Jaci Conry wrote the article describing our experience;
After meeting with Sean (Room to Dream does not release last names of families it serves) and his family, Cantor collaborated with interior designer Shalini Sookar to transform the small room with red walls and heavy drapes into a light and airy space with ample area to display Sean’s sports memorabilia. The high school freshman also has room to hang out with his friends, and focus on schoolwork.
Leah described our design intent;
An architectural post not only anchors the bed, but also provides an opportunity for Sean to improve his agility, says Cantor. “The post features rabbeted circular wells backed with Velcro to provide targets for an assortment of Velcro-covered Wiffle and Ping-Pong balls we created.”
The best compliment came from Sean’s parents;
“We’re told Sean never leaves his room now,” says Nathanson. “It’s truly a teenage boy’s dream.”
It was such a rewarding experience and I’m happy that the Boston Globe is shining a light on a Foundation that works to improve the lives of people in need.
