D.C. filmmaker Jason Baustin differs from his area counterparts in one important regard: He's not from around here. Jason moved to the D.C. area from Atlanta, Georgia to study Film and Digital Media at American University after some friends had told him about the program. After graduating, he decided to stay in the D.C. area to make films rather than opting for the oft chosen destinations of New York and Los Angeles.

As opening day approaches, more and more history about the home is becoming available. Knowing there was a link to Woodward & Lothrop, the realtor Ellen Wilner revealed the home was first built for George N. Everett, second vice president and treasurer for the department store. His widow Alice Everett sold the home to the Atlantic Building Corporation owned by George Wasserman in 1947. The home has remained in the Wasserman family ever since.

The designers and volunteers have been working non-stop, weekdays and weekends, to finish their spaces for Press Day this Friday, April 1st, Preview Party night on April 8th and opening day April 9th. The number of designers and volunteers continues to expand and contract each day, but the final tally of designers and finished spaces now totals 20.

After Friday’s review of Liz Levin’s entry and upper hallway, Patrick Sutton’s two-story living room transformation and Erin Paige Pitts’ pool room with hand-painted floor, it’s now time to move to the first floor spaces that open to the glorious backyard.

Interior Visions

Interior Visions

For over two decades, Mona Hajj has been designing interiors that combine global vision with an emphasis on elegance, comfort, and simplicity. Named one of Architectural Digest's top 100 designers and architects, Hajj's interiors are colorful, textural, and abundantly livable. Her distinctly original and internationally influenced aesthetic is evidenced by her use of culturally and historically diverse adornments such as Persian rugs, Flemish tapestries, Japanese screens, Italian chandeliers, and Chinese chargers. On this evening, Hajj discusses select projects showcased in her book, Interior Visions (Random House, 2011), including a beach house in Delaware, a New York City apartment, the Embassy of Luxembourg here in Washington, D.C., and even her own home in Baltimore.
