral, textured rug, for a stylish, minimalist look.
The homeowners of this traditional townhouse hoped to give the space an entirely modern look, but some things were just too beautiful to change. For instance, the decorative plaster ceiling medallions may not fit into a classically modern aesthetic, but with the right pendant light, they blend seamlessly and contribute a lot of character to the space.
Off the dining room sits a light and airy living space, featuring a white sofa which contradicts beautifully with the dark hardwood floors. Minimal art and neutral colors contribute to the soft visual.
Upon entering the foyer, a view of the stunning traditional staircase is juxtaposed by clean white walls and contemporary lighting – the first example of the seamless transitional style found within the rest of the home.
