The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley (RMHGHV) is getting a makeover by leading interior designers through ‘Designing Hope,’ a project to “create comfort in a home-away-from-home.” According to Hamlet Hub, in collaboration with aspire design and home magazines, and the American Society of Interior Designers, the RMHGHV will receive a professionally remodeled house including all twelve of its guest rooms by expert creative designers who have a passion for helping others.
According to Christina Riley, the Executive Director of RMHGHV, there are two major goals to this project. One is to update the rooms “to better comfort the families,” and the other goal is to “treat this as one of the fundraising initiatives for the year.” The House hopes to find sponsors for each room who in sponsoring the room will also be supporting the family staying there. The conclusion of the Designer Hope project will be celebrated with a Designer Showcase Gala that will include an exclusive tour of the remodeled rooms, a silent auction, entertainment, fine dining, and cocktails among other features.
The project will be led by nationally acclaimed New York City-based designer Corey Damen Jenkins, who has been named Honorary Design Chair for the project. Jenkins is known for “his mixing of vivid colors with layered patterns to create inspired, inventive and unexpected spaces.” Some of the renowned designers working on the project include Vanessa Deleon Associates, Bjorn Bjornsson Design, Lori Miller – LCG Interior Design, Suzanne Goldberg – SBG Design, and The Lewis Design Group among many others.
Ronald McDonald House Charities has been supporting families as a child receives medical treatment since 1974. With locations all around the world, Ronald McDonald House Charities is committed to providing families with the care and resources they need. The Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley supports more than 200 families each year.
With modern upgrades and designs to brighten their stay, the nation’s leading interior designers committing their efforts to remodeling the RMHGHV are going to transform the experience of the children and their families staying there. With uplifting and unique designs, the families will be surrounded by a positive environment, but even more special is the love that will fill the House from all participants in the Design Hope project.
