I am sooo happy to announce that Vanessa Kogevinas and I are in the process of working on collaborating with and decorating a Women’s Housing Project near downtown LA (please note this is NOT the Downtown Women’s Center but another facility) and we are looking for some designers to help on this new project.
The room that will be decorated is small 12x14 and we will have a fast turn around like a month or so to do each room, start date is June 1st and we have a couple more rooms still available. PLEASE NOTE you must be a practicing designer with a website and/or at least 4-6 images that you can forward. And we ask that you please be specific when emailing us.
We are already seeking out donations from local stores and vendors and hope that each of you will do the same and help each other out during the design process. (See list below.)
Please let us know if you either have products or you want to to give your time to decorate a room. If you have any items to donate, we are looking for pieces that are in near perfect and IN WORKING ORDER not stained or damaged and could be vintage or in new condition.
If you have any of these items listed below, we ask that you only send low res pictures and the measurements to email@example.com. What ever you can donate is greatly appreciated.
Items you will NEED to decorate your room with:
Headboard or bed frame (black metal bed frame already available in the room)
Bed side table or tables
bed side lamp or lamps
Sheet sets to include a blanket or duvet (twin size)
Duvet insert (new or gently used)
1-2 sleeping pillows
Decorative pillows and inserts
Replace blind – 1 window or 2 depending on the room
Misc. (extras but not mandatory - ideas to decorate your room with)
Drapes and hardware
Hooks like coat racks
Shelving (Ikea floating etc.)
Decals (birds kids shapes)
Frames (artwork or extra molding)
Artwork or wall art
Large coffee table books or vintage books
Wallpaper rolls (or even small remnants that can be framed)
Paint and paint supplies tarps brushes pans etc.
NOTHING BREAKABLE LIKE vases, ceramic items or small figurines
If you don’t have anything to donate and maybe don’t have time to decorate a room, but would like to consult and/or help out in painting or assisting the other designers please let me know. The more people and help we have the better!
If you are out of state and want to help us with donations, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with photos and measurements.
We look forward to hearing from you and we are all very excited to be working on this new project! Vanessa De Vargas/Vanessa Kogevinas
