Coco Blanca Pop-Up Preview: DC Design House Opens this Weekend


We shared the save-the-date recently, and now is the time: the DC Design House opens this weekend, and Coco Blanca is thrilled to once again be a part of it. As one of four boutiques invited to participate in the annual charity designer showhouse, we are delighted that the Coco Blanca pop-up shop will give visitors a flavor of our store – but even more important to us is that a portion of all purchases will be donated to Children’s National Health System.  Over the last three years, we are proud to have contributed more than $20,000 to this wonderful charity.

This is the first time the DC Design House will be open during the fall, which gave us the chance to stock the pop-up shop with special items that will make wonderful holiday gifts, from cozy hats and sweaters to baby gifts, home décor to apparel and jewelry. So whether shopping for yourself or for others, we will have something for everyone.


The 9th Annual DC Design House is located at 2509 Foxhall Road, NW, Washington, D.C., 20007 and will be open October 1 to 30, 2016.  General admission tickets can be purchased here for $35. Coco will be at the house Tuesday through Sunday daily.

If you have never visited a designer showhouse, the DC Design House really is worth the trip. As we set up the shop, we were able to preview some of the spaces, and the transformations are creative and impressive. And of course if you are inspired to enhance your home, we’ll have just the thing at our pop-up!
