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.

A Cabinet of Curiosities

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

It’s the day after Mardi Gras and…

these photos of a modern day Cabinet of Curiosities published not too long ago in the Washington Post,

struck our attention.

Elizabeth Mayhew, who has written the article mentions, “One Parisian trend that has slowly been creeping into our own national aesthetic is an obsession with the natural world…They add visual interest to rooms, and they bring the outside in. However, such objects are a bland interpretation of what was recently on display at last month’s Maison & Objet

(the French equivalent to the U.S. design trade shows) and in the Paris flea markets.”

including butterflies, crustaceans, sea creatures, tortoiseshells….

We love it! And have been celebrating it for years!
