About Jura
The home and design coverage of Jura Koncius has taken her inside hundreds of homes, from tiny studios in Penn Quarter to country castles in Warrenton. She's visited the homes of Martha Stewart, browsed the Milan Furniture Fair and toured the houses of D.C. mayoral candidates. She's reported on White House interiors from Clinton to Obama, and toured the Oval Office and Lincoln Bedroom. She is currently obsessed with organizing and decluttering her 1937 D.C. brick colonial.
Home Front chat
Join Jura and her weekly guests for her weekly webchat Home Front on Thursdays from 11-12 where you can ask questions such as what color to paint your bedroom or where to get your chipped crystal wine glasses repaired.
