ALAMO, Calif., May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elsie Green House & Home today announced the donation of a comprehensive home makeover valued at over $25,000 to a deserving family of five in the Southern California city of Inglewood. The in-kind design project will include a design plan, home furnishings, installation, and final styling touches that make a house a home. The home was revealed to the family on April 30th.
Philanthropy is one of Elsie Green's core values, and founder Laurie Furber could not stop thinking about a deserving family she met through a Los Angeles area non-profit. Though the family had little to spare they decided in 2015 to forego Christmas gifts for themselves and instead give that money to a family less fortunate. "I couldn't help but be inspired and I felt that they deserved to be inspired too," stated Furber. "I've seen how good design can be transformational and wanted to provide a warm and inclusive environment that gave each family member a little space of their own."
Furber drew inspiration from close to home—her own family of five. The family would need a hard working home that was both beautiful and functional. She tapped her design network and was able to secure additional in-kind partnerships from Victoria Smith of sfgirlbybay, Mais Oui Floral Design, Michael Roland, Brian Cutts, Caitlin Fleming of Sacramento Street, Zarpana Design, Elizabeth Messina, Cedric Terrell, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware. The design plan was simple— create a light and spacious space with splashes of bright color and innovative storage solutions that a home with three teenagers requires.
Furber chose a base of bright white and accented with grey, blues, and a splash of pink for the youngest daughter's room. In the living room, custom shelving, a new sofa bed, and vintage furniture pieces added beautiful warmth to the room. Both bedrooms were fitted with customized storage, new beds, organic bedding and beautiful decorative accessories. The final touch in the guesthouse is crisp white linen window treatments.
