Design on a Dime – Shop Over 60 Designers to Benefit 1 Charity

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

You can now shop room vignettes created by 60 top interior designers stocked with items 50 – 70% off retail, all to benefit a worthy cause.

We are so honored to be a part of Design on a Dime’s 10th Anniversary benefit for Housing Works, supporting the homeless living with HIV and AIDS.

You can find Casart Butterflies in designer, Arlene Angard’s room used as part of her Royal Peace theme and separately for sale.

As Arlene said, “The theme ” Royal Peace” will go very classical, chic and comfortable through the room. It will be magical…”

We cannot wait to see the results (!) and will post at a later date.

This is the place to get not only deals and steals but fabulous, fun ideas while knowing you’re contributing to helping others. Just look at last year’s video.

See Editor at Large interviews with Genevieve Gorder and Mr. Novagratz  goes shopping with his kids.

Design House for Children’s National

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

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.
