A Preview of Spaces 17, 18 & 19 at the 2012 DC Design House

A Preview of Spaces 17, 18 & 19 at the 2012 DC Design House

 

This is the Sixth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

The top floor of the Fifth Annual DC Design House includes three spaces. Susan Nelson of Susan Nelson Interiors of Great Falls, VA, www.susannelsoninteriors.com, is designing Space 17, the Daughter’s Bedroom. By combining block and geometric prints in green, yellow, pink, brown and cream, Nelson creates a cozy haven. “By using a mix of new and repurposed furniture, the room has a quality of changing along with the girl,” Nelson says. For instance, the coverlet features a sophisticated fabric with a watercolor quality, while the club chair is slipcovered in a fun confetti print in pinks and purples that the “daughter” might have loved as a child.

This is the Fourth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

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.
