As part of a new series, we’re checking in with local designers and remodelers to get the scoop on their personal favorites in their project portfolios. First up? Stuart Nordin, an Alexandria-based interior decorator known for her elegant yet livable spaces. This room, a dining room, was done for a client and friend in Old Town.

“I think it’s a nice mix of old and new that creates a classic and timeless look,” says Nordin. “We used a contemporary Saarinen table, a glass chandelier, and a framed abstract cutout by local artist Hannah Cohen juxtaposed with a more rustic hutch found at Luckett’s and vintage style Louis XVI square back dining chairs. Simple and elegant!”
