Exquisite craftsmanship in a house by Donald Lococo
Some houses are beautiful and charming even before the decorator gets to do his job. When a particular house is as beautiful as this one, you instantly love it and you almost don’t feel the need to add any more details or even furniture for that matter. This house was a project by Washington DC based architect Donald Lococo. The craftsmanship here is amazing. Everything is perfect, the attention to details is incredible and the whole structure comes together as a whole in a very natural way.
It’s very interesting how the architect played with different textures and materials. For example, that exposed brick wall from the living room is a wonderful touch. It had, however, to be covered in white in order to be able to contribute to the continuous image while also being able to stand out with its texture.
Another wonderful details is that exposed wooden structure from the roof and the beams. In this space, the rough, unfinished textures and the rustic and vintage details go hand in hand to form an amazingly cozy and charming image. The atmosphere in this small area is warm and inviting and the décor is very different from the rest of the house. The fireplace is also a wonderful detail. It’s like a piece of history inside a modern environment.
