Master Bathroom Dreaming

My Reno Reveal in Washingtonian

Yes, it’s pricey, but here’s all the renovation work that $140,000 will buy you in a home in Arlington, Virginia. Hint: The kitchen was responsible for most of it!

The Shade Store Reveal

Finally, our draperies and Roman shades from The Shade Store have been installed in the master bedroom. And what a difference they make!

Room Refresh with Layla Grayce
