Room Makeover – Make a Wish

Giving Back

A few years ago, a good friend of mine was a volunteer at Make A Wish. She was given the task of doing a room makeover for a lovely teen girl here in LA. Unfortunately, she didn’t know where to start. My phone rang late one night asking for my help. Without any hesitation, I jumped at the chance to help my friend create a new bedroom for the more than deserving teen.

When we arrived, we were met at the door by a very sweet young lady. She took us to her room to show how she was living. It was just a mess of things thrown together to create a livable space for her. So we sat down to talk about ‘her’.

Thumbing through a few magazines, talking about her favorite movies and her career goals birthed a classic, rich style. She loved old Hollywood and the classic style that would transcend time. Paint, carpet, art and accessories along with new furniture pieces created a room that would stand the test of time.
