Room Service Atlanta and some exceptional volunteers have been working hard over the last couple of days at Nicholas House installing new interiors for deserving residents. Beautiful rooms are emerging from our Participating Designers and their talents are really shining through!

My plan was to pull together a moodboard to share my design direction, but shucks here’s an actual photo. I dressed a bed in my guest room with the items I’m using for the space. Here’s a preview of the father’s bed:


He has two daughters who share bunk beds, but you will have to wait to see that in another post :-). I’m also creating a sitting room and have a bathroom to finish, too. *Whew* As Sherry would say, “I’ve been working so hard my sweat is sweating!”

I did manage to capture some video footage of a few design stars hard at work…and of course their sense of humor! Enjoy!
