This Washington D.C. Craftsman belongs to a young professional couple who desired a welcoming “first home” that could eventually transition to the perfect space for raising a family. Designer Janelle Blakely Photopoulos created a warm and bright atmosphere that boasts comfortable, functional furnishings, a tastefully curated palette of blues, greens and unexpected pops of color, and global-inspired art and accessories that speak to one of the homeowner’s Indian heritage. Plus, bold wallpapers used throughout the home highlight both the homeowners’ desire for unique and lively spaces, as well as Blakely Interior Design’s vibrant aesthetic as a design company.
