it's a glorious day..

..to stop by the DC Design House!

From a turquoise-themed front entry by Rill Architects..

..to a checkerboard-floored orange, fuschia and chartruese entry hall by the 
oh-so-chic Camille Saum, this year's Design House does not disappoint.

Marika Meyer's dining room is a feast for the eyes.  Imperial Trellis-backed dining chairs draw visitors to a table bedecked in ikat plates and adorned with pagodas and a variety of animal figurines. 


 Gasp!  Malachite console tables..and porcelain elephants!

So far, Nadia Subaran's "wine room" is the leading favorite in the house..and ICDC agrees. Gorgeous shimmering herringbone floors and gray-blue cabinets with brass hardware? 
Yes, please!


A rope wall and climbing equipment would make this kid's den the envy of any neighborhood!

Nestor Santa-Cruz wows us again this year with a pale wood library.. 

What child wouldn't want to imagine being under-the-sea while showering?!

There are only two weeks left to see the beauty within the DC Design House.  Stop by!  Proceeds go to the Children's National Medical Center.
