My Favorite Room: Designer Christopher Patrick Shares His Top Project

The Washington designer tells us about his favorite space.

Washington-based interior designer Christopher Patrick—he’s the guy responsible for the gorgeously dramatic bedroom in this year’s DC Design House—explains the story behind this kitchen’s transformation in a Kalorama home.

“The kitchen was originally designed with a large antique french butcher block table on one side, reducing the amount of usable countertop space. Around the corner, a custom walnut floor-to-ceiling cabinet adds much needed pantry space and speaks to the custom walnut hood. This space also appeals to my own personal design aesthetic. The client and I have very similar taste, so when we began to collaborate on the kitchen finishes it was as if we were one person. Lastly, one of my favorite pieces was the custom table base by Squareform metal working. They created a few different table bases for us to choose from to fit an existing marble table top the client already had. The end result of the kitchen is understated luxury and subtle sophistication. I love it.”
