In the August Issue
Comments () | Published August 10, 2009
The Washingtonian’s August issue, which is on newsstands now, has lots of reading material for those who like to keep up on home-design and real-estate trends.

Features editor Denise Kersten Wills interviewed dozens of interior designers for her piece on design secrets. Take a peek inside the homes of local designers who mix pricey items with inexpensive pieces from places like Ikea and Target. You’ll also get the scoop on design consultations, designers’ favorite paint colors, where to shop for furniture bargains, and tips for how to get free design help.

 In “Move Right In,” we take a look at six condo buildings that are move-in ready. In boom times buyers were often forced to put down a deposit based on architectural renderings and small samples of countertops. No longer. Developers have postponed new buildings while they try to sell those already completed—giving buyers lots of bargaining power.
