Capital Style: Quick Takes

Katie Redmiles Barron, director of communications at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

“My favorite space in my home is my bedroom. Encompassing the entire second floor, I took a nontraditional room and a half with sloping walls and ceilings and made it into a master suite, complete with a dressing area. It’s been my place of rest, relaxation and peace — complete with calming lavender walls. As my husband and I prepare to welcome our first baby, the dressing area’s been packed away and transformed into a nursery for the next iteration of the nontraditional space.”

José-Luis Novo, maestro of Annapolis Symphony Orchestra

“Our dining room is my favorite because it is one of the first rooms we decorated the way we wanted. There is contemporary furniture, bright colors, interesting shapes and glasses, beautiful lighting and a lamp that always gets comments. It feels very much like it encompasses the personality of our home. … We enjoy hosting guests and family, have great meals and great conversations and I just look at the room more dearly now.”

Capital Style: Quick Takes

John Potvin, lighthouse manager and director of preservation at Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse

“My favorite room is not in the house; it is the screen porch on the waterside of our house. We overlook the [Chesapeake] Bay and Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse. The sunrise in the morning is eclipsed by the beautiful twilight at night, when the great blue herons fly past to roost at Thomas Point Park. The sky turns violet and every shade of blue before the stillness of the night takes over.”

Mitchelle Stephenson, public information officer for the city of Annapolis

“My favorite room … is my screened front porch. It’s not big, but it is just right for enjoying a conversation with someone over a glass of wine, or relaxing on Sunday morning while I work the crossword puzzle (for which you’ll need a newspaper subscription). It is sparsely furnished, just two Adirondack chairs and a small bistro set. … Sometimes, after work, I sit out there and my neighbors pass along greetings as they walk their dogs.”
