Giving Back

Humbled, honored, brought to tears : CTTG Recap

All I can say is that there are times that all the hard work is worth it.  We were honored to be invited to join a team of 9 fabulous designers to create a 'housewarming' for a group foster home, Central Texas Table of Grace.  Given only one month from walk through to installation, this was a quick project to put it mildly.  However, in that month, I was time and again pleasantly surprised and humbled by the generosity of those I know - and those I had never seen before.

Interior Designers #GivingBack : House Warming Central Texas Table of Grace

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.

The Inspiration

Last Spring, I travelled with my family to France and dined (and danced) under the stars in Paris.  Each evening, sitting at a cafe table in Paris, I saw more than the company I was with and the food I was served.  I could see PARIS.  The feeling of that moment - the time in the evening when friends, family, and lovers fill the outdoor cafe tables to dine together - this was the inspiration for my picnic table presented at DIFFA's Urban Picnic by Design.
