Sneak Peak: Inside DC Embassies and Ambassadorial Residences

We just got back from the fantastic Modern Embassy Walking Tour led by Dwell Magazine editor Aaron Britt. We rushed to share some photos and info with you that are hot off the [press] digital camera. The European Embassies we visited all boasted of their high environmental standards, which are tougher than the U.S. requirements. The Embassies showcase stunning "green" design and products.

Shown are the Finnish Embassy, the Italian Embassy, Hillary and Bill Clinton's current DC home, and our dog Cassidy enjoying the Swiss Ambassador's recycled glass floor. We plan to show you more on the Finnish Embassy, Swiss Ambassador's residence, and Danish Ambassador's residence, just as soon as our feet and camera recover! Thanks to Dwell for organizing the great tour and thanks to the Embassies for allowing us and our dog into your amazing spaces.
