Rewind: Georgetown Book Party

The area’s top designers were out in Georgetown in full force last night to celebrate the launch of coffee-table tome Spectacular Homes of Greater Washington, D.C. at Gore Dean Interiors. Guests milled around Deborah Gore Dean’s eclectic antique store while munching smoked salmon on toast triangles and drinking Terra Valentine wine, flown in from Napa Valley for the occasion.

The book is chock full of striking photographs, interesting Q&A’s, and bios of more than 40 area designers including big names such as Thomas Pheasant, Mary Douglas Drysdale, Jose Solis Betancourt, Michael Roberson, and Barry Dixon. It showcases homes in DC, Maryland and Virginia, and is available on amazon.com.
