I am SO, SO excited to be part of this year’s Dwell with Dignity, Thrift Studio Event. I have been a supporter of Dwell With Dignity since their inception. As a matter of fact, they are celebrating their 5th Anniversary this year.
Five marvelous years of supporting women and children who have escaped homelessness. Many have a past where they once lived in cars or on the streets. Just a job loss away from losing everything they had, their ultimate goal is for something to call their own and security in their future. These families have worked through other programs in Dallas to get on their feet. After job training and proving that they are ready for an apartment, or even a home, Dwell steps in. The volunteers at Dwell with Dignity design and furnish beautiful homes with all donated items. From furnishings and art, to photography, bedding, chandeliers, towels…..EVERYTHING. The volunteers do an AMAZING job.
I was so honored to be asked to design a vignette for this Fall’s event, which starts THIS THURSDAY. We have worked to select almost all of our items from the Dwell with Dignity warehouse of donated items. There are so many showrooms, designers and retailers who give to Dwell with Dignity and make this event possible. We partnered with ID Collection on the space and when Joe Demourelle of ID Collection pulled these gorgeous Bergamo fuschia drapery panels out of a back room, we were off and running.
And I am joined by many other talented designers, including Gonzalo Bueno and Mauricio Lobeiera of Ten + 3, Dan Nelson, Eleven 11 , Cathernine Dolan and Assoc., Joseph Minton, Peter Sandel and Paul Deusing, Click HERE for all the details on each designer and their partners too.
In addition to donations we used from the warehouse, I had other supporters who donated too. A huge THANK YOU to the following supporters who donated items or their services for our vignette::
- Kelly O’Neal
- SRT Designs – Workroom Labor and Pillows
- Currey & Co. – Lighting and Rugs
- R. Jones – Upholstery
- Fashion Glass and Mirror – Mirrors and Glass
- Artifex – Framing and Art
- Truett – Floor Coverings – Rugs
- Precision Delivery Services
Its also no big secret that PINK is the color of cancer awareness in the month of October. Cancer awareness is a cause that is also near and dear to my heart. So now that you have had a Sneak Peek of my space, come purchase it all at greatly reduced prices on Thursday night. The Thrift Studio event starts this week but don’t hesitate if it’s all sold. Drop by for the next month and see what else has been brought into the vignette spaces. They will be stocked and re-stocked every day, so shop often. And there are some great deals for designers for their client projects too.
Thanks to Dwell with Dignity for allowing me to be a part of such a great event. Please buy your tickets HERE if you haven’t yet and join me!! And don’t miss a chance to meet Tobi Fairley, Honorary Chair of this Thrift Studio Event.
