The Inside Scoop at

Practical, Elegant, Traditional Home Decor Design

Posted on: January 14, 2012

The color palette Kelley Proxmire uses in this Kenwood home (Chevy Chase, MD area) speaks volumes to me. The blues of the headboard and ceiling playing with the stripped curtains. Lovely.

The article which this photograph (by Erik Johnson) accompanies describes a “restful palette”. Indeed!

To see more photos of this spectacular home, and read Julie Sanders‘s history of the home and its redesign, visit the January/February 2012 issue of Home & Design: The Magazine of Architecture and Fine Interiors.

Some telling phrases from the article (which never names the couple): “crisp use of color and contrast”; a focus on “finishes” like “walls faux-painted to look like linen, textured wallpaper and distressed wood furniture”; “a family house and it has to be practical”.
