While en route from his Canton condo to a Ravens game via water taxi back in 2008, Patrick Sutton noticed a cluster of townhouses perched on the Patapsco.
“You get a different perspective when you see things from the water,” says Sutton, owner of Patrick Sutton Interior Design. “As we rounded the corner, I saw these big, beautiful, modern, glassy townhouses, and I said, ‘What’s that?’ They were...
Thank Stephanie Gamble’s mom for some of the touches in her Belvedere Square store.
Though she passed away nearly a decade ago, the lessons of Stephanie Gamble’s mother are reflected in nearly everything the designer does. “I got all my taste and appreciation of design from my mother,” says Gamble, who owns The House Downtown in Belvedere Square. “She was a single mom; it was just the two of us.”

Artist Lat Naylor shares the retro kitchen of his rehabbed 1870s Bolton Hill home.
Fixer-upper: When I moved in, there was a crack that started in the sub-basement and ran the entire height of the house. When it got to the top floors, the crack was more than one-foot wide.
Let’s party: This house had been a rooming house and one of three party houses for Maryland Institute College of Art in the ’70s. One of the students who lived here, Chul Hyun Ahn, lived in a back basement...

For more and more people, luxury apartment living beats the burdens of home ownership hands down.
When Tracy Nyce sold her 5,000-square-foot Lutherville home two years ago, she moved into a 1,700-square-foot rental unit in The Crescent, a high-end apartment complex in Fells Point, and never looked back.
“My house was on the market for almost two years and, in order to sell it, it ended up being a short sale,” she explains. “I said to myself, ‘There’s no way I’m buying another property.’ I...
