It’s that time of year again! The DC Design House is now open to the public! If you are unfamiliar with the DC Design House, then read on (if you are familiar, keep reading too!). Every year a home is built by a local residential contractor, and each room inside is decorated by a designer. At the end of the entire Design Show Tour, the home is sold for purchase. Many cities around the nation do this, and I think its a great idea!
The house features 24 designers, ranging from interiors to landscape to contractors. Each ticket costs $25, which is good for one entrance tour of the home. Tours run from Tuesday-Friday 10am-3pm and Saturday-Sunday 12-5pm. This year, the proceeds will benefit the Children’s National Medical Center. Hurry, you only have until May 12th!
Here is a floor plan of the overall home. This plan is also available for pdf download by clicking here. The home is fully designed with some amazing, out-of-this-world spaces, include a seriously large master suite and dressing area (also including a spacious sitting area), a third floor ‘away room’, and an open terrace complete with a loggia. I don’t know about you, but after seeing all these amazing amenities, I am grabbing my tickets and taking a tour!
If you can’t stand to wait any further, check out this blog post by Jennifer Sargent of DC by Design for a sneak peak of some of the interiors! (Thanks Jennifer for sharing this post)!
If you have toured in the past, or are going to purchase a ticket to this year’s tour, let us know! We would love to hear your thoughts of your house! Who knows, maybe I will be a designer one year (it is a secret dream for me ).
