Homework in the Living Room

Luxe Designs Combines Style and Functionality

The pandemic has shifted not only how we spend our time, but where: at home. Patty Lustig of Lux Design Associates has been designing homes and commercial spaces for more than 15 years, but she’s never had a year like 2020.

“Individual taste – more than trends – drive home design in Northern Virginia,” Patty says. “This year I’ve helped more clients who have wanted to decorate or remodel finally make it happen.”

From a Great Gatsby-inspired lounge to a marble wall in a luxurious teen bedroom, Patty Lustig’s designs invoke strong feelings. Here, traditional styled furniture, coffered ceilings, and built-ins get a punch of color, and fun. “Drama can come from pattern, paint, or fabric."

“We’ve really moved away from rooms that feel impersonal or cold. More than ever, homeowners are seeking comfort in the spaces where they spend the most time.” Blue velvet on a bedroom sofa is mirrored on the ceiling while a soft, upholstered ottoman serves as the coffee table.

“So many homes have these really incredible architectural features that can become design challenges, or incredible focal points.” Yards and yards of drapery highlight this two-story living room with crisp, white trim details and a custom-painted ceiling that draw the eye up.

"Office and homework spaces have been popular during the pandemic but Lux Design associates has also noted a number of homeowners wanting to add their own unique touch to common space like foyers and basements. Whatever your inspiration, "We can make it happen," says Patty. Tour more rooms by Patty Lustig and Lux Design Associates at
