Hello Defined Design readers!
This weekend I got an invite from a fellow design savvy friend to attend the Good Shepherd Center Charity Design Project open house. This was such an inspiring day! This project was lead by various designers who all contributed their design services to a great cause. The Good Shepherd Center for homeless women and children consists of 30 + rooms with a living room and large commercial kitchen. They assist 700 to 1,000 women and children every year. The center serves meals totaling 70,000 annually, and provides housing and assistance for those that have no place to go.
The great designers had the opportunity to design one of the 30 rooms with their flair and style while giving less fortunate women a beautiful space to live. Most of the furnishings, finishes, and accessories were donated by vendors like Duralee fabrics, West Elm, and interface FLOR, just to name a few.
I was truly touched and overwhelmed with the wonderful transformations. This program reminds me why I love my profession. I am so inspired and look forward to contributing to a great cause like this one.
A sweet and motivational note! Love it!
