Alan loves his mid-century modern home in Chevy Chase. He just did not love the original 1970s entry. It was dark and closed in.  It felt uninviting.

First, the  Merrick team removed all of the dark pine paneling from the entry, stairway, hallway, and ceiling. It was everywhere! Then we removed the half walls closing in the stairs. Next, we installed a new steel and cable railing system. This open railing gives the feel of more room in what was such a closed-in area. The difference is dramatic. Without adding a single-window, the space feels lighter and brighter. We were honored to win the NARI CotY Grand Award for a Residential Interior Under $75,000.
