Freedom Fest Barn Stall/Dining Room...

This weekend is the Freedom Fest fundraising event for the Humane Society. Along with Jon Carloftis, Country Living, and several other designers -- we spent the day transforming a horse stall into a dining room. The photo above shows the Finderskeepers Market horse stall before the installation. Please note the temperatures were in the nineties and no nails or staples could be used. Needless to say -- it was a challenge not unlike one of those seen on a reality TV design competition. Instead of trying to completely transform the space into a formal dining room, we opted to be inspired by the surroundings. We kept things simple and natural utilizing reclaimed woods, cotton canvas, jute, and a mix of vintage and modern accessories to evoke a cozy, yet stylish farmhouse aesthetic. On Friday, Badgley Mischka will be the guest speakers during brunch. Saturday brings the main event with auction winners dining in their chosen dining spaces. Thanks to everyone involved with the event, 90% of the all the proceeds raised goes to the animals.


  1. This is really beautiful! I love your version of farmhouse, very inspiring. Hope the auction is successful and I'm very jealous of whoever gets to eat in your stall!

  2. Realmente ficou muito bonito o mix de acessórios vintage mais a decoração do ambiente simples e acolhedor. Com certeza chamará atenção desse evento!
