Your Home Collaboration has just been launched to help front-line medical professionals responding to COVID-ID make their home sanctuaries so that they can look forward to returning to them after helping communities stay safe and healthy. The program is recruiting interior designers nationwide to provide free design consultations to these heroes.  The consultations are for one room with a two-hour minimum and can be done virtually or in-person (at a later date).

Interior designer Anna Maria Mannarino, (See RNAD, December, 2019, Page 28) Past President of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers, and based here, initiated this program after also working with manufacturers and local and state officials to provide much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals in the area.

“During these unprecedented times, it’s important that we are all doing what we can to say thank you to those who are on the front lines of the pandemic,” said Mannarino.  “We know that design impacts lives and good design enhances the human experience. I’m calling on all my friends and colleagues in the design community to donate a One Room Consultation to these heroes.”

Those wishing to nominate a medical professionals for the program or medical professionals themselves anywhere in the country can fill out a form requesting design services on the program’s Facebook page: or downloadable here.

The forms for interior designers across the country can be found on the Facebook page as well and are downloadable here.

In addition, vendors are encouraged to donate their products and services.  Sherwin-Williams is the first to participate.  Information for this is available on Facebook and downloadable here.
