The Washington Monument, built in honor of America's revolutionary hero and first president, is dedicated in Washington, D.C. The 555-foot-high marble obelisk was first proposed in 1783, and Pierre L'Enfant left room for it in his designs for the new U.S. capital. After George Washington's death in 1799, plans for a memorial for the "father of the country" were discussed, but were adopted until 1832--the centennial of Washington's birth.

Graphic patterns extend from the foyer in a Washington, D.C. town house through to the kitchen. "We both like snappy architectural solutions — like the patterned floor and striped wallpaper — that give black-tie panache to small spaces," designer Jeff Lincoln says of the house he designed with Hillary Thomas. The black and white of Montgomery 1 marble floor tiles by Ann Sacks and Block Print Stripe wallpaper by Farrow & Ball is reminiscent of Dorothy Draper.
