In a whole-house redo in DC’s Spring Valley, a door painted in Benjamin Moore’s Bayberry Blue sets the tone for a breakfast room with a reproduction Tulip table and Clarence House Roman shades.

Farrow & Ball’s Yeabridge Green dominates a family room with a slipper chair upholstered in a Jasper Fabrics print; the window shade fabric is by Clarence House.

Pierre Frey wallpaper creates a backdrop for revamped antiques in the living room.

Griffith Blythe Interiors

Sisters Griffith Roberts Roth (left) and Blythe Roberts McNerney share a lifelong love for interiors—and a longtime vision of owning a business together. Before launching Griffith Blythe Interiors in 2016, they followed similar trajectories, both studying at the New York School of Interior Design and working under such luminaries as Bunny Williams and Celerie Kemble (Griffith) and Martha Stewart (Blythe). Both eventually married and returned to the Washington area, where they had spent their childhoods in McLean and Alexandria.

The designers bring “a colorful traditionalist eye” to their work, says Blythe. “A lot of DC design is neutral, so we were excited to put our stamp on antiques, which we grew up with and love, and our penchant for color and pattern.”

Griffith Blythe Interiors currently has clients in Florida, Nantucket and New York as well as DC. In 2020, the duo launched Gatopard, an online shop selling table linens of their own design. “One day, we’d like to open a custom-linens showroom where people can see and touch the fabric,” Griffith reveals, adding: “We’d keep our design business, of course.”
