About the DC Design House

The Washington, DC Design House, a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity, began in 2008 as a unique design show house event for the DC Metro area in which top area designers showcased their talents into a “flowing design home” to raise funds for a local charity. What began as a single event goal to raise funds for Children’s National Medical Center has developed into the region’s foremost annual residential design attraction and as a leading annual fundraiser event for Children’s National Medical Center. Established by Skip and Debbie Singleton, Sandra Steele, and Taylor Wells in partnership with an all volunteer team of sponsors, organizers, regional media, design industry manufacturers and some of the nation’s most awarded and widely recognized designers. The DC Design House quickly earned a following with more than 55,000 visitors and more than $1 million raised for Children’s National Medical Center over the last six years. The tradition will continue with the 2014 DC Design House. For more information, visit www.dcdesignhouse.com, Facebook and Twitter.
