We've long loved the idea of living in The Watergate and envied the Potomac River views. This week The Washington Post shares the lovely redecorated 2-bedroom, 2-level Watergate condo of Myrna and Arthur "Chip" Fawcett. Designer Lori Graham changed the 1960's decor to a more updated look.

The Fawcetts hired Lori Graham for a budget-friendly makeover that kept many of their existing pieces. Before the redecoration, the condo had padded silk walls and unattractive radiators. Lori Graham turned the ugly radiators into cozy reading nooks with ventilated radiator covers and seat cushions. She also used paint to lighten up the space.
