Design House for Children’s National

I was glad to wander upon this quick video of DC’s Design House,

which was recently renovated and decorated by 29 designers and design firms.

The proceeds benefit Children’s National Health System.

We recently had a personal medical experience with our youngest adult son’s surgery regarding an issue he has had since childhood.

Although Children’s is a large facility and you can easily feel like a number in comparison to smaller medical hospitals, it was very impressive. We had state of the art care and  felt like we were in good hands throughout.

My personal favorite was how Joanne Fitzgerald of Gatéga Interior Design not only used dramatic wallpaper in a small space,

as did Camille Saum throughout the entry (3 stories high), but Fitzgerald

turned strip mosaic tile on the vertical to surprise the senses at the sink in a small bathroom.

What an innovated way to use!

This reminds me of a tiny treasured jewel box.

The DC Design House is open for a month for public viewing and benefiting this worthy cause through May 13.

Furniture with Flair

Will you be going to High Point this coming weekend (April 5 – 10th)?

High Point Market is a great way to see what’s new in great design.

If so, you may want to take a look at Charlotte Moss’ new collection for Century Furniture.

It has stately, traditional and clean-lined, timeless pieces that embody a ‘flair for living’.

It’s fitting that all of the pieces use famous Southern Cities as their namesake, like the New Orleans Dining Chair,

Where French heritage meets Southern hostess”…and designed for comfort to let guests linger around the dining table.

Charlotte ‘attributes her southern heritage as the most significant contributor to her own personal style.

The Baton Rouge Bunching Table has modern lines with antique brass capped feet. It can be used in multiples as a practical and decorative accent piece.

A little whimsy can be fun especially when used to exemplify pairings between his and her furniture

This Louisville Chest demonstrates a man is ‘His’ castle.

And a lady might be known for her wardrobe, as seen in the Her Louisville Chest.

Click here to see the details of the entire line and to see more on the Century website and regarding Charlotte Moss as one of their Icon designers.

We’ve always been so impressed with Charlotte Moss’ style and approach to interior design and what she’s been able to achieve.

You’ll see her work just about anywhere.

Her china was just featured in this month’s Veranda magazine and she’s done tremendous work for multiple worthwhile charities.

 What we value too is her appreciation of how art can influence design.
