This is the Sixth of an Eight-Part Feature on the designers’ vision and progress at the DC Design House, which is underway and set to open on April 14th.

The top floor of the Fifth Annual DC Design House includes three spaces. Susan Nelson of Susan Nelson Interiors of Great Falls, VA, www.susannelsoninteriors.com, is designing Space 17, the Daughter’s Bedroom. By combining block and geometric prints in green, yellow, pink, brown and cream, Nelson creates a cozy haven. “By using a mix of new and repurposed furniture, the room has a quality of changing along with the girl,” Nelson says. For instance, the coverlet features a sophisticated fabric with a watercolor quality, while the club chair is slipcovered in a fun confetti print in pinks and purples that the “daughter” might have loved as a child.
