By Design Interiors was honored to be a part of the team responsible for a make-over of the lobby and guest bathroom at the Santa Maria Hostel shelter in northwest Houston.The project completion in November was celebrated as many gathered to dedicate the space.HomeAid Houston, a Greater Houston Builders Association charity worked with Dennis Haws, the project's Remodeler Captain and owner of All Star Construction and Leslie King with Greymark Construction to complete the renovation called Project Welcome Home. By Design Interiors donated the design work and acquisition of furnishings and accessories and the Women Contractors Association provided the underwriting of the project through their "Boots & Bling" fund raiser.
One of the functions of the shelter is to provide housing for female veterans facing homelessness. The HomeAid team enhanced the shelter's lobby with a new reception desk, flooring and paint, new furniture and accessories and window treatments. The guest bathroom was a complete renovation with a new toilet, sink, flooring and light fixtures.
Santa Maria is committed to providing services for women and their children in crisis. It is also the largest multi-site substance abuse treatment center serving both women and their children in the State of Texas.
One of the current residents expressed her thanks to By Design at the dedication, “thank you so much for making this such a beautiful place, you not only gave us a nice looking space, but a place to proudly call home.” By Design Interiors, along with the other team members were recognized and thanked for their involvement, however BDI believes we were the ones blessed by this project.
