Spacious Living Room

Designer Andreas Charalambous uses ebonized wide plank wood flooring throughout the Georgetown flat to create cohesion in the different rooms. Custom cabinetry provides plenty of storage for electronics, allowing for a clean, streamlined look in the living room.

Streamlined Kitchen Design

Neutral cabinets and walls are given a textured look to add visual interest without distracting from the sleek, minimalist style of the kitchen. The elegant chandelier brings a touch of opulence to the modern space.

Elegant Breakfast Area

Off the kitchen, Charlambous creates a contemporary dining area. A large mirror is placed on the wall to give the illusion of more space, while also reflecting the stunning chandelier.

Minimalist Bedroom

Simple, low furniture is used to create a serene bedroom retreat. The focal point of the space are the custom wood headboard and nightstands that are backlit with LED lighting.

Monochromatic Bathroom

Keeping with the minimalist feel of the master bedroom, the master bathroom uses a white-on-white color palette. The spa-like space features a steam bath/shower with multiple ceiling showerheads, a handheld shower and body sprays.

Inviting Guest Bedroom

The triangular space adjacent to the old balcony is transformed into a guest bedroom with moveable European-size beds that share a built-in headboard.

Clean, Contemporary Bathroom

Dark cabinetry and white walls and flooring create a dramatic contrast in the guest bathroom.

Bar With a View

This space was once a second balcony for the home, but now features a wet bar and office area. The exposed brick is left in the room to add a rustic element to the contemporary style.
