Penthouse At The Metropole

Washington, DC, is a bustling art area, and with that comes the expansion of more design minded individuals purchasing homes in the area. Located in Logan Circle is this stunning two-story Penthouse renovation by FORMA at The Metropole building that overlooks the busy city streets.

The interior of this space is a calming blend of whites and bright mixtures all from the artworks hanging on the walls, and the patterned modular Missoni style sofa in the living space. The kitchen offsets it all with the custom cabinetry, and the upstairs keeps things light with the exception of bedding and espresso hardwood floors throughout. The multi-story home is no stranger to light, either. With the atrium designed center and loft styled bedroom, everything is open, fresh and airy.
