A Home with a Heart

When a client wants to hire you to completely design and decorate her brand new home, you jump at the chance. When it's also going to benefit a great cause, you fall right out of your chair!

I was blessed with the opportunity to provide design services for a very deserving family as they built a brand new house from the ground up. This place has got it all, and I had so much fun outfitting it to be the perfect little nest for them to call home.

The coolest part? This was the 2016 home of distinction. After we got the place completely built, the family put it on tour for two weeks in September. Members of the public could make a donation to tour this home and all of the proceeds benefited Braden's Hope For Childhood Cancer, a foundation that raises awareness and funds research grants to find treatments and cures for childhood cancer. More than 1,500 people toured the home and raised more than $30,000.Not to mention the family turned out to be one of the kindest, warmest families I know, and are now dear friends. It was both an honor and a pleasure to be involved with such an awesome project!
