Tonight I went to an amazing event for an amazing cause. @savvygivingbydesign This is a wonderful organization that raises money to remodel a child’s room that is going through treatment for cancer and other serious medical issues. On the right hand corner is @jljefflewis speaking at the event. He was wonderful and kind. September is childhood cancer awareness month, which hits close to home as my son was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at six months old and threw us into a world no one should@ever have to be a part of. We are the lucky ones as it has been three years since his diagnosis and he is a healthy three and a half year old. #childhoodcancerawareness #gogold #savvygivingbydesign #charitynight #charityevent
Happy Boss’s Day to our #1 Boss Lady, Susan W! 👸🏼 Susan started #SavvyGivingbyDesign in 2014, and works overtime (between running her own design biz and raising 5 daughters) to make a difference in the lives of the children and families SGBD gets to help. One of her favorite quotes throughout the years is “you have never really loved until you have done something for someone who can never truly repay you” 💚💙 leave some #bossday love for Miss Susan (as our SGBD kids love to call her) below! 👇🏼
#latergram from a perfect night with @slam4sam at @savvygivingbydesign Room to Heal event. Getting the chance to meet and chat with @jljefflewis and Gage was so cool. They could not have been nicer or more genuine. Our favorite #bravolebrities ever! @bravoandy, keep them around forever! #savvygivingbydesign #stelladotstyle #giveback #bravotv #flippingout #dreamnight #radioandy #obsessed

Have you seen it yet?
Great night of fun, tears and laughter at the Savvy Giving By Design Fundraiser with @jljefflewis Saturday.

2 years ago we made over Charley's room as she was fighting Leukemia. Today, we get to attend her "No more chemo" party. So excited to give this girl a huge hug . Grateful to this sweet family for being in our video and helping to raise funds for SGBD to pay it forward. We have about 5 families waiting for spaces and are working hard to make sure they happen . So happy for you Charley and family. 💖💖💖
My favorite photos are the first looks. The smiles from the kids and the emotion from the parents. This mama has been through hell, joys and heartaches. When parents know their child has a safe place to be that is so different, it can be overwhelming. We adore these moments.
I'm so honored to be part of @savvygivingbydesign and the Tampa chapter just finished up our latest install. Owning @neatmethod Tampa gives us a little leg up on the whole closet organization part and we are so incredibly grateful to @closetart1 for installing these amazing built ins for us. Stayed tuned for more room pics by the ever so talented @seamuspayne and follow us on Facebook for the full reveal! @pontoninteriors @neatmethod @thecontainerstore #neattampa #nonprofit #roommakeover #tcs #savvygivingtampa #savvygivingbydesign
Yesterday was simply amazing. So many people came together to make Kaitlyn’s room makeover possible. Professional photos coming soon but we just had to share some of the behind the scenes pictures. Kaitlyn is an amazing, brave girl and we loved creating an oasis for her.
This is happening! Please join us for a fun evening sponsored by @monogramappliances. All proceeds go to the non profit @savvygivingbydesign Denver. This is our first event and we are proud to be the first chapter. We create healing spaces at no cost to children facing a medical crisis. Great event, great cause, and all charitable - don’t miss it! Link in comments. 💙💚❤️
To a child, their bedroom should be a place to be themselves, feel loved and safe. To a child facing a medical crisis, their bedroom is where they gain the strength and comfort needed to heal. @savvygivingbydesign is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide comfort, support, and healing to families with a child facing a medical crisis by transforming the interior spaces of their homes at no cost to them. Run by volunteers, they rely on cash donations and grants, as well as donors who provide in-kind materials and labor to support their cause. Kylie Ponton, founder of Savvy Giving by Design’s Tampa chapter, recently transformed the bedroom of 2 1/2 year old Trinity who is fighting Neuroblastoma. Their story is featured in our February issue—link in profile. . . . . . #tampa #tampabay #tampabayparenting #tampamoms #tampabaymoms #floridafamilyfun #tampabayfamilies #tampafamilies #tampakids #tampabaykids #tampabaybloggers #family #playroomideas #savvygivingbydesign
OK.... just one more sneak peek before we do the big reveal on Sunday! Stay tuned. A huge shout out to @brightgreendoor whose blog post inspired the conversion of these previously ugly bifold closet doors to gorgeous painted shiplap beauties! And the biggest thanks to @kayu_kayan_tampa for having the skills and making them happen! We love how they turned out!! 🌟🌟🌟 #savvygivingbydesign #savvygivingtampa #shiplap #shiplapdoors #closetdesign #closetdoors #allthefeels #finnsfight

Creating safe functional spaces for kids faced with a medical crisis is our number one priority as designers, but making it whimsical and cohesive is our wheelhouse. All of our rooms are designer by professional designers which means you get the best of both worlds! #savvygivingbydesign

ROOM REVEAL UPDATE 💚💙 This Friday, sweet Zoe in San Diego gets to see her new room for the first time! Thanks to our generous Savvy Givers, we were able to put Zoe and her family up in a hotel this week while we are working on her room makeover so that her immune system isn’t compromised by the dust and construction! Zoe still has about 13 days left of #radiation appointments... we can’t wait for her to see the special space we’ve been working on for her! Who’s excited to see the reveal photos and videos?! 🙋♀️🙋♂️
I wish all my clients had that smile when we design their space. Check out that ceiling though... and the cute paint around the door. Going in to 2019 determined to find all these smiles from all the grown ups.
Meet: Finn 💚💙 Savvy Giving Tampa (@pontoninteriors) has just met with second ever recipient Finn, and his story is now live on our website! - Five year old Finn was diagnosed with #ewingssarcoma this August after some back pain started to impact Finn’s mobility. After doctors found a tumor on Finn’s spine, he immediately received emergency surgery. Since then, he’s endured another surgery and 3 rounds of chemo to target the aggressive tumor. - Finn loves all things @LEGO and @jurassicworld and shares a room with his brother Declan. 💚💙 help us create a dream space for Finn and Declan to be kids in!

So happy Morgan and her family joined us in watching the boat parade. They had to come over after and see Gideons batcave. Love it when two cancer warrior families come together. We are very thankful for the gracious surprise of a Christmas gift card they left behind. Honestly, the universe has really been figuring out ways for my kids to have a good Christmas even though we were not ready at all. @savvygivingbydesign @5girlies @insidebysavvy #savvygivingbydesign #savvyfamily #sgbd #savvyinteriors #cancerwarriors #leukemia #pediatriccancer #childhoodcancerawareness #grateful #irongideon #theadventuresofirongideon

Kasey @kaseyharveyy is about to go under anesthesia for her cataract surgery. I’m really sad that she has to go through this, as a side effect of her radiation treatments. Although at the same time, I’m eternally grateful that the incredible team at Proton Radiation saved her optical nerve, considering her tumor was growing up behind her eye socket. We are very very lucky. We are in pre-op and ran into Savvy Giving By Design @savvygivingbydesign sister Savvy! 💖. #cancersurvivor #childhoodcancer #proton #protonradiation #rhabdomyosarcoma #sideeffects #savvygivingbydesign
