There’s something so beautiful about a home that is well-built and designed with passion. Maybe it’s the paint colors that draw you in or the way the furniture is arranged. If you get joy out of architecture, interior design and home goods, then mark your calendars for the DC-Metro Modern Home Tour.

Held by The Modern Architecture + Design Society on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven home projects will be showcased throughout neighborhoods in the DMV, including Tenleytown, North Kensington, Garrett Park, Takoma Park, Arlington, Vienna and Fairfax.
The self-guided event boasts not only sightseeing and open house visits for the public, but also opportunities for attendees to understand the reasons behind the designs, and ask questions to the architects, designers and home builders.
Expect to see a modern upgrade at a 1950s midcentury home in North Kensington; a renovation of a 1957 Garrett Park home that now has age-in-place features; an addition to an Arlington 1950s brick rambler; a sleek kitchen with European features in Vienna; a brand-new home in Fairfax; and much more.
