This past Saturday was the Bare Bones tour of the upcoming DC Design House and it left me very excited for the soon-to-be unveiled final results (April 13 - May 12, 2013) Set in a new construction home with well proportioned rooms and scale, there will be 24 spaces - so to keep it manageable I'll be doing a 3 part post over the next two weeks. First up is the morning room by Iantha Carly with a striking patterned Phillip Jeffries wall covering for the walls and a line-up of gorgeous fabrics in rich hues. The Kravet Couture plaid is my favorite and will be covering a midcentury chair, love it!
You may remember designer Susan Jamieson of Bridget Beari from my post on her faux agate walls in the Richmond Show House. Susan has a chic master bedroom with soothing colors (including paint from her own collection)and strong lines planned. Notice the antiqued mirror panels on either side of the bed and the repetition of the geometric shapes.
Victoria Neal is creating a sophisticated family room filled with texture and a mix of furnishings. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing the coffee table in person.
Charles Almonte will be boosting the classic elements of this Powder Room (space #10 - this house has 2 first floor powder rooms) to a whole other level with Farrow & Ball lotus wallpaper and strong accents of pink through accessories. Should be one of those spaces that make you feel and look better just by being in it.
Andrea Houck is tackling the Side Hall and Bar. Forget the existing granite and say hello to new onyx counters, faux painted walnut cabinets and a stunning pendant fixture.
Two more Bare Bones posts to follow in the next week or so. The DC Design House benefits Children's National Medical Center, for more information head here.
