Stylish Transformations

BEFORE & AFTER: A renovation by Bonnie Ammon Interiors marries form and function

Stylish Transformations - Once part of the estate where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis grew up, Merrywood on the Potomac is an enclave of condos built in 1969.

In one particular unit, the owners had tired of interiors that reflected a bygone era. They hired designer Bonnie Ammon to create a contemporary aesthetic that would refresh their abode. “The owners envisioned a tailored, modern space,” Ammon says. “We transformed it with metal stair rails, steel doors, paneled-metal walls and plaster cove moldings. Entertainment areas hold intimate and large gatherings.”

Ammon conjured drama with a high-contrast palette of light and dark. In the living room, original oak flooring was stained ebony and charcoal window treatments offset light-gray walls. A sleek limestone fireplace is a focal point against a dark-gray accent wall. A Vanguard sectional and wingback chairs from Jessica Charles surround the fireplace, while swivel chairs and an ottoman by Vanguard occupy another seating area. “With this palette,” Ammon notes, “just a punch of color from art and accessories can change the mood.”
