The 2015 DC Design House will open from April 11 to May 10

The eighth annual DC Design House will showcase the work of more than 20 local designers in a new, 8,870-square-foot, farmhouse-style residence in McLean. Designed by Harrison Design and built by Artisan Builders, this will be the first DC

Design House in Virginia. “It’s a shot of adrenaline for us,” comments the organization’s co-founder, Skip Singleton, of the fresh locale. “A host of new designers has shown interest. Now we’ll have been in three jurisdictions.”

The home, pictured here, is located at 956 Mackall Farm Lane. During Bare Bones day on February 28, visitors can see the spaces and designers’ concept boards before the transformation begins. The house will be open for tours from April 11 to May 10. Proceeds benefit Children’s National Health System; admission is $25. dcdesignhouse.com
