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 business partners and husband-and-wife founders Skip and Debbie Singleton, Principals of DC Living Real Estate, LLC, 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 45,000 visitors and more than $800,000 raised for Children’s National Medical Center over the last five years. The tradition continues with the 2013 DC Design House. For more information, visit www.dcdesignhouse.com, Facebook and Twitter.
