If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably heard me brag about my favorite Instagramming contractor, Dennis. If you don't know, contractors who instagram are awesome. It's like hmmm, I wonder if they installed that wall tile yet [scroll phone] why yes they have! Moving on now. Well, this week I found out that another member of Dennis' team, Val, also uses Instagram and has taken some of the coolest shots of some of the projects we are working on together over the past couple of months.

A month or so ago I had the wonderful opportunity to design a couple of rooms for the Room to Dream Foundation. The way it all came about was kind of interesting (to me, anyway). Linds and I were at a cocktail party last fall in Newport and met Gail Ravgiala with Design New England. Gail is one of those people who really talks to you when she talks to you, like not looking over your should to see what other important people are there. I always appreciate that at big, mingly-type events. During this conversation I went off on some monologue about how sometimes our profession feels kind of shallow. Which was one of those moments, after it came out of my mouth, I was internally like "seriously, Stephanie, wrong crowd". But Gail then suggested I look in to the Room to Dream Foundation, an organization that designs rooms for children suffering with various types of illness. That very next day my friend and very talented designer Rachel Reider posted photos on instagram of a room she was installing that weekend for the organization. I commented that I really wanted to get involved, she passed my name along to the founder, Stefan and a couple of months later I met Gavin. You can read more about Gavin's project specifics HERE.

Last month I had the huge honor of having one my my projects photographed by my friend Michael for the Boston Globe Magazine's "Family Friendly" issue. And thanks to his crazy good camera skills, we made the cover! Lynn, one of my favorite clients ever, worked in the magazine industry prior to motherhood so she had a good idea how things were going to work. And then my sweet, sweet friend Lindsay helped with styling, schlepping, and all the other glorious stuff no one reading those glossy pages ever sees. It was hands down the most fun shoot I've been a part of. The cherry on top was total cooperation by the star of the show, Miss Anna. Here are some pics that were included in the article and some that were did not. You can read the article, written by my talented friend Marni Katz, here.
