Serving Up Style with Urban Chic!
Kimberlee Jaynes Interior Designs is privileged to be a part of Urban id a design collabrative that was invited to design a "dining room" for the third annual Molly's Fund fundraiser for lupus. Serving Up Style is held in the Fall Home and Garden show at the Expo this weekend.
We started with the idea of "Urban Chic" dining in the middle of the street just outside our actual doors... on 319 NW 9th Everette. We enlisted the very creative people (Bob Lee & Jim Harrison pictured ) from ConstructaVision to recreate our street. The finished product is complete with brick garage entry and metal door, building light overhanging the door and an actual curb, they did an amazing job!!! A big thank you to the owner Gary Lee!
The elegant table setting, gorgeous hand-loomed street gray wool rug from Tufenkian Carpets Portland and black shaded crystal chandelier is the perfect foil for the gritty urban street scene.
The butterfly is Molly's Fund logo so of course we incorporated a butterfly here and there.
The orange pedi cab serves as our bar and is so Portland, you see them on the streets all over the Pearl district. Come out this weekend and support early detection of Lupus by supporting Molly's Fund. Click here to receive $2.00 off admission
We all had fun and the design process and installation was truly a team effort!
