Several months ago, Lisa Mende contacted me about a painting for the room that she and Traci Zeller were designing for the Ronald McDonald House Long Island, I was thrilled.
First Lisa sent me an inspiration board.
and Traci sent me a memo sample of the fabric.
They added that this office was intended to be a quiet place for the parent's of sick children to take care of personal business. Lisa used the word "focus" to help guide me on what they were after. Something pretty but not too energetic.
Having this much visual information about a room with a clear purpose made my job easier and really enjoyable.
I took many of the colors directly from the fabric, a rare luxury to have a sample in my hands.
The result was "Cocoon".
Traci and Lisa even dubbed the room the cocoon after my painting.
Its a wonderful, cozy space and I am so honored that they asked for my help.
