How do you blend storage solutions into your décor?
Storage is most effective when integrated seamlessly into the interior architecture, rather than implemented later as a strategy to deal with clutter. In our design work, we try to recognize the natural flow of the home first, then decide where to display objects and where to store them.

Richard Miller recalls meeting the neighbors for the first time after moving into a Federal-style townhouse in the embassy-lined neighborhood of Kalorama. “My wife, Ellen, and I were standing outside on the stoop, and the garage door opened next door and a Rolls Royce came out, and inside was a second Rolls Royce. Across the street, the garage opened, and a fancy Mercedes came out. We thought, My god, who lives here? This was 1975, before prices were so out of control,” says the retired educator and psychologist.

When a corporate executive built her contemporary Kalorama home, she called on Vincent Sagart of Poliform | sagartstudio to design its spacious, private quarters. Walls of windows admitted plenty of natural light and views of surrounding Rock Creek Park, so Sagart concentrated on bringing warmth to the space through dark-stained wall paneling and colorful accessories. “The toughest part was to integrate [the owner’s] collection of fine art and to create ways to store her garments so that they don’t look like they are in wardrobes,” he says.
