In 2002, June Crenshaw purchased a condo in Northwest Washington, D.C., to help alleviate her long commute from Frederick, MD. She currently lives in a 78-year-old building in Bloomingdale, a vibrant neighborhood of two- and three-story row houses.

“I love the energy of D.C. and the pedestrian vibe, and I now live here mostly full time,” says Crenshaw. “It is a fun, hip place to live and has great energy. There is always something to do for all ages, whether you are single, a couple, or have a family.”

When Crenshaw purchased her home, she had a clear vision of the impression that she wanted to convey, which happened quite organically for her. She intentionally decorated her one-bedroom condo with high-energy colors and Afrocentric artwork that expresses her appreciation for the beauty of the female body. Among these pieces are prints and sculptures of intertwined women.

“I surrounded myself with things that make me feel happy and that I love,” explains Crenshaw. “My space definitely shows my appreciation for the beauty of feminine energy.”

A busy project manager and a committed LGBTQ activist, Crenshaw values the peaceful time spent on her couch. She now stays in her D.C. home more than in her Maryland residence.
