A Preview of Spaces 11, 12 & 13 at the 2012 DC Design House

This is the Fourth 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.

Designers are mixing new and old in this year’s DC Design House to give the spacious home warmth and character. For instance, Sharon Kleinman of Transitions in Potomac, MD, http://www.4transitions.com, designed a custom bench for Space 11, the Master Bedroom. “I use modern pieces such as the custom bench with acrylic base and combine it with an antique black lacquer wedding chest,” says Kleinman, who is thrilled to be able to use her work as an interior designer to support such a wonderful cause.

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.
