This year has been especially exciting for Dwell with Dignity (DwD). We celebrated the new year with a goal to install 12 projects in 12 months.
Our first installation of the year was extra special and a first in so many ways - we were given our first three bedroom apartment at Family Gateway to transform for a family of six.
With four children ranging from a five-month-old girl to a nine-year-old girl, we knew this installation was going to be a challenge. Thankfully, we entered our first partnership with Interior Design Society (IDS). IDS designed and seamlessly implemented the installation with DwD guidelines and the support from our sponsors and IDS’ own resources.
The girl’s room was decorated in a spring motif of apple green, rose and white with bedding donated by Peacock Alley.
The IDS designers incorporated beautiful handmade art and repurposed furniture selected from our warehouse. IDS even used their own resources to install new carpet and tile!
In the 2nd bedroom, colorful animal prints adds a playful spirit to the room.
The shelving backs were lined with grass cloth and compliments the soothing earth tones and fun teal accents.
We couldn’t be more thankful for our partnership with IDS and the continued support from our sponsors.
Our next exciting adventure will be in April with the opening of Thrift Studio. Some of Dallas’ amazing designers and retailers are designing vignettes with thrifty finds and of course you can’t miss Peacock Alley’s pop-up within our pop-up!
