Hello Bloggers! This is so exciting!
Ok, I'm Cate and I'm the GB (guest blogger) that lives in Georgetown! I’m moving next month so I have been stalking home decor websites and buying every flippin' DIY magazine out there for the past few months and have come to realize that I may be obsessed. Which is probably why my mother (who’s wonderful taste I hope to inherit) introduced me to the DC Home Design House.
With 22 rooms each decorated by a different designer, it really brought to my attention the impact a space can have on your mood. For example, the conservatory was filled with iron tables, hide rugs, with multiple fabrics and intricate decorative treatments which, while incredibly beautiful, made me feel anxious and hectic. But the master bedroom was incredibly soothing… with open windows, crisp tan and white colors, beautiful mirrors, and simple, high-quality furniture.
I’m a planner and I usually know exactly what I want, but it occurred to me after visiting the DC Design House that I had no idea what I wanted in a home (probably because I won’t own a home for a few years…). So now I've basically put together my ideal home (and ideal family??).. take a look!
