More than a terrace - Andrew Law's refined and sophisticated space is an outdoor living room worthy of this historic home. Andrew removed some less-than stellar elements (dropped ceiling, ceiling fan) and added to the architectural elements with beams and a wonderful washed paint treatment on the ceiling. Love these klismos chairs and the faux bois table.
The antique Swedish stone eagle is from Tone on Tone in Bethesda and serves as a focal point for the terrace. He is a character in his own right and I just couldn't resist posting a second picture of him.


Basha White commissioned custom furniture maker Keith Fritz to create this gorgeous, round dining table. His pieces are destined to become family heirlooms. Formerly of DC, Keith's firm is located in Indiana and he personally delivers his pieces to clients. I love that the claw feet and casters are in a silver finish.
Nestor Santa-Cruz's reception room is hip and traditional at the same time. The faux painted stone treatment on the walls and the eclectic mix of furnishings give a real European feel to the space.

Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey brought a fresh,updated look to the large entry and stairwell area.
When you visit the showhouse be sure not to miss the garage conversion by Lynni Megginson - it's now a virtual golf room complete with an outdoor putting green. Even if you'll never set up an electronic fairway in your home, Lynni's space is a multi-purpose entertaining/game room full of ideas. (virtualgolfgirl at me . com)
There's still more rooms to see at the DC Design House - Emily Bishop's Deck and Patio, Sarah Wessel's Sun Room, Barry Dixon's conservatory, Victoria Sanchez's Library and the kitchen by Rosi Kallivokas of Clive Christian.
The house is open April 10 - May 9 and tickets are only $20. The money raised supports The Children's Hospital. For more information about the DC Design House here. Have a great weekend!
