Throughout the month of October 2017, the Washington design community celebrated the tenth anniversary of the DC Design House, located this year in Potomac, Maryland. Benefiting Children’s National Health System, the showhouse featured gorgeous 23 spaces, designed by DC's most talented and sought-after designers.

 Josh Hildreth

Josh Hildreth

Josh Hildreth was born in New York and raised in the Midwest. He pairs a studied, passionate interest in design history with a warm and engaging interpersonal style. His layered, personal spaces convey a sense of attentive collecting over spans of time. His design approach values the quiet sophistication of detail, subtlety and suitability, bringing together a gracious mix of old and new, classic and contemporary, in a way that feels fresh and relevant without veering into trendy. 

As the founder of a successful 12-year-old Washington, DC-based commercial interiors firm, DMG Interiors, Josh delivers designs with excellent project management skills and a deep knowledge of construction and interior architecture. His work has been featured on the cover of Home & Design and in the Washington Post and Washington Life, among others. Josh has appeared on Fox 5 and ABC News to discuss his library in the 2016 DC Design House. 

 Marika Meyer

Marika Meyer

A native Washingtonian, Marika Meyer established her interior design firm, Marika Meyer Interiors, in 2007 in Washington, DC. A culmination of her formal interior design education and practical experience in the fine arts, Marika Meyer Interiors is a full-service interiors firm specializing in residential design and with projects spanning the United States. With each client’s lifestyle and taste in mind, the firm references the architectural integrity of each project to encourage harmony between structure and decoration, artfully mixing classic and transitional elements. The result: practical luxury, functional beauty in well-proportioned environments that are elegant and sophisticated yet welcoming, livable, and absolutely personal…the very definition of feeling right at home.

In 2016 she launched Marika Meyer Textiles, where working in a two-dimensional pursuit of color and composition is the perfect solution for projects that call for one-of-a-kind patterns and designs. Marika’s work has been featured in Traditional Home, Interiors, House Beautiful, Washingtonian,  Luxe  Magazine, Home and Design  Magazine and The Washington Post  among others.
