The new DC Design Center

In need of hands-on versus online inspiration for upcoming projects, I headed to the DC Design Center in Washington last Friday. It opened recently in a new location and has it's own designated parking garage, which is A MUST in DC.  You can go as a Visitor if you can't get a Trade Pass, so check it out!

Here are some highlights:

There are amazing lighting and furnishings at J. Lambeth, beautiful wallpapers from Phillip Jeffries (like this high gloss rafia) at Holly Hunt, a fabulous showroom sample sale going on now at American Eye featuring one of my favorite Lee Industries leather chairs, and lots of gorgeous carpet and area rugs at Stark.  

Stay tuned for the WDC:

You can check out the events at the WDC and I hope you'll join me there on March 18th!
There are fabulous designers in attendance like Charlotte Moss, Amanda Nisbet, Vicente Wolf, Eileen Kathryn Boyd, with lovely luncheons, book signings and love of new lines unveiled. 
Will I see you there?


  1. Nancy, I wish I could be there for the grand opening. A stellar lineup of designers and so many great finds.
