There are some things you make room for on your calendar, and a gathering at the home of Loi Thai and Tom Troeschel to welcome LA designer + architect duo Brooke and Steve Giannetti to DC is one of them. Loi and Tom own an antiques store I love in Bethesda called Tone on Tone. In fact, my first visit years ago convinced me to have my own floors bleached and covered in a white tint. As you can see, that treatment is what helps make each room feel airy, bright and welcoming. Between conversations, I took shots of my three favorite spots…neutral backdrops, rich with patina and pops of color. No one left this party early.
