A huge thanks to House Beautiful for letting me share this sneak peek of  Mary Douglas Drysdales' transformation of a classic Georgetown rowhouse in their July/August issued devoted to small spaces and how to make the most of each square foot. (all photographs by Bjorn Wallander)

A master at transforming interiors, Mary combined simple moldings, sunny patterns, and antique family heirlooms to create warmth and comfort. Throughout the first floor, subtly striped walls add charm to a narrow space, and the cohesive yellow and white palette make small rooms seem larger.

When extra space is at a premium, beautifully styled shelves can also be practical storage.  

Check out these floors awash in a barely-there but still stunning pattern.  Row houses tend to be narrow and these floors create an expansive feel.

Love all these charming touches in this bedroom.

Can't wait till my July/August issue arrives in the mailbox!  Hope you have a great weekend, Michele
