I almost passed out when I saw the 'Before' pics.... did not know if they were the 'actuals'! Thank you for rescuing that house. Good job- it looks lovely!

I love the floors, and I love the 'open-ness' of the space. What was the original floor-plan like?

Brookland- ADORABLE!

Southwest- may be affordable, but maintenance/condo fees in SW are killer if you are looking at buying.
(and unfortunately- way to many 1980s type buildings for my taste!) Don't attack me- just my opinion.

Disclaimer- I live in NW (Kalorama).

WOW! I am totally blown away. I happen to know where you live (not in a creepy way- i just recognized the studio because I sell homes- and no, I am not plugging my business). I sold a place similar to yours and CANNOT believe how efficiently you put everything together in that small space. You even managed a dining area. It is a lovely and functional space. And i 'heart' your gallery wall. Gorge. Good job Stefan.

I live in DC and frequent G street fabrics. The Rockville one has a better selection (my opinion) in the remnant section. You can find some really funky fabric for 3.97 a yard or 7.97 depending. Take time to look through everything, since there are lots of gems hidden in the batch of uglies.

IpsoCrafto owner says it is a tough economy, and they are suffering as a small business. More reason for us to buy and support local.

Alas the historic society will not even let me THINK about what color to change the exterior of my house.

Speaking of which- I LOVE that Row of houses you have pictured. I walk by them on 16th street. My fav thing is during the holidays, each house lights a window candle. It is the loveliest site driving down 16th- even for my usual 'unfestive' self.

gswiszcza- let me know if you get a good resource for a dc upholsterer who is affordable. I am ALSO debating whether or not to DIY something, but have heard it can be a nightmare.

Ipsocrafto is closing down in December. And everything is currently 30% off. Breaks my heart, because I just discovered it.

Katherinec- have you tried the usual suspects on 14th street, and the U street corridor. You prolly have, but just in case. I would also do the occasional trip to the boonies of VA. I always get good stuff there.

Also, about G street- i took the beginners sewing class (made a tote bag and PJs). It was helpful, but I learned a lot more sewing from library books, and a few picks from Amazon. I can send you my list. Also, at one point IpsoCrafto had private lessons for $40 an hour (I think). Check to see if they still offer them. I can email you my booklist if you like.

I love Elfa systems. I had one at my old house, and recently moved and got a second one installed at the new place.

However, I am not crazy about the shoe rack thingie. It is not great for flats or for boots- and I have had to get a different system for both.

I am with Monica on this one. I have priced cool curtains EVERYWHERE, and it is soooo much better to find a cool fabric, and sew them. The supplies section on Etsy typically has some great fabrics, and it is REALLY easy to make them.

Email me, and I can send you easy instructions on how to.

Absolutely Darling! Very well edited. I love that you have the aboriginal art pieces. Those are gorgeous- and unique.

And can I have the cat?
