ROOM SERVICE ATLANTA 2013




I have participated in Room Service twice now, but this time I had too much on my plate to make it happen:(

Honestly it is a ton of hard work......but so worth it.  I love that you really have to think outside the box to be creative.

I have a few images of completed rooms today that are just incredible!

One of the founders,  the talented Dayka Robinson  put this room together.  You have got to see the before.....

Kristin Jackson of the Hunted Interiors designed this room....she is incredibly creative!

Another talented designer, Jennifer Reynolds created this fun space.  Love these fun colors....


My good friends Lori May, Angela [The Painted House] and Rhoda teamed for this inspired and artistic space in the girls cottage.

Most of the rooms had small kitchens AND baths to makeover also!

And my girl Rhonda Peterson put together this bad boy!  We spent a lot of time together when I did the Cathedral Show House this winter.....laughing.....laughing.....and staring at pictures of her hunk of burning love husband....seriously hot!

My good friend Ally [From The Right Bank] started her project with this incredible sofa....so "Palm Beach"......

Everyone of these designers raised and.......spent their own money....plus worked their "ass" off to give these homeless children an inviting space to live.

There were 2 cottages this time....one for girls and another for boys.  There are more designers and more before and afters to share with you.....so stay tuned.

Oh yeah there is one more little bit of news........My husband is retiring his flying career from United Airlines, so on Saturday I am heading up to Chicago to take his last trip with him.

On Sunday we will fly to Hong Kong....for 36 hours.....yup.....something like 16 hours in the air one way.  

16 HOURS!!!

Gurl....is gonna be tired and cranky.....just saying.

AND......the final thing is about Mary Ann from Classic.Casual.Home.  She has a giveaway that is close to her heart that supports ROWAN, Rural Orphans & Widows Aids Network.  Please go visit and read about this worthy cause.

You guys are more than awesome......

This is so heartwarming! Every room is alive with color and will help to brighten the loves of those living at Room Service.
You deserve a cocktail regardless!

We've done many Asian flights....they are something else. Our son lived in Seoul for years. He's moving to Hangzhon, China the end of this month.
More long trips in our future!!!

Sherry these rooms are fantastic, and such an incredibly awesome thing for these designers to do...so much love!

Congrats to your hubby! I remember when my brother-in-law retired from Delta....we all got special clearance to greet him with big signs and lots of embarrassment for him as he came off the plane. It was a very cool memory.

Have an awesome flight with your man! So cool! xo

Congrats to the hubs lady. And thanks for sharing the Room Service pics. Rest up, you are in for a LONG flight. Sure you'll find the humor somehow, even when you can't feel your legs from sitting so long. Be safe and have a blast.

Erika at BluLabel Bungalow said...

Thanks for sharing a preview of the spaces! You are always so supportive. So much to celebrate this Summer. I'm sure David's last flight will be bittersweet, but that means more one-on-one time with his favorite girl :wink:
