Brightly Colored AdMo Co-op

This two-bedroom co-op on the northern edge of Adams Morgan was recently featured on Apartment Therapy for its use of bold colors and unique accents.

Two French doors in the living room lead to an extra space that could be used as a formal dining area or home office. The adjacent kitchen has white cabinetry, quartz counters, a subway tile backsplash and bronze accents. The clean-looking bathroom features hexagonal floor tiles and a pedestal sink.
