This Local Design Pro Has A Fairy-Tale Home (That Isn’t Disney-fied)

We imagine that being an interior designer is one of the coolest creative jobs around. After all, your mission is to make a home beautiful, and you're continuously inspired to dress up your own pad — how cool is that?
Well, we can show you exactly how cool. Apartment Therapy has a photo tour of local designer Barbara Franceski's to-die-for Old Town Alexandria townhouse, and her mastery of shabby-chic decor proves us right. We're especially envious of her dreamy bedroom and the eclectic collection of ceramic birds and decorative plates — can't you just envision yourself taking the most luxurious of naps in this soothing (but still glam) setting? Now, tell us what you think of Barbara's aesthetic — and her fairy-tale abode — in the comments. (Apartment Therapy)
