Mercedes' Evolving Story

House Call

Name: Mercedes
Location: Capitol Hill — Washington DC

My aim is for the things in our home to tell a story about us — whether it's the desk my great-grandfather made, the artwork from friends or the rugs brought home from Afghanistan and Turkey.

My biggest challenge is always editing — I inherited a bunch of family pieces and shortly thereafter my boyfriend moved in. At one point we actually had three dining room tables and figuring out how to mix and match pieces is an ongoing challenge.

Thanks Mercedes!
