For anyone in the DC area who was interested in going to the DC Design House to support Children’s Hospital, this is the last weekend to do it!


{the desk view of room I designed.  Painting in the photo by John Matthew Moore, desk by Edelman Leather, Chair from John Rosselli Antiques, lamp by Stray Dog Designs, sisal rug by Stark, and grasscloth wallpaper by Seabrooke.}

I’ve had such an amazing time getting to know the other designers & the supporters of Children’s Hospital,  making some wonderful new friends!  I’ll never forget this experience.  The stories I’ve heard about children whose lives have been saved by Children’s Hospital are incredible & moving.  So if you do have the chance today or tomorrow, head on over!!

I won’t be there today (I have pink eye from my 3 year old- arrggg!!) but am hoping it clears up by tomorrow so that I can be there on the final day.

Also,  Better Homes & Gardens Magazine is coming to shoot the room on Monday!  I’ll be sure to take some behind-the-scenes pictures to post this week.
