Design to Fall For

By Julia Beizer

Fall may be all about apple picking and leaf gazing out in the country, but this Sunday, design divas and house gawkers have an urban way to take advantage of the cool, autumn air: the annual Dupont Circle House Tour.

Twelve Dupont residences open their doors to the public during this event. The locations are kept under wraps until the day of the tour for security reasons, but visitors can expect to peek at homes that run the gamut from Victorian to contemporary. "This year we went with some modern buildings as well just because there's so much interest in condo living," said Rob Halligan, president of the Dupont Circle Citizens Association, which organizes the event. Visitors also get the chance to check out artwork by five Dupont Circle artists in an exhibition at the Washington Studio School.

Tickets can be purchased in advance on the association's Web site or at these retailers for $25. On the day of the event, $30 tickets can be purchased at the Dupont Circle Freshfarm Market or at Hotel Palomar, the site of the Victorian Tea that is included in the ticket price.
