Washington, DC has always held a special place in my heart. The summer after I graduated from college, I worked in the Special Events department of the National Gallery and fell in love everything DC had to offer. Being in the gallery after hours without the crowds was divine. I could experience the Matisse cutouts with just a guard present and could enjoy the Calder mobile in the grand foyer with not another soul in sight. At night, we would take it as much culture as we could ranging from attending free concerts on the Mall to experiencing my favorite dive…the now defunct New Vegas Lounge.
The latest Peachy issue is all about this great city. As I was working on my Interiors article about Lauren Liess, she was in the midst of her final photo shoot for her book Habitat due out this fall, in the midst of a MAJOR installation, and preparing for the birth of her fourth child.(Welcome to the world Baby Gisele!) I was in awe of her unending creative talent which not only included interior design, but also textile design and writing her amazing blog Pure Style Home.
