A Preview of Spaces 7, 8, 9, & 10 at the 2012 DC Design House

This is the Third of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

For Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey of SCW Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.scwinteriors.com, being included as one of the designers in the 2012 DC Design House is “the most prestigious invitation for a designer.” But it also means sprinting to the finish line. “Being selected to design for the showhouse is a bit like being crowned homecoming queen then having to run a marathon in your ball gown while collecting items for a scavenger hunt,” Cavin-Winfrey says. It’s also one of the highlights of one’s career, she notes.

Showhouse veteran Kelley Proxmire of Kelley Interior Design in Bethesda, MD, www.kelleyinteriordesign.com, who has participated in 21 showhouses over the past 11 years, says it’s still exciting to be selected. “I really feel honored to be a part of this fundraising event,” Proxmire says. “Children’s National Medical Center is a very deserving organization and should hopefully receive much needed funds from the DC Design House.”

New Nike Shoes Being Sold On eBay For $60,000

New Nike Shoes Being Sold On eBay For $60,000

UPDATE: This eBay listing has been removed from auction.

It's long been rumored that basketball abilities are linked to what kind of shoes players wear.

From my experiences, though, that is incorrect: I was 5'9" and couldn't jump before I put on the old school Allen Iverson-inspired Reebok "Answers", and I was also 5'9" and couldn't jump after I put on the old school Allen Iverson-inspired Reebok "Answers".

These days I stick to soccer.

Anyway, you get the point: People love basketball shoes and we all know some people are willing to pay a hefty pricetag to get their hands on the brand new Nike Whatevers.

It's all well and good to spend a hundred or two hundred bucks on your favorite shoe...but $60,000?!

That's seems to be a bit much.
