The 2017 DC Design House is 35 Days, 23 Designers, four Boutiques, and one Great Cause.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The DC Design House — a unique design show house event in which top area designers showcase their talents — this year’s event goes above and beyond at a $10.48 million estate by Fouad Talout and Pascale Karam of Long & Foster Real Estate.
If you ever wanted to consider new and novel ideas for the home, you’ll find it here, touring 23 beautifully-designed spaces and four boutiques.
The four-story, 27,256 square-foot Potomac home includes nine bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, four half baths, lower level ballroom, a cinema, a two-story library flanked by his and hers offices, multiple kitchens, and an elevator. Built in 2009, the home sits on two acres and includes a pool and pool house with apartment and covered terrace. This year’s Design House is dedicated to Ann Lambeth, who was an avid supporter of the cause and the design community.
Open Saturday, September 30 through Sunday, October 29, 2017, special events include a Decade of Design celebration on Thursday, September 28 from 6-9 p.m. as well as special events throughout the month in the home’s ballroom… and new this year, a daily onsite cafe by Relish Catering.
Tickets are a worthy $35. 100% of money raised from ticket sales — as well as a portion of proceeds from boutiques and designer sales, with most items in designers’ spaces available to purchase — are donated to Children’s National. More than $1.78 million has been raised in the past nine years!
Hours: Saturday–Sunday 12-5 p.m.; Closed Mondays; Tuesday–Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
