Design Worthy: Room Service Atlanta
As a designer a dream project would be something that you can completely take over with unlimited creativity, no one telling you no & an unlimited budget. Well, two out of three ain’t bad! I am thrilled, humbled & honored to have been selected to participate with the amazing Non Profit Organization Room Service Atlanta.
Headed up by the crazy talented (& even nicer if you can believe that) Erica Ward & Dayka Robinson. Room Service Atlanta teams up local Atlanta Designers and the United Methodist Children’s Home. The UMCH offers programs suited towards children, teens & families in North Georgia. They focus on Foster Care, Adoption & Independent Living to name a few. Each designer takes on an Independent Living dorm & the reigns are taken off. We can each do whatever we want to better our space. And these aren’t just coats of paint people… these room transformations are absolutely incredible! It ends up looking like a show house in the end. If you have a minute, watch this video to see last years home. It is unreal.
So when they asked me to participate I literally jumped at the opportunity & then quickly realized the magnitude of the task at hand once I stepped into the space…
There will be a lot of work. A lot of paint. And A LOT of creativity needed here!!
While I can do anything my little designer heart desires, I have zero budget to accomplish this. So I will be relying on my mad DIY skills to transform some pieces I have
hoarded collected over the years & some generous donations to complete this project.
So far, I have pulled together my scrap fabrics & am leaning towards this color scheme. It’s fun, young & a little glam.
I’ll keep you updated on all the projects (there will be a lot!) & all the updates!

Thanks for all of your help with this! These young adults will greatly appreciate it!!!
btw… Big Thanks to Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality for featuring our house today! ( She is participating in the Room Service Atlanta project too! ) Also, she shared some news for all of you Haven attendees… I am going to be a speaker this year!! Can’t wait to see everyone there.
Wow, Kristin. There was so much fabulousness in that one video! How inspiring. I love the fabric scheme you're leaning towards right now. Especially the black and white dots! Loving that! Thanks so much for sharing. I can't wait to see what you pull off. 🙂

Just a coat of paint will bring about an amazing transformation.
That is just wonderful! I can't wait to see how you transform the space. I just love your style! Best wishes…
Girl you should set up a donation button through paypal…I would love to help!! You can create a button on paypal and place the widget on your sidebar:)
What a great cause and I am so glad you are part of it! xo Kristin
HI, Kristin, so excited that you are participating on this one. It will be fun to see it all come together again. You are right across the hall from our room and we almost picked yours. I love your fabrics and color scheme, that is going to be so girly glam.
LOVE the fabric combo! Can't wait to see what you do with it!
What a wonderful project and a great color/pattern scheme! I can't wait to see how it turns out!
I can't even wait to see what you do! I'm sure it will be amazing!
You will be awesome at this! Love all the fabric choices and can't wait to see the finished room. The lucky resident will have a real glam area to enjoy!
So sorry I am missing it this time around….can't wait to see what everyone does:)
I so look forward to meeting you on this project! I almost picked that room because of all the great natural light ;-))) But ended up with a lounge room in the boys cottage. Loving what you have pulled together so far.
See you soon!
I saw your house over at Rhoda's and couldn't wait to come and check out more. You have some fabulous inspiration and I have a gorgeous home. I consider you a "true" designer as you are not just using your skills to create a room by purchasing items, your using your creative mind to upcycle items and not many interior designers do that, most opt to purchase from design stores. I love your brass lamp idea…ingenious!
I will have a further tour around your site, there are lots of things I want to see so will add myself to keep up with your news.
My dream has been to have a non-profit decorating business to help other non profit organizations that need an uplift in their offices and living facilities. You are so blessed with this opportunity!!!!!!! I am envious!
We're excited to have you on board this year, Kristen. You time and talent will help a young girl get over a rough patch in her life. Talk about making a mark. You will be surprised at the emotion you feel once you are complete. Truly
