For the second year in a row, guests, with an interest in interior design, came together to hear about the work and secrets of this year’s Design House and to learn how the essential funds raised support an important not for profit organization – Charlottesville’s Shelter for Help in Emergency (SHE).
Designer Sheilah Michaels shared the journey of acquiring her room for this year’s project (the children’s room) and explained how she came up with her color and design plan. Cartie Lominack, Executive Director of the Shelter for women and their children explained what they do and how their work helps these women in need to launch a new and safer life for themselves. Their motto Peace Begins at Home is one we can all appreciate and value.
More information can be found including tickets via their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/CharlottesvilleDesignHouse. This year’s Design House runs from May 13 to May18.
If you have never been to a Design House tour, I encourage you to attend. It is inspiring and exciting to view the finished house and meet some of the designers.
Grab some friends or make it a mother-daughter tradition for Mother’s Day. Either way, it is time well spent, it’s fun and it brings vital support to a worthwhile cause. What could be better than that? See you at Design House 2014!
