People will be able to shop and eat at numerous places along the street including Brewers Art, Homeslyce, Mick O’Sheas, Aloha Sushi and Tapas Teatro, the partnership said in a news release. Mount Vernon Place will also offer free fitness classes.

Designer Charles Almonte’s favorite classic picks from Crate & Barrel

“Crate & Barrel is one of my first go-tos, especially if it’s a budget-friendly project,” Almonte said. “It’s not the cheapest, but it’s not the most expensive. It’s a good middle ground, and a lot of people feel comfortable with the price point and style.”

He also advises people to take stock of their existing pieces and look at editing out things that don’t work in their space. (Looking at you, papasan chair from college.)

“Sometimes you don’t need to overhaul things. Sometimes you just need to move things around and clean up a bit,” he said.

With that in mind, his picks are classic pieces that will work in most spaces or with most design styles. Pair one or two items with what you already have. You’ll be surprised by what a difference a new accent chair or statement lamp can make.

Almonte said he loves “the simple elegance”
