A Preview of Spaces 7, 8, 9, & 10 at the 2012 DC Design House

A Preview of Spaces 7, 8, 9, & 10 at the 2012 DC Design House

This is the Third 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.

For Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey of SCW Interiors in Alexandria, VA, www.scwinteriors.com, being included as one of the designers in the 2012 DC Design House is “the most prestigious invitation for a designer.” But it also means sprinting to the finish line. “Being selected to design for the showhouse is a bit like being crowned homecoming queen then having to run a marathon in your ball gown while collecting items for a scavenger hunt,” Cavin-Winfrey says. It’s also one of the highlights of one’s career, she notes.

Showhouse veteran Kelley Proxmire of Kelley Interior Design in Bethesda, MD, www.kelleyinteriordesign.com, who has participated in 21 showhouses over the past 11 years, says it’s still exciting to be selected. “I really feel honored to be a part of this fundraising event,” Proxmire says. “Children’s National Medical Center is a very deserving organization and should hopefully receive much needed funds from the DC Design House.”

Local Ice Cream Participating in Walmart's "Get On The Shelf " Campaign

Local Ice Cream Participating in Walmart's "Get On The Shelf " Campaign

 

Gaithersburg resident, Valerie Ross, has entered her southern style, hand-churned ice cream into Walmart’s “Get On The Shelf Program," a contest that discovers great products and small businesses. This program allows anyone up until April 4th to submit a product to be voted on by the public. The competition is tough with over 4,000 brands in the running. The top 10 products from the first round will go to the final round of voting, which takes place between April 11th and April 24th.

After being laid off in 2009, Ross created "BOSS Ice Cream" to pay for her daughter’s college tuition. This ice cream is based on a family recipe passed down through generations since the 1800’s.

This super premium ice cream produced in Gaithersburg “keeps it real,” as Ross says, with no preservatives or additives. It’s also an egg and gluten free product.
