Harrison Design architects, the house resembles a typical Virginian farmhouse which has been added onto over the generations. The multiple volumes help to mask the large size of the structure.
The best room in the house is done by my friend, designer Michael Hampton. Don't just take my biased word for it, Architectural Digest prominently included it in their line up and most media coverage has featured the below image by photographer Angie Seckinger as their lead photo.Artisan Builds of Mclean) and develop many of the details of the house which may be one of the reasons the fit-out and detailing found in the house is so well done.

Christopher Patrick. Christopher has a real talent for mixing the best of modern design and antiques to make a room stylish and lived in. These are the types of rooms in which people want to spend time! The Benjamin Moore wallcolor was especially great and I plan on copying it soon in my own bedroom. Notice too that much of the artwork are architectural watercolors by Michael Hampton!
Lobkovich kitchen design. Notice the leg details on the island -beautiful! I think they'll be getting a lot of calls from people for work on their own kitchens.
There is still time to visit the DC Design House, open until May 10, 2015 in McLean Virginia. Don't miss seeing it all for yourself!
