Educated, versatile, creative Interior Designers in the New York metro area want to come to the rescue of homeowners, apartment dwellers and anyone else whose living (or working) space could use refreshing, renewing or revamping. That’s part of the reason why the New York Metro Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has launched Spring Spruce Up 2017. The other is that it has a long tradition of giving back. In this spirit, it has partnered with Ronald McDonald® House New York and Ronald McDonald® House of Long Island to give 100% of the proceeds to these two nonprofits, which provide a home away from home for families with children undergoing medical treatment.
Consumer sign-up for Spruce Up 2017 begins on March 1 and will continue until all the slots are filled. The ASID New York Metro Chapter matches participating consumers to one of its experienced Interior Designers based on the appropriate expertise, needs and location for a particular project. Design consultations are in-person and can take place in-home, in-office or other locale of the client’s choosing. They will be conducted March 20, 2017 through June 20, 2017.
“We are excited to help residents of the New York metro area solve their design dilemmas, however great or small, while also giving back to children and families in need,” said Bonnie J. Steves, Associate ASID and founding principal of BJS-Assoc. Interior Design, who is spearheading the program for the ASID NY Metro Chapter. “I would also like to thank our exclusive paint sponsor, Farrow & Ball, renowned worldwide for its paints and wallpapers.”
“Whether it’s a home or a home away from home, we know and appreciate the power of design. This is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of the important work that Ronald McDonald Houses are doing as well as of ASID,” said Matt Campo, President of Ronald McDonald House Long Island. “We are grateful for the partnership with the ASID NY Metro Chapter on Spring Spruce Up 2017,” stated Dr. Ruth C. Browne, President and Chief Executive Officer of Ronald McDonald House New York.
“We are so proud to be working alongside the dedicated ASID NY Metro chapter on Spring Spruce Up. It is a wonderful opportunity to connect with talented designers and homeowners in our greater New York City community while making their homes more orderly and beautiful. Our team at Farrow & Ball is thrilled to support the Ronald McDonald Houses of New York and Long Island in such a meaningful way,” concluded Christine Haney, Farrow & Ball Designer Marketing Manager North America.
Consultations are available in one-or two-hour time blocks (two-hour maximum) at the special rate of $100 per hour with 100% of proceeds benefitting the Ronald McDonald Houses. Interested consumers can sign up by visiting www.asidnymetro.org or by calling 212-641- 0118 with questions.
