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 Health System has developed into the region’s foremost annual residential design attraction and as a leading annual fundraiser event for Children’s National Health System. 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 has quickly earned a following with more than 80,000 visitors and more than $1.78 million raised for Children’s National Health System over the last nine years. The tradition continues with the 2017 DC Design House.
DC Design House Inc. is comprised of an all volunteer staff including Corporate Officers Skip Singleton and Taylor Wells and Corporate Board Members Kathy Barker, Susan Hayes Long, Sherry Moeller, Sharon Putterman, Randie Reilly, and Debbie Singleton, who work in concert with the Executive Committee consisting of Iantha Carley, Terry Castellani, Christina Emmerman, Heidi Fahey, Quintece Hill-Mattauszek, Alison Munoz, Stephanie Robinson, Victoria Sanchez, Jean Seline and Susan Wisor. 2017 Design Advisors are Barry Dixon, Frank Babb Randolph and Michael Roberson.
