Office Space

A restful workspace capitalizes on its panoramic view

Office Space Architect Cathy Purple Cherry and interior designer Arlene Critzos collaborated on a traditional waterfront home in Annapolis’s historic Bay Ridge community, overlooking the Chesapeake. While Purple Cherry designed the home to reflect its owners’ affinity for Nantucket style, with wide porches, cedar shakes, and dormer windows, Critzos created “a clean, traditional look” for the interiors that gave the views center stage. In the restful second-floor study, a comfortable Fairfield chair pulls up to an elegant writing desk from Hooker Furniture, positioned beneath windows framed by custom drapes. A Lee Industries bench is a relaxing perch adorned with a throw from Saro Trading. Like the rest of the house, says Critzos, “It’s not over-decorated; it’s just at ease.”
