Upward Bound House

Have you heard about the Upward Bound House? Upward Bound House is a community-based, social service agency that takes in homeless families, to help them get back on their feet. The Upward Bound House actually used to be a Budget Motel, and probably looked like one until recently eighteen designers came together to design different rooms using donations from local retailers, as wall as friends and family. You are not going to believe how amazing it turned out!! This would be my dream. I can imagine the trill of giving back by doing what you love most, talk about food for the soul!

Here is my FAVORITE!! It's designed by Nadia Geller and it's gorgeous! I would love to move right in. I'm dying for that sofa!

thanks for the post Gina! it was an amazing experience and i'm grateful for the opportunity and the generosity of all the wonderful vendors and individuals who donated items and labor to make my adopted room a success. you can see the professional photos (when we had electricity) at my blog

i just wanted to point out that there must be some confusion with all the posts and re-posts out there because the first few images you show for nadia geller are not from the shelter, but i agree they are beautiful.
