D.C. Design House

I just read the great article The Washington Post  published about this year's  
D.C. Design House

I can't get to D.C. to see it before it closes on May 8, but I hope my mom and aunt can get there and tell me all about it! 

The 1925 Tudor house is for sale:  $4.9 million

I loved (of course) the before and after photos, but I also loved reading about the design process -- the questions asked of the designers were to the point and informative.  Let's take a look inside!

 Welcome home!  The foyer BEFORE

The foyer AFTER (designed by Liz Levin)
That rug is awesome.

The living room BEFORE

The living room AFTER (designed by Patrick Sutton)
Nice, but I think I would've picked different chandeliers.  Maybe.

The Pool Room BEFORE
(I wonder what they did with those cool side tables?!)

The pool room AFTER (designer Erin Paige Pitts)
I'm not too crazy about this room -- especially the silly starfish hanging.

Master Bedroom Dressing Room BEFORE

Master Bedroom Dressing Room AFTER (designer Iantha Carly)
classic and pretty

The master bedroom BEFORE

The master bedroom AFTER (designer Iantha Carly)  I'll take it!!  This room reminds me of a refreshing citrus dessert.

The gentleman's bedroom BEFORE

The gentleman's bedroom AFTER (designer David Mitchell)  That plaid chair can take a hike, but the rug is yum!

Teenage bedroom BEFORE

Teenage bedroom AFTER (designer Samantha Friedman)
Orange and purple is looking quite fresh.  And symmetry is always a good thing in my book.

The dining room BEFORE

The dining room AFTER (designer Camille Saum)
Is that a moss covered mantle?!  I'd like to ditch those crosses.

The pool kitchen BEFORE

The pool kitchen AFTER (designer Nadia Subaran)
Love!  This might be my favorite of all the redesigns.

Taking into account the designers only had ONE MONTH to get these spaces together, what do you think?

And it was Jeannine at Small & Chic in C-Ville who let me know about the design house!
