WASHINGTON, DC. - When Federica Asack and her husband, Scott, moved to Washington from Bahrain for his job at the Pentagon, they found McLean to be the perfect fit. They loved the community’s family-oriented vibe, all its green space, and its schools, which their three children, Elisabetta, 15, Michael, 14, and Valentina, 7, all attend. The family is currently renting a home in Potomac Hills, and plans to buy a house in the same area next year.

Asack, who is originally from Italy, is an interior designer, has her own decor line, and works at Cote Jardin Antiques in Georgetown. Her mix of fun, surprising pieces and antiques makes for a home that looks both worldly and lived-in. Inside, an Indian cow-feeding bowl serves as a coffee table, a French mirror dates back to the 1800s, and textiles and linens are draped over the railings.

“Have fun with accessories and be a little daring,” says Asack of her design aesthetic. “Have elements of surprise throughout.”
