  • It All Starts with the Art

    By Tom Levine  |  Photography by Geoffrey Hodgdon   When Ernesto Santalla, a Washington, D.C.–based architect and interior designer, signed on to renovate this loft for a globe-trotting couple, he knew that the focus had to be on the couple’s collection of contemporary art. The pair spends much of their time overseas and have amassed a collection that is as international as their lives. Paintings and sculptures have roots in Great Britain, the Netherlands, and.
  • Strong Bonds on the Magothy River

    By Robert Haywood  |  Photography by David Burroughs On the Magothy River, family compounds are passed down through generations. It’s a tradition, dating back to at least the 1940s, where each compound, composed of multiple homes and outbuildings on a single piece of land, was called a “shore,” typically preceded by the owner’s first name. There are no two “shores” alike, and this is one reason why the Magothy, with its low-key charm, is a.
  • Waterfront Oasis on Broadwater

    By Robert Haywood Waterfront landscapes often serve as an extension of a home and outdoor living space where family and friends can swim, dine, and relax. For the landscape architect that challenge is to create entertainment and recreational spaces, with lovely gardens, while preserving views of the waterfront. What is now the Roche family compound began when architect Scarlett Breeding was asked to remodel a typical rancher and turn the waterfront side of the property.

    Design Talk: Framing the View

    Design Talk Framing the View By Margaret Blunt  |  Photography courtesy of Sew Beautiful   In the world of design, obstacles are merely opportunities in disguise. This maxim is especially true with window coverings. Windows are often perceived as so challenging to dress that homeowners may leave them bare. Yet, with some basic principles, you can find a solution that will complete a window of any shape or size and finish the room. When designing.
  • High-Rise, High Tech Kitchen in an Annapolis Penthouse

      High-Rise, High Tech Kitchen in an Annapolis Penthouse By Sarah Hagerty  |  Photography by John Coyle It's not the sort of kitchen you might expect to find in the home of empty-nesting senior citizens. But these particular senior citizens are full of surprises. For instance, this kitchen holds court in the middle of our town’s trendy and trending restaurant and retail renaissance, Annapolis Towne Centre. In fact, it’s perched at the very top of.
  • Artful Kitchen on the Shore

      Artful Kitchen on the Shore By Kymberly Taylor  |  Photography by Geoffrey Hodgdon It's refreshing when people say shocking things, even when a treasured American institution is under attack: the kitchen. “I do not like kitchens. I think they are the ugliest rooms in the house. I hate them. I hate being in them,” says a homeowner and artist who lives on the Eastern Shore. In fact, she and her husband, a woodworker, could.
  • Annapolis Design Showhouse

    Designers and Artists Join Together to Support the Wellness House This past December a group of Annapolis interior designers came together to create the Design Collaborative Art Showhouse, dramatically repurposing a 1890s Gothic Revival church in the heart of the historic district. The church had found new life ten years ago when its interior was smartly redesigned into four condominiums, one of which, owned by Marc Schwartz and Nicole Lombardi was used for the showhouse. Conceived by Katalin Fa.

    Design Talk: Perspectives on the Kitchen

      Design Talk: Perspectives on the Kitchen   In Design Talk, we ask an interior designer and an architect to address how they think about kitchen design, with a special example of their work. They have much to say. Architect Catherine Purple Cherry gives a historical overview of kitchens. She examines the evolution of the kitchen and how it changed from a functional, small room in the 1950s into a space that is now front-and-center.
