The recent announcement of the designers for the 2012 DC Design House has peaked my interest in finding out more about those whose work I wasn't acquainted with yet. First up is Dan Proctor of Kirk Designs, a Baltimore firm with 20+ years experience in creating beautiful interiors. These are just a few of the sophisticated and elegant spaces that caught my attention. (all images from the website of Kirk Designs, photographer not known.)
The blue and white ginger jars and the contemporary portrait are an unexpected and perfect pairing.
That glossy orange- red coffee table with all those curves is to die-for, love it!
A simple but incredibly restful and beautiful bedroom.
I covet those mesh metal columns. Very much looking forward to seeing their transformed room for the Design House. To see more of Kirk Designs portfolio, go here.

On another note, my second post for Washingtonian's Open House Blog is Up. Thanks so much to Annie Elliott and Maria Killam for sharing their expertise for How to Choose the "Right" White Paint.

And, thank you to everyone who tweeted about my new assignment and left comments, I very much appreciate it. xoxo Michele
