Don't miss the 2014 DC Design House, open April 13 to May 11

Design Inspiration Twenty-nine design firms will transform this year’s DC Design House, a nearly-8,000-square-foot estate built in 1929 in DC’s Forest Hills neighborhood. The stately stone home features six bedrooms and five full and two half-baths, along with such original architectural elements as crown moldings, trim, wood flooring and built-in cabinetry.

This year’s designers are Camille Saum, Marika Meyer, Nadia Subaran, Victoria Sanchez, Joanne Fitzgerald, Jeff Akseizer and Jamie Brown, Naseera Moore-Lawrence and Nicolette Powell, Katherine Vernot-Jonas, Tracy Morris, Nestor Santa-Cruz, Kelley Proxmire, Susan Donelson and Sharon Bubenhofer, Allie Mann, Dennese Guadeloupe-Rojas and Diane Taitt, Cindy McClure, Nancy Colbert, Deborah Broockerd, Chad Alan, Melissa McLay, TJ Monahan, Cheryl Lynn Doyle and Anne Wenzel, Beth Boggs of C2 Paint, Christopher Cahill and architects Jim Rill and David Benton. Landscape designers include Blake Dunlevy and Gina Benincasa and Stephen Wlodarczyk.

A barebones tour on March 1st allows visitors to see the house prior to its transformation. Public tours begin on April 13. Admission is $25 and proceeds benefit the Children’s National Medical Center; lower-level boutiques will donate a portion of their proceeds to the same cause. The home is located at 4600 Linnean Way, NW. dcdesignhouse.com
