It has been a while since my last DC Designer post and I'm happy to return to it by featuring the work of Dolly Howarth of Howarth Designs. Love Dolly's confident use of strong color and thoughtful selection and placement of furniture. She designs room that let the artwork stand out; such as in this space with the blue abstract painting. It is quite striking against the red stripes. The flaired leg table also plays off the torch-style sconce beautifully. (Images posted with permission. All photography by Angie Seckinger)

I think this cabinet is a beautiful piece - an unexpected color and the perfect size for the angled wall.
The Washington DC area is known for its red dining rooms but this one is anything but the typical. Traditional furniture is paired with a contemporary carpet and accents of blue for a fresh look. Even the chandelier has a bit of twist with its oversized crystal pieces. photos: Angie Seckinger
A warm and enveloping bedroom with curtains that span the room. The metallic finish on the bedside bureau adds a touch of glamour to this restful design.

Love these upholstered chairs!
This kitchen is an artful mix of traditional and contemporary. Fun backsplash tile! Notice the wood drawers on either side of the stove - they tie in with the wood used on the island. This was just a small peek into Dolly's designs - to see more click here.
