Inns in DC Washington DC Bed and Breakfast bed and breakfast dc

At DC Inns we collect and display art created by our guests!

Art & Paintings

We love art and the artists who grace our lives with their creativity. Since we opened our B&B’s, we have been building a collection of original works of art … paintings, pastels, glass, and decorative ironwork. This is not the fastest way to fill the walls and niches of our Washington DC bed and breakfast inns, but we would rather take the time to find original works of art than to display corporate art which, in our opinion,  is sort of like SPAM in your inbox.

The DC INNS collection is unusual because almost all of our artwork is done by our guests. Heather Craig, Beto Rossi, Justina Selinger, Maria Consoli Ianzito, Shoshanna Ahart, Louise Link Rath, Mada Leach and Dean Evans are among the artists and craftsmen whose work adorns the guest houses – and they are almost all repeat guests and good friends!

Additional pieces from Laura and Raymond’s personal collection, including a glorious painted cape by Washington artist Sam Gilliam and pottery by renowned ceramist Harvey Sadow are part of the Embassy Circle collection.



Crafts & Beautiful Objects

Washington DC Bed and BreakfastsA natural extension of our love of art is our love of beautiful hand-crafted objects, both modern and antique. Our B&B’s are filled with antique Persian carpets with color palettes that rival the rainbow. Fine hand-crafted furniture for sitting, sleeping, eating and writing; sparkling glass, warm wood and fanciful decorative ironwork all have their places of honor in our DC guest houses.
