Rosewood Washington, DC unveiled six new townhouses as the final component of the property’s recent renovation. Built in the 1700s with modern, inspired interiors by locally based and internationally renowned residential designer Thomas Pheasant, the new townhouses follow the debut of new dining concepts and revamped public spaces in August 2019.
Upon arrival through a private entrance, guests are greeted by a spacious living area adorned with a fireplace and locally inspired décor, including a one-of-a-kind, black-and-white photograph of an iconic DC landmark taken and produced by Pheasant. On the second story, a fully equipped kitchen as well as a communal dining area provides direct access to a private, fully furnished back patio. Ascending one floor, a master bedroom boasts a designer bed and a separate dressing station, while the topmost story showcases a three-piece master bathroom with a deep-soaking tub, walk-in rainforest shower, and heated marble floors. A lower level additionally features a separate powder room and washer and dryer.
In keeping with the ambience of the hotel, the light-filled accommodations fuse modern style and contemporary furnishings with classic residential design details. From traditional molding to intricate marble and stonework to the size and scale of the townhouse, the influence of the immediate locale is omnipresent throughout each accommodation. A clean and neutral color palette of pale platinum tones, complemented by splashes of spring green and cool blue, sets the stage for the six spaces, which are furnished with custom pieces. The interiors are further defined by their curated art collections, entirely unique to each individual townhouse and featuring local artists and subjects from the surrounding metropolitan area.
“Being born and raised in Washington, DC, I was excited to have this opportunity to bring a new experience to my hometown that simultaneously grants visitors a glimpse into what it is really like to live in this great city,” says Pheasant. “With each of our design decisions, we aimed to give guests their own little piece of Georgetown and create an intimate escape that emulates the feeling of staying in one of the neighborhood’s historic family homes.”
