Room Service Atlanta...

Happy Friday, loves!
I wanted to tell you about a project I've been working on for the last couple of months. Room Service Atlanta is a non-profit organization that brings together talented interior designers and design companies to design a home to help homeless families get back on their feet. This fall they are partnering with United Methodist Children's Home to complete a boys shelter. Each designer gets one space to refinish at their discretion while donating all their goods, design time, labor, etc. There are definitely certain guidelines that we needed to follow in order to make sure this space stays safe, functional, durable, yet stylish for these young men.
The home will be lived in by young men ages 18-21 that are transitioning into living on their own. While here they will still be able to receive counseling and learn essential life skills while staying in the UMCH program.

This is a picture of the front of the building we're renovating. The grounds are so very pretty here. Hopefully I'll get some better pictures today. 
Lucky us, myself & Cody (another I.O. Metro store manager) are completing the dining room in our unique I.O. style. You can read more about the project and about us here. The installation is actually today so stay tuned for lots of before & afters coming soon!
Happy Designing,

Time goes on...

It's crazy how fast the days have been going by. With a recent promotion, I've been working like a maniac for the last couple of months (more than my usual maniac self). It's true that when you love what you do it never truly feels like work. Lately, every conversation I've had starts with "We have to catch up, I've just been so busy..." and it is a good thing. I'm adjusting well to my new normal just in time for my favorite time of the year, FALL! Georgia is amazing in the fall. We're right in the middle of Oktoberfest, The Georgia Apple Festival, Gold Rush Festival, tons of pumpkin patches, apple orchards, fall farmers markets, and beautiful 70 degree weather every day accompanies with the most magnificent leaf changing. I'm in Autumn Heaven! I figured we'll start this gorgeous Thursday off with some fall time & decor inspiration.

Happy Autumn,
