District Home Magazine – October 2013
District Home: How did you get started in the business?
André Sabbagh: Seventeen years ago I opened my company with the help of my wife. It was her idea to move forward and get started so we used the letters of our names T for Tara, A for André and S for Sabbagh TAS Interiors to name the company. I had several clients that had urged me to go on my own and that is how it started.
DH: What else do you do that is special?
AS: We have a full interior design service specializing in kitchen and bath.
DH: Did you ever see yourself in design?
AS: I have always enjoyed the idea of design and I love what I do.
DH: Why are your baths unique? What’s special about your craft?
AS: My approach to designing a bath has always been less is more and I used a more transitional style that is soothing and relaxed. I apply the golden rule in designing a bath and that is “functionality.” We use the latest in technologies and materials.

A Fruitful Renovation

Home & Design Magazine – January/February 2007
In the hallway leading to the basement space, André Sabbagh created a new cove ceiling covered in Venetian plaster. It all started when a light fixture over a Rockville couple’s pool table broke. They asked their friend, interior designer André Sabbagh, for advice on whether to fix it or buy a new one. This launched a discussion about what they thought the lower level of their home should ultimately look like. Sabbagh had some exciting ideas. So exciting, in fact, that the homeowners decided to embark on a full-scale renovation that would create a one-of-a-kind billiard room, wine cellar and plush new home theater.
In the original space, stairs led down to the basement and into a stark hallway with an existing wine room on the left and a spare room on the right. The hall culminated at a bar overlooking the billiard room. The décor consisted of white walls and dull wall-to-wall carpeting.
Sabbagh’s goal was to create a refined, personalized space that would reflect his clients’ style. “This is a home, not a pub,” he explains. “We wanted to make it elegant. The intention was to give it the coziness of an Old World feel combined with the quality of today’s finishes.”
The wife, whose father and grandfather were both winemakers, asked Sabbagh to integrate two large wine barrels made by her father into the design. So he designed custom cabinetry that encompasses the barrels as well as additional wine storage. Then he created a cozy seating area in front of the cabinetry where the homeowners and their guests can enjoy a bottle of wine or play a game of cards.

What could be more romantic than a bedroom on the beach? Shells and sea glass have gathered in the corners and the mural-painted wall offers a wrap-around view. This space reflects some of the same elements as the adjacent living room that Sabbagh and Mary Mitchell designed together: colors that whisper, mirrors and crystal that shimmer. But more spare and restful, the bedroom brings the outdoors in thanks to its nearly monochromatic color scheme—an updated tribute to traditional by the designers—and the use of a variety of textures in the smooth upholstery and tactile accents. There’s more romance in the windows draped in gauzy fabric, the French doors presumably leading to a private sandy beach and the glorious sweep of a bed frame flanked by gilded and mirrored side tables. The result is a getaway that’s relaxed and inviting.
