I recently had the chance to install a VERY special makeover project with Afsoon Kisirwani, from Rug Culture for Lou’s Place, which is the only daytime women’s refuge in Sydney. The project began in March when we met with Nicole, the Director of Lou’s Place to discuss the makeover of the shelter. We put our heads together a came up with a fresh new decor plan for the common room and healing room that was looking very tired and cluttered, as you can see in the images below.

Nicole and her team put in hour upon hour to clear out the clutter and make way for the amazing new furniture that was being donated by our generous suppliers to breathe new life into the space. When everything arrived we rolled up our sleeves and got to work decorating each of the rooms to transform them into a space which felt inviting and nurturing. Everyone was thrilled with the finished results and I’m so excited to finally be able to share them with you!

Lou’s Place is an amazing daytime refuge in Sydney for women in crisis, suffering homelessness, fleeing domestic violence or in need of support. The terrace house is a private charity which receives no government funding and relies on the generous support of the general public, partners and volunteers. We want to say a BIG thank you to our wonderful suppliers who helped make this project happen and if you would like to help you can visit the Lou’s Place website here.
