DC Design House
… One of my favorite outings every fall in the DC area is the annual DC Design House. The designer decorated showhouse, now in its tenth year, is one of the most popular and successful fundraising events for Children’s National Hospital System. Children’s National, one of the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the country, holds a special place in my heart. The hospital has served our nation’s children since 1870. All three of my sons have benefitted from the incredible work at Children’s National and I will always be grateful for their expertise and innovative care.
I love touring designer decorated showhouses – there is always a takeaway, always something that inspires me. And I’m happy to say, I have a perfect attendance record for this event – I’ve been to all ten houses. Today, I was fortunate to be invited to Press Preview Day for this year’s DC Design House. (Thank you, Moki Media!). The showhouse, a 27,000 square foot home in Potomac, will be open to the public from September 30th to October 29th. Here are a few photos from the day – a more in-depth post is in the works!
