Free Design Consultations Offered to Medical Pros
HOLMDEL, NJ — An effort aimed at offering free design consultations to frontline medical professionals battling the COVID-19 pandemic has been launched by the interior design community.
The program, “Your Home Collaboration,” was initiated by Anna Maria Mannarino, past president of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers, in an effort to “help frontline medical professionals responding to COVID-19 make their home sanctuaries, so that they can look forward to returning to them after helping communities stay safe and healthy.”
The program, said Mannarino, is recruiting interior designers to provide free design consultations to the medical pros. The consultations are for one room with a two-hour minimum. They can be done virtually or in-person, at a later date, Mannarino said.
“During these unprecedented times, it’s important that we’re 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, can fill out a form requesting design services on the program’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/yourhomecollab/.
Vendors are also being encouraged to donate their products and services, Mannarino said.
