D.C Design House. Every year top designers from the area are selected to design a home to raise funds for the Children's National Health System. This year there were 24 designers chosen for the 29 room home in NW D.C. This house was inspiring to tour and I took so many pictures for you that I will break up this post into two.
The almost 8,000 sq. foot stone home was built in 1929 by Marshall B. Coyne and family who owned the Madison Hotel in D.C and collected art and antiques.
As you enter the glossy turquoise front doors you see a beautiful painted checkerboard pattern entrance with a gorgeous three story staircase.
To the right, you enter the dining room designed by the talented Marika Meyer who incorporated symmetry with Chinoiserie motifs inspiration and plenty of pattern play that is quite sophisticated.
Aidan Designs. They incorporated a rich navy blue cabinetry with gold modern hardware. Even the radiator is gorgeous with the gold meshing and navy trim to cover it. And the gold modern chandelier is amazing!
Victoria Sanchez) enclosed it and used a lot of windows for the space. This neutral room has quite a bit of amazing pattern play in here. Even the ceiling was wallpapered with a light geometric design that matches with the window treatments.
Off the sun room is is an amazing custom gourmet kitchen, again by Aidan Designs. Burnished cherry cabinets hide the enormous refrigerator and freezers and gives a warm element to the room and look amazing with the dark soapstone counters. The back splash looks like marble, but it's porcelain marble look.
Don't even get me started on the landscaping- which is amazing! There is so much variety here- a pergola of your dreams, stone patio and pea gravel sitting area, pool and hot tub- you get the idea.
