The Power of a Haven For Healing - Part 1

By
Home Stager with Decorate To Sell - Merrimack Valley Real Estate Staging

Haven For Healing is an outreach project sponsored by the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition and IRIS - Interior Redesign Industry Specialists.

The project is bittersweet - redesigners renew the space of a woman battling Ovarian Cancer.

It is bittersweet because redesigners get to do what we love and we get to meet and renew the home of some really great women who are battling this dreadful disease.

This past weekend the New England Chapter of Haven for Healing - Jill Hosking, Kathy Narkowictz, Susan Noel and Margaret Innis - had the privilege of redesigning the Master Bedroom of Sue G.  Once you sit down with Sue you realize you have found a new BFF - Best Friend Forever!

The room was a challenge - 
       small space 
       locked into the bed placement
       large furniture pieces.

The fun part -
       The paint change!
        Head board trick - we'll tell you about that later (smile)
        The comforter was the inspiration piece - great colors!

Please enjoy the pix!
We look forward to sharing Sue's story in a subsequent blog...

Hi Gary - Thank you for your comment - the rooms are very different from each other - and that is what really helps the client - a way to have a fresh beautiful place to heal.

Hi Virginia - Yes, this is a volunteer effort - IRIS redesigners are volunteering their time and effort to create havens for healing  - this is a project with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.  A very simple way to give back and help women battling this disease.  Check out the www.weredesign.com website.

Hi Kathy - Thank you for stopping by - we all do get caught up in taking care of everyone else and neglecting our own spaces.  This is a way to help women battling this disease - many times they have put their needs on hold to take care of their families and now need a space to heal and become stronger.  Please check out the website for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition - www.ovarian.org

Margaret Ann - This is beautiful.  I have to call you about this endeavor - I'm not sure if I mentioned to you in the Dewey training...the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is near and dear to my heart.
