Hudson & Crane co-owner Jaye Langmaid says he plans to test a second location of his popular Adams Morgan home goods store at the Wharf. He says he’s aiming to open a pop-up shop at the new Southwest waterfront development by the end of the month, and there’s a chance the store will remain permanently: “We’re testing the location and neighborhood to see how they respond to us and how traffic is.”

In addition to operating as a furniture and decor shop, Hudson & Crane also offers interior design services. Langmaid shared the news about his forthcoming Wharf location during a tour of his most recent project, the Kipling House condos on Capitol Hill.

The 49-unit development from Madison Investments includes a mix of studios and one- and two-bedrooms ranging from the $400,000s to the $800,000s. Langmaid decorated a two-bedroom model unit, listed for $849,900. Here’s a look inside.

Everything in the model, including the artwork, is from Hudson & Crane. All of the furniture and decor is for sale.
Langmaid painted the living room a subtle blush tone. He says he’s interested in warmer paint hues these days: “I’m tired of grays.”
The designer chose to forego a more formal dining area so he could maximize space for the living room. A corner bistro table, plus bar-seating serve as informal dining options.
Langmaid turned the second bedroom into a den. “I like to layer. It looks more authentic,” he says. “Nothing in here matches at all, but it all works together.”
He chose bronze for the master bedroom walls.
