WASHINGTON, DC. - Interior designer Will Joyner’s Southwest Waterfront studio is the ultimate bachelor pad.

When the 53-year-old bought the place in 2006, he was drawn to it for its proximity to the Metro and some of his favorite spots like the National Gallery of Art, the Air and Space Museum, and the Hirshhorn. Now, of course, it’s also a few minutes’ walk away from the Wharf, with all of its restaurants, bars, and shops. “I’ve watched the neighborhood blossom over the years to become one of the District’s most sought-after places to live,” he says.

Joyner packs a lot of glam into the 485-square-foot home—a bonus of living in a small space. “You can spend a little more on things that you love and really want,” he says, “as opposed to compromising on the quality of a piece by stretching the budget to furnish a four- or five-room house.”

Inside, portraits of James Bond and Diana Ross line the walls, and Joyner often invites friends over for what he calls his “famous” cocktails. “I like to think of my space as a sexy hotel suite that I just happen to spend every night in.”
