An Art-Filled Virginia Home Reinvented Into a Fresh Comfortable Home

The designers envisioned the dining room as part garden room with its plentiful glass doors and stone floor. They added a fireplace for winter warmth and crowned the room with a wood-and-metal chandelier. “We originally intended this room as a family room,” says Sherrill, “but we realized they’d never use the living room if we had followed through.”

When Wayne and Gloria Knox called on the Washington, D.C., design firm of Solis Betancourt & Sherrill to renovate and decorate their newly purchased home in Arlington, Virginia, they tasked the team with two major objectives: to rescue the 1950s interior of the Tudor-style house and to provide an appropriate backdrop for their extensive collection of French and Swedish antiques. “We’ve been friends with Wayne and Gloria for 25 years,” says Paul Sherrill, “and Wayne has a great relationship with several fine antiques dealers in the area, such as Marston Luce, Tone on Tone, and DHS, among others. As a result, his collected pieces work beautifully in the home.”
