It’s been an intense week since the last One Room Challenge update.
I was in NYC to visit the 911 memorial, something I’ve been wanting to do since staring right at Tower Two falling down that fearful day in Manhattan. Then the last day there again another horrible terror attack took place just a few blocks away.
We continued to DC for the 24th annual gala for KNOCK OUT ABUSE the charity I co-founded 24 years ago to help victims of domestic violence.
Two days later one of the worst mass murders take place by a man with a domestic violence record. Something that had been the very topic of our event —the importance of getting guns out of the hands of men with a domestic violence assault record.
The 2017 event chairwomen made these awesome surprise posters for my co-founder Cheryl and me. I had no idea when we started this (in my twenties) that it would be such a big success year after year! To share this year with my son Luke, now 16, made it even more special.
The event brings me finally to my update for ORC!!
The table tops for the gala were made by Andre Wells Events and I’m hoping we can make this art in to the perfect poster for my library on time!
I love it!
With the overwhelming amount of #metoo stories shared in the media and by so many of my friends I really want this on my wall in solidarity with all my “sisters” out there.
I spent ten years as a fashion model in NYC where dealing sexual harassment was almost part of the job.
I’m playing around with the animal theme, trying to figure out the wall decor.
Gold deer head from HAYNEEDLE.
FAUX fur pillow from Bed Bath and Beyond.
I’m working in some natural elements.
LOVE this little side table from THE MINE.
I’m back in LA now and have to scramble to finish the space as next Wednesday is the reveal!
Fall is in the air even here and it’s nice to be able to wear a sweater….
…and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the Pacific.
Hope you had a good week!
