Historically Inspired Renovation
When designer Sara Tuttle and architect David Jones were hired to tackle the renovation of this Chevy Chase, Maryland, home,
it had fallen far from its initial incarnation.The original house embodied the ideal combination of sophisticated formality
and a country house's down-home simplicity. Smitten with its potential, the current owners saw past its imperfections and
set about creating a space that's comfortable yet not afraid of dressing up a little. Now, the house achieves just the right
equilibrium of comfort and elegance—the ultimate in Southern hospitality. From architectural features to decorative details,
here's what makes each room great.
