Each time I sit to down to write a post I am overwhelmed by all of the things that have happened since I last updated my blog. It’s apparent that I need to devote as much love to the blog as I do to my projects because it’s an awesome creative outlet that helps me connect with you in a way that my Facebook and Instagram posts cannot.

Having been chosen as a designer for the Where Hope Has a Home Project at the Ronald McDonald House Stanford, has been such a humbling and challenging experience. I am continually in awe of the design talent that has come together to make this very special building a beautiful, safe and comforting place for children and their families.

It’s been a whirlwind couple of months working on fine-tuning my room design, meeting the required deadlines and securing sponsors that are helping to make my vision a reality. I am extremely grateful to the following companies who have enthusiastically offered their support through generous contributions to my portion of the project:

  • Build.com (supplying all the beautiful lighting in the room)
  • Coyuchi (supplying all of the luxurious organic bedding, pillows, and towels for the room)
  • Crossville (supplying the stunning shower tile)
  • Houzz (donated a gift card so that I could purchase furnishings and accessories for the room)
  • Land of Nod (donating wonderful storage and furniture for the littlest members of the family)
  • Loloi Rugs (supplying my fantastic rug for the room)
  • Kohler (supplying the chic fixtures, sink and hardware for the bathroom)
  • Shane Evans Fine Woodworking (supplying an inlaid mirror and custom-built vanity for the bathroom)
  • Timorous Beasties (supplying a fantastical and whimsical wall covering for one of the walls in the room)

Knowing what sort of feeling I want my room to have and how important it is that everything in the space provides a sense of comfort, beauty, and warmth, I approached companies that I personally admire and that align with that line of thinking. Each believes that attention to detail and quality craftsmanship contribute to a more lovely interior environment and each have company values and practices that enrich the lives of so many.

There is a lot left to do and on top of completing client projects it’s shaping up to be a busy summer but I look forward to keeping you updated on the status of this project as well as what I’ve been up to in the wild world of interior design!

All my best,

Melisa
