A Couple's Graphic & Cool Small Space Condo

Professional Project

Project by: Jennifer Wagner Schmidt
Location: Washington D.C.

Looking for a style that's slightly glamorous, full of graphic pattern but still casual enough to be comfortable? You'll find some inspiration in the home of this young couple who hired Jennifer Wagner Schmidt to design their condo to give them a style that work with both of their tastes.

From the designer:

Jennifer Wagner Schmidt of JWS Interiors was hired to help a 20 something couple design their new condo's only dining area and entryway. A challenge to make the most of the small space, JWS Interiors chose a graphic wallpaper to make a statement in the narrow entrance and found the perfect foyer table that was just narrow enough to hold keys and a few items.

As you walk in, a beautiful custom gray buffet serves as the perfect entertaining spot when family and friends come over. Ample storage provides for necessary china and serving pieces. Adjacent to the serving area is the eat-in kitchen and the only dining area in the home.

JWS Interiors decided to use a banquette to maximize seating and give the space a cozy feel. The cowhide rug is a modern touch along with the acrylic chairs. A large painting found on Joss & Main fills the wall space and completes the fresh, modern look.

Thanks, Jennifer Wagner Schmidt!
