On August 1, 2015, the Kid Sanctuary Campus “Sam’s Boys Cottage” held its Grand Opening Event. Alena was one of 18 Interior Designers chosen to design a room for the new Boys Cottage, which is a home for children in foster care, located  in West Palm Beach. She designed an “Under the Sea” themed room.

Special thanks to all of the vendors who generously donated merchandise for the room:

Wayfair (area rugs), Upholstery USA (headboards, pillows, poufs, and drapes), Tile Bar (accent wall tile), Lighting Design Company (light fixture), Robern (mirror), Aline DiMichele (decorative painting). Also a very special thank you to Joseph and Linda Capra, for their donation towards furnishing the room. Check out the news story here!
