I want to give a special personal shout out to Suzanne Coppola, the owner of the beautiful furniture and antiques gallery here in Houston, near #westu, called @laurierblanc. Suzanne ( part of the @westuniversitymoms group herself - like Arica, she has two young sons ) underwrote all of the new kitchen supplies for our @dwellwithdignity Mom, Arica. As if that were not already enough, she has now spoken to Arica and offered to purchase all of the school supplies for Arica’s two sons so they can begin the new school year on par with their classmates. I know that @dodson_interiors, @decofoodie and @kimturn of @dwellwithdignity join me in thanking Suzanne for her generous heart. #dwellwithdignity #designhouston #houstondesign

I have to give a shoutout to my friends at @thejosephcompany_ and @dodson_interiors for the amazing transformation they did to make this house a home! @dwellwithdignity is a nonprofit organization new to Houston that hopes to help families live in better conditions. This single mom and her two boys are the first family the Houston chapter has been able to help! Read more and see more pics @houstonchron! Link in profile! ❤️❤️❤️🏡🏡

I'd like to introduce you to an incredible charity @dwellwithdignity founded by members of the design community. Yesterday was the unveiling of this labor of love for Arica "who has struggled with poverty, homelessness and, sometimes hopelessness." - @dianemcowen @houstonchron Julie Dodson @dodson_interiors and her team designed an entire home that isn't only beautiful, but one that will inspire hope and encouragement in the lives of Arica and her two sons. To learn more please read today's feature in the Houston Chronicle: "New nonprofit brings dignity to home life"
Many played an instrumental role here are a few: @codarus @kimturn @decofoodie @tkpleslie @houstonchron @laurenpostler . .

I will share more images from Dwell with Dignity’s first Houston home that we’ve all been working on so hard over the past two days ( the #BIGREVEAL is tomorrow - Monday ), but right now I want to share this pic I took today of this beautiful #diapercake. Our #dwdhouston Mom doesn’t have babies anymore - just two young sons, 6 and 13, who will be well and truly blown away when they see their home’s transformation tomorrow. However, if *our Mom* did have a baby, this would be in my car for her right now. Please be watching for @dianemcowen’s article in the @houstonchron about this first project here, on Tuesday. We are all very honored to have worked on this: it is an incredible feeling of deep joy to know how much her life is going to shift - and especially that of her two young sons - when they absorb that anonymous people donated so much in order to give them a fresh start and a chance to experience how a beautifully designed, spotlessly clean and meticulously organized home really will transform their lives. #oneheart #youmatter #communityservice #loverules #interiors4all #dwellwithdignity #designhounds

The day is dawning and the #coffee is on! haven’t been able to sleep well because I am so excited about working with @dodson_interiors, Sharon Sudbury Staley, Nancy Cameron and @dwellwithdignity co-founder, Kim Swango Turner on transforming our Mom’s home - starting today! Yesterday, our volunteer painting crew was there and our volunteer deep cleaning crew from Sam’s Cleaning and Hauling. Wait till you see this > you won’t believe the generosity of what #designhouston’s vendor community has donated for this - including a brand new washer and dryer! Our Mom works two jobs- is raising two boys by herself - and has - so far - had to spend almost all her free time each week at a grungy laundromat doing laundry. She has no idea she is getting a new washer/dryer - thanks to @fergusonshowrooms here in Houston. Can you imagine what it will mean to her and her two boys to give her that time back in her life? #dwellwithdignity #transforminglives through #design

My little #designhappyliving pop up stationery shop got a *makeover* yesterday, thanks to my friends at @upperbayframe_andgallery - where it lives. I’m also adding a ribbon gallery for the upcoming fall season where local shoppers will be able to buy exquisite ribbons by the yard. There’s nothing more I love than beautiful ribbons and papers and desktop items! This year, 10% of all I make from this little shop within a shop will go to the charity, @dwellwithdignity. I’m involved on the local planning committee for the #dwellwithdignity - Houston chapter and this weekend we are installing the first home we’ve done here in Houston. It’s for a formerly homeless single Mom and her two young sons and they are getting a *soup to nuts* makeover - down to the groceries. Every single thing in her home is being replaced as @dwellwithdignity ‘s mission is to inspire and transform lives- through design. Interior designers @dodson_interiors + Sharon Sudbury Staley are the design team working on it with myself + Nancy Cameron assisting. There has been an enormous outpouring of volunteer support and donations to help make this a reality here and all of us involved are incredibly grateful. Our Mom LOVES to write and journal - she has boxes and boxes of journals & books & notes and I am going to surprise her with a beautiful gift box of new paper, pens & pencils that will help her elevate the feeling she gets when expressing herself on paper. For all of us that love paper, we know how sensual and good it feels to touch artisanal paper and write with beautiful ink and pens and now our Mom will know the same feeling. The *BIG REVEAL* is on Monday and will be featured in the @houstonchron. Please stay tuned and to find out more about Dwell with Dignity and the wonderful work they do, see www.dwelleithdignity.org. #designhounds #myhouston #givebacktothecommunity #hearthappy #design

Spent the whole morning sanding and priming the heck of a dresser for a @dwelllwithdignity's family installation!
I'm so grateful that we are able to give back to the community in such diverse ways, combining the passion for supporting local nonprofits and DIY work. It's also such a pleasure to hang out with the dedicated staff and other volunteers! ♥️

We ❤️ supporting such a life-changing organization! #Repost @dwellwithdignity with @get_repost

Anothe @dwellwithdignity project designed by @kimturn and me- I think we found those agates at the rock store- remember?!#dwdlove #dwellwithdignity #inspireddesign

Oh my goodness!!!! I owe a huge thank you to my clients @mattschaub8 and @lfschaub for getting us this @jjwatt signed @houstontexans football for our @dwellwithdignity project! Having the opportunity to design this project for Arica and her two young boys has been the most rewarding design project I have had he opportunity to be a part of. Dwell with Dignity’s mission is to help families escape poverty and homelessness thru design; one household at a time! Let’s do this Houston 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Lavender and grey was this #dwellwithdignity Mom's two favorite colors. I wanted to give something soft and feminine to welcome her and her family into their new home.

Dwell with Dignity - Houston update! Some of you know I + Julie of @dodson_interiors ( who recently completed this beautiful Showhouse room ) + Sharon Sudbury Staley + Nancy Cameron are on the planning committee for Dwell with Dignity - Houston. I want to give Julie a huge shout, personally, for getting so much of the furniture we need for this first home we are installing in 2.5 weeks - donated, so that we have more of our budget left over for the next home. And I especially want to thank @thejosephcompany_ - who is donating our sofa, our queen bed and a chair! #Houston is such a giving community of people. Thank you, #thejosephcompany! #myhouston #givingback #designhouston #houstondesign #dwdhouston #dwellwithdignity #designhounds #grateful cc: @holly_papercity.

A place to study and do projects was 10 yr old Miya’s only request. It turned out the best place was in the kitchen nook close to her mom. Yesterday’s install for this @dwellwithdignityatlanta family was such a joy! More to come on this design challenge and all our great volunteers!!! DIY #benmoore #whitedovepaint

One of my favorite people. One of my favorite lifestyle headshots.

Dwell with Dignity. While in Dallas for #DallasMarket, I had the great good fortune to be able to go with @dwellwithdignity’s co-founder, Kim Swango Turner, on a tour of the Dwell with Dignity warehouse facility in Dallas. Dwell with Dignity was founded 9 years ago by Lisa Robison and shortly thereafter she was joined by Kim. The charity these two women have created is amazing and now, with a team of 7 full-time employees in Dallas, they are able to run the charity professionally and design and deliver 2 entire homes a month,beautifully designed, for a deserving Mom and her children who were formerly homeless. || There are 4 of us here in Houston on the volunteer planning committee for the first Dwell with Dignity - Houston chapter, ( myself, @dodson_interiors, Sharon Sudbury Staley and Nancy Cameron and we will be installing our first home July 14th and 15th. We hope the #Houston community will step up and help us permanently fund & create something equally as helpful and inspiring for these women and their children. We would like to already thank you, @kenkehoedesign of @kenkehoeshowrooms and @pindlercorp for jumping right in and you, too, @houstondesigncenter! #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #designhouston #houstondesign #dwellwithdignity #dwdhouston #houstoninteriordesigners #myhouston

This wreath was made for a mother with 4 little ones. It was made by me with love to be the first thing they see to welcome them to their new home and new start. Thank you #dwellwithdignity for all that you do for these families. You are an amazing organization!

Did I mention that #dwellwithdignity is my very favorite non profit? This Mom's favorite color is #bling . A girl after my own heart! I hope this Mom's heart was warmed when she came home and saw this on her front door of her new home.
