Hello! Congratulations on your new home! In order to achieve a warm, light, woody living room, I would consider introducing some Asian-inspired motifs. Silk embroidered pillows, wall hangings with black script, roughly hewn wooden bowls and vase – think Shanghai in the 1920′s. Read more
Do you enjoy good food? What about great service? Then you should try Ripple in Cleveland Park. The menu features seasonal ingredients from local sources, over 50 wines by the glass starting at $6 a glass, and over 50 wines by the bottle starting at $50 per bottle.
