Coming up with a title for Ralph's house tour was a freebie— I probably said "whoa, cool" about 1,000 times during the course of the photo-shoot. From the sculptural quality of the winding central staircase, to the luminous glass tiled master bath which overlooks the upper hallway and soaks in light from the massive skylight, to the retractable awning off the living room deck and the perfectly modern landscaping which manages to look lush and organic and clean and graphic all at once, it's all cool! Oh, and the fact that it sits at the hub of three of DC's most popular night spots, well, that's pretty cool too.
