A Preview of Spaces 21, 22 & 23 at the 2012 DC Design House

This is the Eighth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is now open through May 13th. The DC Design House benefits Children's National Medical Center.

Victoria Sanchez of Victoria Sanchez Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.victoriasanchezinteriors.com, was inspired by her own children for the design of Space 21, the Teenager’s Getaway. “I looked to their likes and dislikes, and their wants and desires as I created this design,” says Sanchez, who is excited to part of the Design House but also knows the amount of work that had to be completed in a short period of time.

For the second year in a row, Nadia Subaran of Aidan Design in Bethesda, MD, www.aidandesign.com, is part of the DC Design House. “It’s truly an honor,” Subaran says. “I feel very grateful to be in the company of so many fine designers.” Last year, Subaran designed the Pool Kitchen and this year took on the much larger main Kitchen in this Spring Valley home.

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.
