DC Design House teaser

Last week I attended a preview of the DC Design House which is located on Foxhall Road. Before I bring you my favorite rooms, I thought I would bring you some fun ideas from Designer Regan Billingsley.
Generally bathrooms in design houses are either filled with loud wallpaper, passed over, or simply left with the door closed.  However, Billingsley made it a prominent feature of her Teenage Boys Room.  The black painted doors were highlighted with the sides painted a bright red. That pop of color with the door open was amazing!  I also loved the message she put on the wall backwards only legible in the mirror "Don't grow up, it's a trap".  Wise words from a clever designer! More tomorrow......

I love the touch of red given to the side of the door. It makes people would want to open up the doors more as compared to wanting to just shut the doors and make the area less homely. I think the idea is so simple but the effect it has on the door is huge. I would try that concept onto my storage cabinets where the row of red could be popping out when i pull out my drawers. That would be so interesting.
