Here's to more talented designers hailing from our nation's capital and this duo happens to be native Washingtonians - an occurrence that is more rare than common in this transient city. Joe Ireland and Julie Weber of J. D. Ireland Interior Architecture and Design are the talent behind these beautiful designs. I think elegant, comfortable and timeless are good descriptors for the rooms featured here. Love the screen and the black metal side table in the room above. (Photos posted with permission.

Crisp and hip. The horizontal striped pillow is perfect. (Photography by Stacy Zarin Goldberg)

The symmetry of this design serves this stately room well. (photography by Stacy Zarin Goldberg)
If you would like to see more of their work in person here's some good news - J.D. Ireland are the designers for the Entry Hall, Stair Hall and Back Stairs in the upcoming 2009 DC Design House which runs from April 18th - May 10th. The design house is a three-story Victorian mansion located in Georgetown so I have a feeling the stairways are going to be quite impressive.
