What Matters

May 2022 Issue

Strike Up the Brand

A Frame for Life. This is the tagline of Interior Matter’s new website which we have proudly and recently launched. We articulate our design philosophy which is rooted in a home’s personality. That personality is imbued by our clients. And we are nothing without a strong and collaborative relationship with our clients. Chemistry is essential in our work. We’ll do all of the heavy lifting. We listen. We understand. We carefully guide clients through a design process calibrated to how much our clients want to be engaged. Working with Interior Matter is fun and also turnkey. We rarely self-promote in What Matters but we’re proud of our work and our team. We have a talented group of people at Interior Matter who make this all possible.

We are booking appointments starting in June, so please forward this email to anyone considering an interior design project. Thank you.

Like our design aesthetic, we’re going to keep this month’s issue simple. Here are some before and after photos for three recent design projects.

Sears Kit Home

This home was sold by Sears in the 1930s and thoughtfully modernized and expanded by a DC architectural firm in 2017. The street facade view remains unchanged. We touched most rooms by adding rich layers of furniture, textiles, furnishings, and window treatments resulting in a sophisticated home for both parents and kids.

Bedroom Set Point

A zen, spa-like primary bedroom was the request from this client in a beautiful Chevy Chase home. We lightened, brightened, softened, and modernized the room with new everything. From furniture to paint to window treatments, lighting, and art we think we’ve mastered the primary bedroom.


This Chesapeake Bay waterfront retreat was custom built for clients who travel and entertain. The home is filled with custom furniture, original art, and a unique blend of warm and cool materials. The guest house/office provide separate quarters and the pool and pergola design were overseen by Interior Matter as well. White walls allow the views of the Bay to be featured from nearly every room.
