The über-talented interior designer Mary Douglas Drysdale has certainly been busy lately, and the restoration of this 1920's townhouse, on Embassy Row in Washington, DC, is one of those projects. She had also worked with the previous owners on the home's interior. 

Mary is no stranger to historic residences, and she worked diligently to bring back much of the home's original beauty. The attention to detail is obvious here, something Mary is recognized for. The present owners, Bill and Barbara Sullivan, are certainly thrilled with her work.
