Aspire House Mclean — Powder Room Vestibule

Best Implemented Interior Design Project Using Works of Art

About the project
Federica Asack was chosen as one of the 33 designers to infuse a room in the newly built Aspire House Mclean 2020 with her own signature style. Her room was Powder Room Vestibule on the terrace level. The elegant transition space is seven-feet-by-five-feet with an entryway from the main living area with doors to the powder room and a storage space.
"To establish a sense of intimacy and a bit of magic and without guidelines from a client, I started the design process imagining this spot as a space where you could share a secret. A French antique statue in a vulnerable pose is my muse; she is laying at rest and infinitely comfortable as if hidden in the woods. To create style tension, I wrapped the statue in walls of flowers, even on the ceiling, and used a shape inspired by a traditional Indian pattern. A whimsical blue bunny from a contemporary artist and framed drawings of old Rome watch over her sleeping, while an antique chair and rug complete the setting.
