Special Spaces - Tucker

Special Spaces of the Triangle is a non profit organization that does bedroom make overs for children with life threatening illnesses. I was so excited when the director asked me to be the design coordinator for the chapter because I had so much fun helping with the previous two rooms. This is what the room looked like when we first got there Saturday morning………


Tucker is a 3 year old boy who loves the outdoors and camping. He has a lung disorder called PCD and has to do a lot of treatments and hospital visits. As the lead designer, I wanted to create a wilderness lodge where he could relax and get away from all of that !


We had a great group of artists from Carolina Creative Artisans volunteer to paint a faux wood wall and the two doors. They also painted the fish and “Gone Fishing” sign.  I made a tent flap valance for the window and ordered the bedding from Serena and Lily.


We painted the wood signs and installed this amazing mural from Magic Murals. I’m going to have to show you the whole thing.


I wanted Tucker and his brother to feel like they were looking right out into the wilderness when they were in their beds.


My Dad built the porch roof/canopy from cedar planks.


Spoonflower donated the “Mod Grain” fabric and Janet made the poufs and pillows. The artist there was so nice to change the color way to orange because that is Tucker’s favorite color.


We ordered the log furniture and dozens of volunteers worked on sanding and applying poly, it turned out beautifully.


My Dad helped so much pulling this room together….Thanks Dad !

And thanks to ALL the volunteers who worked so hard on Tucker’s room.


I think he loves it………………




We even got some coverage on the local news, Yay !


Custom window treatments can be the single most important element in pulling together your decorating scheme. 
Contact me to provide you with up to date window treatments that you are excited about.
