Housetours in Washington DC this weekend -don't miss them!

Just in time for Christmas this upcoming weekend (Dec 6 & 7, 2014) are 2 great housetours benefiting great causes in both my old and new neighborhoods in Washington, Cleveland Park and Logan Circle (home to our new design center). The first tour (Dec 5 & 6) benefits the St. Albans school and features 6 amazing homes in historic Cleveland Park. One of these houses was recently featured in Elle Decor magazine decorated by local talent Darryl Carter. Tickets are $40 and information on picking them up is HERE.
The second house tour takes place in my former neighborhood of Logan Circle. This tour always features a fascinating variety of city living from modern loft-like apartments to historic townhouses.Tickets are $30 and benefit the neighborhood historical society and walking trail. Information on purchasing tickets is HERE.  Hope to see you at both of these great events this weekend!

Parisian stair railing

While I sort through the 500 photos I took over my recent trip to Paris I thought I would share with you a great staircase I saw in an art gallery (I believe in the 17th).  Why is it that the best railings never meet US code? Not sure if I loved the red color or the balustrade pattern better!
