Art Deco Dressed Up
After years of dressing up actors, costume designer Anne Kennedy used the same skills to dress up her Washington, D.C. apartment. The location sold her on the 700-square-foot space, which was rough but full of potential. She chose a bigger dining room over extra closet space, and a bright orange bathroom makes it easier to wake up in the morning.

To open up the dining area and create better visual flow, Kennedy cut out a large opening between the dining area and living room. Her favorite thing in her apartment is a chandelier made from a street lamp that blew off in a hurricane, filled with Christmas lights.
