THE DC CHRONICLES PART III

now that that whole hurricane thing is over, let me continue

documenting random things in my life.  part three of my district

of columbia adventure continues with one of my passions; interior

design.  i was welcomed into the home of lauren’s aunt julie for

a delectable shrimp curry supper only to be rewarded with

unexpected spur of the moments material.  the decor of this home

immediately blew me away, and i couldn’t help but photograph

every inch of it.  

julie has been collecting one-of-a-kind furnishings for years in

order to develop an authentically eclectic design.  most of her

furniture and accessories were purchased from flea markets and

antique stores, and many of them have been repurposed to serve as

something that other than their original function.  for example,

her headboard is an old gate, her bathroom mirror a vintage

fireplace mantel.  

each room has an exponential amount of character with varieties

of found objects, yet the entire home remains composed and

focused in design.   

it was truly a treat to see such a unique home and learn about

the history of each object that inhabits it.  julie’s job, life,

family, and home are pretty badass, and i am so glad that

spending time at this dc residence was a part of my trip.
