Historic Row House With Eclectic Entryway

When the owner of a run-down, century-old row house near D.C.'s Union Market asked Kerra Michele Huerta to help renovate their space, the designer leapt at the chance to get creative. After the construction crew dug out the basement to create a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment with a full kitchen for guests, Huerta stepped into the entryway and used remnants of unsalvageable pine floors to design a "welcome mat" inlay in the new foyer. The coat rack was repurposed too; though it seems right at home next to the bright red art, it's actually comprised of old pipes.
