Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe newlyweds transformed the white-walled, 800-square-foot bachelor pad into a cozy home for two. The living room is bright and simple with large windows that afford lots of light and a great view of the Washington/Chevy Chase area.
Two years ago, Brian Searby was living in a typical bachelor pad: a mattress on the floor surrounded by electronic equipment and wires. When his new wife, Grace McNicholas, moved in, their goal was to transform the 1920s, one-bedroom apartment into a suitable space for a young couple. The newlyweds were on a very strict budget and faced common renter restrictions so they opened up the tiny space with color, found ways to display their cherished belongings and created a comfortable home for their new lives together.
