Aesthetically pleasing interior design is not only for the wealthy – Dallas-based company Dwell With Dignity makes sure of it. This Texas non-profit, run by Kim Turner and Lisa Robinson, works to create beautiful and functional interior spaces for families struggling with homeless and poverty. They provide and install home interiors for families that include furnishings and art, bedding and kitchen supplies, and food in the pantry.
The founders say: “If we can change a person’s surroundings, we can change their outlook on life. Exposing children (especially) to a nurturing home environment, that includes good design and art, can inspire a standard of living that will carry-over to future generations. Exposing parents to this same environment will allow them to see the positive impact it has on their family; inspiring them to maintain a standard of living they can be proud of and thrive in.”
It’s really interesting to see an organization using interior design for good. Usually interior design specialists are more reserved for wealthier segments of the population, so it’s awesome to see the love being shared with all types of people.
