WASHINGTON, DC. - You’ve probably heard the famous fashion rule of thumb attributed to Coco Chanel: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.”

This place is the opposite. Wherever homeowner and interior designer Sara Tuttle can add color, texture, pattern, or something playful and unexpected, she goes for it.

“So much design I see now is so edited,” Tuttle says. “There is appeal to having a very spare look because it is calming and soothing. But you can have a lot in your space and it can still feel sophisticated and inviting and just one of a kind.”

On first glance, all the bold, saturated hues seem to dominate the living room of her Leesburg townhouse. But on inspection, you’ll see that the large furniture pieces—the foundation of the space—are mostly neutral.
