Living in the Mid-Atlantic, it has always amazed me that nearly all the designers whose work occupies my Instagram feed seem to be located in the South or New York. The Mid -Atlantic, especially Washington D.C., is chalked full of talented designers and that’s why today, I’m particularly delighted to be featuring the work of Maryland/DC designer Sally Steponkus Roche.
If you aren’t familiar with her work, Sally is an interior designer serving the National Capital Region who has been featured in publications from House Beautiful and Southern Living to Traditional Home and Luxe. Needless to say, her work is gorgeous. Sally’s firm, Sally Steponkus Interiors, is comprised of herself and a team of three and her aesthetic is best described as “updated traditional – classic with a unique twist.” So basically my design style to a tee.
Possessing the perfect amount of Southern charm, Sally’s interiors are as approachable as they are sophisticated. She has an incredible eye for detail and it gives her an ability to pair patterns and maximize space in so many clever ways! Whether it’s adding a preppy pop with colorful accents or mixing various finishes of wood, her interiors are a beautiful example of cheerful, traditional design. So, without further ado, here are a few of my personal favorite highlights of Sally’s work to help kick off your week with an inspiring start.
If you’d like to follow Sally on Instagram you can find her page here– I can never follow enough interior designers! I actually first discovered her work by stumbling upon her Pinterest account (here) which is also loaded with inspiration. Sally is also joining us today, March 27th for our Instagram Live “Roll Call” series, where I will be sitting down with Sally to learn more about her and business and of course, chat about all things design.
