Washington, D.C. is well known for monuments and memorials, but what about interiors? Certainly, people praise buildings like the U.S. Capitol, Francis A. Gregory Library, and Arena Stage for their stunning facades, but what about what’s going on in the inside?

Some of the best interiors can be found in the Metro system, the Library of Congress, and a variety of luxury hotels. The White House is also well known for its beautiful rooms and furnishings. But which interiors are your favorite?
