Freehab Charity Design Project



At the end of last year I had the pleasure of working on another charity design project with Vanessa De Vargas and Vanessa Kogevinas This time I decorated a room for Freehab with my partner in crime Allan Dallatorre. Freehab is headed by actors, Russell Brand and Danny Trejo and Lauri Burns of The Teen Project. Freehab is a rehab center located in Sun Valley. The project will help those who want and need to get back on their feet who are suffering from alcohol and drug addiction problems. Allan and I didn’t have a lot of time or supplies so we worked with what we had. Allan was genius enough to create two faux headboards with just a can of sample paint. A few key thrift store pieces and a reupholstered chair really brought it all together. I hope the residences at Freehad enjoy the space we created and I hope it helps them with their path to recovery. Happy Giving Everyone!..xoxo Typhanie

P.S. I LOVE charity projects and I LOVE giving back. I hate that it has taken me so long to post about this wonderful project but sometimes life just gets in the way. Many of the centers I’ve worked with still need donations. Anything you can provide is a blessing. I’ve included a list of the charities below. Thank You!!

ct-pantone-color-of-year-20131206-001“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®….Hmmm not 100% sure I’m feeling this color.

Bone of Contention



I’m never one to argue when I see a fabulous product. In fact, as someone who designs products herself I can appreciate all the blood, sweat and tears that goes into bringing ones creation to life. And as you may know I’m all for buying what you love, trend or no trend. But what really spins my head sometimes is the gap between fab and ridiculous. For instance, I’ve seen these wishbone paperweights all over the place. I think it’s an amazing home accessory and if you are a dreamer like me, it’s something inspiring to have in your office. I want one! I want to look at it every day and remember that wishes do come true. So on my journey to find “The” wishbone I came across one for $48 and one for $58 and then one for $3,950…Whoooat! Don’t get me wrong I know luxe when I see it but $3,950? As a decorator I’m happy to say price tags like these for what the product is still make me a bit light headed. Yes, in my head I know the difference in quality between a $48 product and a $3,950 product but the real questions is, do I know it in my heart?…Happy Decorating Everyone!
