Designers are mixing new and old in this year’s DC Design House to give the spacious home warmth and character. For instance, Sharon Kleinman of Transitions in Potomac, MD, http://www.4transitions.com, designed a custom bench for Space 11, the Master Bedroom. “I use modern pieces such as the custom bench with acrylic base and combine it with an antique black lacquer wedding chest,” says Kleinman, who is thrilled to be able to use her work as an interior designer to support such a wonderful cause.
