elle decor's "lessons in diplomacy"

In the May issue, Elle Decor features Washington's own Nestor Santa-Cruz, who designed an apartment on U Street for an American businessman returning from London.  It's a fantastic piece that shows how even in trendier parts of town and more industrial-style spaces, treasured antiques can blend with more modern pieces to create elegant rooms.

Santa-Cruz left the exposed ductwork but covered the too-dark cherry floors with sisal rugs and refinished the kitchen cabinets in a black lacquer (not pictured, unfortunately).
