Jura Koncius

Jura Koncius came to the Washington Post in 1976 to be assistant to the Fashion Editor. She started writing about design and decorating in 1982. Her coverage has taken her inside the homes of hundreds of Washingtonians from sleek studios in Penn Quarter to country castles in Warrenton. She’s visited the homes of Martha Stewart, browsed the Milan Furniture Fair and reported on White House interiors from Clinton to Obama. She co-founded the Washington Post Super Sale held from 1991 to 1996, which raised $5 million for the Nina Hyde Center at Georgetown’s Lombardi Cancer Center. She currently has an obsession with organizing and decluttering and is often found getting rid of stuff, or chatting or tweeting about this. Koncius is married and has one son. The family lives in a 1937 brick colonial in Chevy Chase, D.C. with their cat Gus who destroys furniture. Join Jura every Thursday from 11to 12 ET for her weekly Q&A Home Front web chat.
