Allow Me To Introduce You

To my home away from home, the Washington Design Center.
7 floors of design bliss is what fills the Washington design center {WDC}, in my opinion. Feast your eyes on endless immpecable furniture pieces, drool worthy fabric, and undeniable accessories. And you can indulge if your pockets are deep, really deep. Of course like all design centers we are opened to the trade only. Meaning you must be a registered designer with tax id # to purchase goods. Now, a client or the general public can make an appointment, come walk around and look but they cannot buy anything without a designer. Design centers all over the nation are filled with our industries most exquisite goods. Above are just a few of the showrooms housed in the WDC.

Street view of the building. Pretty tree-lined sidewalks grace the front and a long awning at the entrance allows the designers never to spend the 2.5 seconds from the street to the front doors getting wet in the rain or hot in the sun....quite spoiled I'd say.

Here is a peek at the main lobby of the building. The design is the work of prominate DC interior designer Kelly Proxmiere. Notice what a fabulous color combination she chose? Georgia on my mind.... GO DAWGS! :) This space exhibits classic colors with a fresh and edgy sass used in accent pieces. I am excited to see what the winter design will be. {I'll be sure and upload some photos of the change when it takes place}

Last but not least here are some of the absolutely wonderful people on the third floor

Precious Pam

a hard days work!

My sweet Emily, she brightens my day and is always ready to chat when I need a break :)

My Alabama girl, Amanda. I get the privilege of working with this crazy awesome girl who never fails to keep me laughing all day long...

The one and only Greg- this man is one of the friendliest faces on the 3rd floor. He is always informing us of the latest & greatest happenings/places to go around town.

Duralee's cute-as-a-button intern, E. This sweetie is a hard worker and is on her way to a fantastic design career!

Needless to say my working environment is entirely too much fun and more fabulous than I ever expected my first job to be. I am so grateful for a job {in this economy} and I'm thrilled that the design center is my home away from home. Thank you to all the people that make my day incredible everyday and allow me to thoroughly enjoy working at the Washington Design Center.
Until next time...
