What We Expect From This Year’s DC Design House

This year’s DC Design House is sure to impress. The home was recently used as a temporary residence for the French Ambassador. With seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, five fireplaces, and an infinity pool, there is a lot of room for the DC area’s top designers to work. Every inch of the house has been taken over by a designer that is well-known throughout the area. Even the laundry room will have its modern design done by Allie Mann from Case Design. Are you wondering what each of the rooms will look like? We have some ideas based on the previous work done by each of the designers.

The porch and garden have been designed by none other than Blake Dunlevy from D & A Dunlevy Landscapers. From them, we expect to see a clean, modern look with excellent craftsmanship and floral designs. D&A Dunlevy is best known for their high-end landscaping services in Bethesda, Kensington, and Georgetown. They are pleased to service the Maryland and DC areas.

Upon entering the house, you will immediately see the amazingly bright entryway, hall, and stairway. This area was designed by Eve Fay with Farrow & Ball. We are expecting to see an open space with attention to small details. We might expect to see a large mirror to make the space look larger and an accent table with small decorations.

Pamela Harvey will be designing the living room, and we expect nothing less than perfection from her. Pamela focuses on making areas look sophisticated and glamorous, but she also makes sure to keep things functional. We did happen to get a sneak peek at the room design, and you should expect to see some kelly green accents in the living room.

Lena Kroupnik’s beautifully designed powder room will put any DC area apartment’s bathroom to shame. The classic design in this room will make you feel like you are a princess living in a castle. From flowers to make the room feel pretty to beautiful light fixtures, every detail has been attended to in this small room.

Victoria Sanchez had the pleasure of designing the master suite, and this suite will have you feeling like the master of the world. Looking at her design ideas, you may feel like you are floating away on a cloud. The room looks luxurious, comfortable, and oh so peaceful. The pale blue and white color scheme will surely have you dreaming of pleasant things at night.

These are just some of the designs we are expecting from the 2016 DC Design House this fall. To see how the designs turned out, you will have to visit the Design House from October 1-30. All proceeds go to the Children’s National Health System, so you can feel good as you dream about living in this fantastic house.
