designLOVE

A Giving Program that helps create spaces that foster hope, health and happiness for people who need a little extra love.

Group Hug

Through designLOVEthe Happy Place Interiors Giving Program, Interior Design Consultations are provided at no cost for people who are facing challenging times so they can have a space that the fosters hope, health and happiness they deserve.

We know it can take a village to rally around a friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor going through a tough time, such as a serious illness or helping out a single mom who's been on the non-stop hustle.

 

Studies show thoughtfully designed spaces can reduce stress and have a positive impact on mental health. Studies also show biophilic design can boost our immune systems, aid physical recovery, reduce anxiety, improve cognitive  performance and make for a better night’s sleep. 

So let's gather the village, combine resources and let's show your special someone just how much they are loved —
let's create a space of respite, 
rejuvenation or recovery.

What does a no cost 
designLOVE service include?

 

A designLOVE Interior Design Consultation
and one hour of follow up design guidance.
 

 

The personalized Interior Design Consultation will give ideas, recommendations and establish a design plan for
friends and family to execute resulting in a functional and beautiful space for your loved one.


The designLOVE Consultation is similar to the popular Ideas & Inspiration Design ConsultationTogether, you'll explore furniture arrangement, paint color, Feng Shui principles and more. By considering factors such as color psychology, lighting nuances, and spatial arrangements, we aim to create a space that not only looks beautiful but also fosters hope, healing and happiness.

 

From simple changes, such as better furniture arrangement and strategically placed plants, to a full makeover, we'll develop a design plan during the Consultation for a space that will foster well-being. Design recommendations and ideas are based on your budget — or lack of budget. This plan will serve as a guide for friends and family to execute the transformation.

 

Friends and family members come together and contribute their resources, time, and effort to bring the design plan to life.

 

This collaborative approach ensures the transformation is both beautiful and also a meaningful expression of love and care.

For tradespeople & retailers

Are you a skilled tradesperson or connected to a retailer that would like to help these people in need? From donating your painting or handy skills to donating items such as bedding, plants or decorative items, we would love to build this community to help even more people find some hope, health and happiness during tough times.

We believe when people are in an environment that helps foster living their best life — everyone wins. A place to live that feels like home is a foundation for success. This is why since 2016, we have donated a percentage of profits to local 501(c)3 charities that help people find, fix or furnish homes.

In 2024, Happy Place Interiors created designLOVE, a Giving Program where free Interior Design Consultationare given to help support people in need.

 

So when Happy Place Interiors helps you transform your house into a home, you're also helping transform the lives of people in need. It's a win, win!
