A month of fruitlessly searching for a house in Washington, D.C. left Tamon and Zaria doubting they would find that place that really felt like home.
After dropping Zaria off at work one morning, Tamon spotted a house with permits in the windows. “Anytime you see permits in the window you know the house is being renovated,” Tamon said. “So I get out of my car. It’s seven in the morning, and I’m poking around like a creep. All the windows are covered with construction paper. So I walk around to the back of the house to get a better view.”
Peeking through the back windows, Tamon saw the house’s potential. He and Zaria put in an offer that day. “When the offer was accepted we hadn’t even been inside,” Tamon said. “It was a leap of faith, but it felt right. You could see the vision, and possibility in the space.”
Tamon and Zaria harnessed their shared creative energy to make their home a critically curated space—simple, clean, and inviting. “We wanted a statement space, not statement pieces,” Tamon said. “We tried to think of the whole space collectively. I knew I wanted to do a gallery wall. I wanted it to reflect our life and some really important moments.”
