Washington DC - Halls of Fame 2010 Dream Home

The Washington Design Center opened it's doors to a new location of "Dream Home" earlier this Summer. Designers selected, all honored Hall of Fame designers, to showcase their talents were Olvia Demetriou, David Herchik, Kelley Proxmire, Frank Babb Randolph, Michael Roberson, Nestor Santa-Cruz, Victor Shargai and Rita St. Clair.

We at Century were honored to have both Kelley Proximire and Michael Roberson use our product in their installations. I always marvel at how designers can take a piece and make it look completely different by relation to the space and coordinating pieces, fabrics and colors. I was able to visit the showhouse and was blown away by how marvelous the rooms were!!





Kelley Proxmire used two of our Omni Mirror #558-235 (photo above) in the grand entry. I just loved the bold black and turquoise color scheme; chic, classic "old-Hollywood".









Michael's room was so fresh - loved how she really played off the natural light and created a "garden room" ! She used our Oscar de la Renta Rope Arm Chair #60-3267. She used our Chalk White finish on the frame and simple white duck cotton for the cover (its even Sunbrella so no worries about spills).

The chair now feels almost sculptural, like a piece of marble. This piece could be my most favorite of the entire house!!







I also loved how Michael displayed her business cards, just feels like Summer with all those sunflower seed packages.





The showhouse is open until December 4th 2010 and located on the 5th floor of the Washington Design Center. For more information on the design center and the dream home, visit http://www.dcdesigncenter.com/.

Congratulations to all involved in this inspirational showhouse!!
