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. This is the third Kid Sanctuary Campus Home that has been built, and it was such a special project to be part of.

Special thanks to all of the companies who generously donated merchandise:

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