The Washington Post features the lovely home of Loi Thai, co-owner of Bethesda furnishings store Tone on Tone. The former cramped, dark house was renovated over 18 months into an open, airy, light-filled space. Loi Thai decorated his home with gray walls, white floors, and furniture covered in neutral-colored upholstery.
Loi Thai claims that a pale palette "makes you feel good, relaxed and soothing." He mixes antiques with inexpensive pieces from major chain stores like Crate and Barrel, Ikea, and Target.
