2013 DC Design House Tour

Thursday, April 11, 2013


Yep, that's a Playboy peeking out. Gotta love Regan's cheekiness in the teenage boy's bedroom.

As promised from yesterday's short post, here are more photos that I took from the DC Design House Press Day. These were some of my favorite spaces and moments in the entire house, and I hope it inspires you to purchase a ticket to tour the house for such an amazing cause, the Children's National Medical Center.


FYI, this is right across from the boy's bathroom mirror.


Even before I walked into the master bedroom, I was in awe of the space. Susan, from Bridget Beari Designs, Inc., designed an extremely luxurious space that is an absolute dream to be in.


This photo doesn't even do this space justice. Scott, from Scott Cooke Design, created a grand yet accessible lower level dining space. Stunning, truly stunning.


Looove.

One of my favorite moments in the entire house is right in the Morning Room by Iantha Carley Interiors. The modern over-scaled painting gives the room an edginess and balances out the room from being too sweet and sunny.


The Phillip Jeffries jute wallcovering is everything in this room. And how perfect is that chair?


This Master Bathroom, designed by Darlene Molnar, is beautifully curated like a gallery. And yes, those are tv's in the mirrors. Amaaazing.


Light and airy but has warmth. Very sophisticated but not in a stuffy way. A very much approachable way.


At first I somehow missed the Living Room, by Camille Saum, and am SO glad I saw it before I left. She had artwork in there that was amazing but alas my photos of it didn't do it justice so you'll just have to go see it in person.


The moment I saw the wallpaper, I was hooked. The powder room, created by Charles C. Almonte, is what I want my powder room to be: statement-making and glamorous.


Lorna of Savant Interior Design created this dramatic yet cozy lounge. She did something I've never seen before and that is she had fabric trimming the walls but they were dotted with large nailheads. Such a great way to add visual interest and texture to the space, no?


Another great vignette.

Met Nancy and Stacey, the lovely ladies of Finnian's Moon Interiors. Absolutely loooved the gender-neutral nursery they designed.


How adorable is this gallery wall? And can we please talk about the wall color?? It's Charleston Gray by Farrow & Ball, if you're wondering.


The Loft/Media Room was the first space I saw and it just blew me away. Jeff and Jamie of Akseizer Design Group nailed this room. I just wanted to plop on the sofa and relax the day away.


Jessica Parker, of GTM Architects, designed the open and airy Kitchen & Butler's Pantry. Gorgeous, right? Simple, polished, and welcoming.


That light fixture (made out of real twigs!) is everything.


To think I almost missed out on seeing the Library by David Mitchell! This was my last stop before I left the Design House and I might be bold enough to say that it could be my favorite space in the entire house...I had a blast chatting with David. He is a hoot and so much fun to talk with!


His space is definitely a slight break from the rest of the house, in that it is more on the masculine side. And I usually don't go for masculine, but after looking at all of the other spaces, it was so refreshing to be in space that was so different than the others.


One of the best parts of the day was that I unexpectedly got to meet (in person) fellow bloggers that I have been following. Nancy & Bethany of Powell Bower Home, and Kerry of Design du Monde were the fun bloggers that I met at Press Day. It was so lovely meeting them in person since we've all been following each others' blogs for some time now. I also got to meet for the first time, Desiré of Sukio. She's got a great blog and I am definitely a new follower of hers now.

    1. I'm wishing for that too, haha! You are going to love this house - it's insanely gorgeous! It felt like more of a museum than a house though, just bc of how huge it is.

  3. How does the Design House work? Is it an empty house that's on the market? Do they leave everything for the owners after the event?

    1. So I'm not sure if the new owners get to keep everything (a really good question and I feel like I should know the answer) but the house is new, built by GTM Architects and is on the market for $14.9m, eek! Let me see if I can find out about the new owners keeping everything and let you know what I find out ;)
