DC Inspiration for Your Living Space

Show your district pride with our five favorite DC-inspired pieces for your living space. As an added bonus, you won’t have to go to a tourist shop downtown to buy them!

  • Handmade Washington, DC, pillow by Fritz and Fraulein. These pillows – available in olive green, navy blue, and charcoal gray – are from repurposed wool military blankets and hand silk screened with the DC flag in a cool, metallic sheen.  We like these because they make a great accent piece for a couch, chair, or bed set.
  • DC Neighborhood prints by Cherry Blossom Creative.  These colorful prints let you showcase your favorite district neighborhood, including Bloomingdale, Shaw, Logan Circle, and NoMa, in your home or office.  Our favorite is the Dupont Circle Print – Limited Edition for its rich, golden undertones.
  • DC photography by Colin Winterbottom.  Winterbottom, who grew up in the DC suburbs, has called the district home for over twenty years. His keen eye for the city shows through in his work, which makes familiar places feel like new discoveries.  Our favorite series shows DC in winter because few American cities look as good in the snow as ours does.
  • DC Flag Stained Glass Transom by Terraza Stained Glass. File this one under aspirational.  This beautiful, handmade transom can be customized to your house number.  The Baltimore-based company also offers professional installation for an extra fee if you live in the DC area.  If you can afford, we say, go for it!
  • DC Map Wood Block Art by Salty Lyon. These blocks, available in 8” x 8” or 12” x 12”, feature the artist’s original ink drawing of downtown Washington adhered to color-customizable wood. We like these because they are art you don’t necessarily have to hang on the wall – perfect for those who rent their DC living spaces.
