A warm spirit filled the air last week as designers gathered together to celebrate the completion of Project Design 2014 Phase II at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island where more than $4 million in design, labor and materials were donated to complete the makeover of more than 50 rooms.
The interior design industry-led initiative, which has been the largest renovation project to the house in more than 28 years, began through a partnership with Kravet, and saw its first round of renovations completed last October. The goal of the two-phase project was to provide a calm and restful healing environment for parents and siblings experiencing the pain of having a seriously ill child in area hospitals.
More than 40 interior designers donated their time and talents to the cause including Brian Patrick Flynn, Elaine Griffin, Libby Langdon, Leslie Segrete, Jennifer Cohler Mason, Lisa Mende, Lindsey Coral Harper, Drew McGukin and Darrin Varden, among others. The project was chaired by Suzanne Costa, Anthony Baratta, Bunny Williams and Jennifer Nicholson.
Here’s a look at some of the completed spaces:
