Home of the Week: Residence Two Plan by Centex Homes

The Parks at Laurel Oaks, Hillsboro, Ore.

The 10th Annual DC Design House brought together 23 interior and landscape designers to makeover a 27,000-square-foot mansion in Potomac, Md. The fundraiser, which benefits Children’s National Health System, offers a treasure trove of design inspiration from floor-to-ceiling in large rooms and tiny jewel box spaces. Bold colors, carefully honed vignettes of collections, decorated ceilings and books-as-art are just some of the trends found in this year’s Design House that you can use in your new home.
