DC Design House Opens Doors.

I have yet to attend this years DC Design House, hosted at “Wirelawn” in Chevy Chase, Maryland, but my good friend Carole who lives on Tunlaw Street in Washington, DC is raving about it! Today’s grand brick country house was built in 1905 for Mr. and Mrs. Worthington Ford as a small stucco home on land purchased from the Chevy Chase Land Company. Since that time, the mansion was given the name of “Wirelawn”, played host the 1974 NSO Showhouse, and now welcomes twenty-two amazing local interior designers, decorators, and landscape designers as the host site of the 2010 DC Design House to benefit Children’s National Medical Center. The designs work beautifully with the architecture and the sheer scale of this southern Maryland retreat. I would love to have a shot at one of those rooms next year! =0)
