As a designer a dream project would be something that you can completely take over with unlimited creativity, no one telling you no & an unlimited budget. Well, two out of three ain't bad! I am thrilled, humbled & honored to have been selected to participate with the amazing Non Profit Organization Room Service Atlanta.
Headed up by the crazy talented (& even nicer if you can believe that) Erica Ward & Dayka Robinson. Room Service Atlanta teams up local Atlanta Designers and the United Methodist Children's Home. The UMCH offers programs suited towards children, teens & families in North Georgia. They focus on Foster Care, Adoption & Independent Living to name a few. Each designer takes on an Independent Living dorm & the reigns are taken off. We can each do whatever we want to better our space. And these aren't just coats of paint people... these room transformations are absolutely incredible! It ends up looking like a show house in the end. If you have a minute, watch this video to see last years home. It is unreal.
So when they asked me to participate I literally jumped at the opportunity & then quickly realized the magnitude of the task at hand once I stepped into the space...
There will be a lot of work. A lot of paint. And A LOT of creativity needed here!!
So far, I have pulled together my scrap fabrics & am leaning towards this color scheme. It's fun, young & a little glam.
I'll keep you updated on all the projects (there will be a lot!) & all the updates!
