My friend and fellow interior designer, Kelly LaPlante, invited me to join a team of Interior Designers for a great cause. The project is to create a beautiful environment for a new group home for kids, ages 6-17, in Round Rock. All the designers met at the home, Central Texas Table of Grace (CTTG) to kick off the project on September 9th.
What does a house warming mean for this space? The goal is to elevate the space to feel like a home - new paint, light fixtures, furnishings, and accessories.
This former office building will be one of the fastest projects I have ever been involved in as the install date is less than one month away! Each design team is charged with designing one space in the home - we are working on the media room (pictured below). This is where the kids come to hang out, watch movies, decompress, do homework, and relax after a long day at school!
Our install date of October 7th is approaching quickly and there is so much to accomplish. I am working to secure donations and volunteers for the mad dash to the finish line. I have already started assembling a great team of volunteers.
There is no more deserving group of kids that need this 'house' to become a home. Stacy Johnson is the founder and a true inspiration. Please visit the website to learn more about this group home, and about Stacy.
This is the current state of the media room.
