“They were dream clients,” designer Paul Corrie says of the owners of this remodeled townhouse in Washington DC’s Logan Circle. The gentlemen, a lawyer and a doctor, were in the middle of their first surrogacy journey at the same time they bought the house. “They had strong opinions about aesthetics and colors, but they trusted me,” he continues. I’ve always been able to provide my professional advice, and they’ve respected that.
Corrie incorporated a masculine palette of black, walnut and blue. But because they were expecting a child (they now have two), they also wanted a fun element. So the designer started with a custom Kyle Bunting rug and let his color palette guide the rest of the project. As usual, he’s included plenty of customization, like the rosewood bar cabinet, which has built-in sconces that also illuminate the adjoining dining area. The result is “integrated and versatile,” he notes.
Take a tour of the entire house below.
The living room
Corrie let the rug lead it but wove in her “iconic pops of color”. He also added custom shelves in a very shiny pain for the couple to display their art.

The designer says his guiding principle here was to create something “modified but appropriate” with a healthy dose of “masculine chic and pops of color for the modern family.”

“It’s incredibly textural,” says Corrie, “but appropriate for who uses the space. It has a sophisticated and gentlemanly vibe. Clients had artists that appealed to them, and the designer completed their works with others. The piece next to the bed, for example, is by Andrew Mowbray, purchased from Corrie’s favorite gallery in Provincetown.
