This photo from House Beautiful Istanbul is the handiwork of a designer in my new hometown.
Judith Minoff is no small town girl. Her designs for the heads of multi-national companies have made news and she is now in Fredricksburg, Virginia.
The classical elements and nearly white walls let the architecture and a few choice peices do the speaking.
I find her mix of high and low with ethnic, Federal, and Victorian very satisfying.
Take a look HERE.
