We here at SMW Design are delighted to announce our participation in the expansion of our Ronald McDonald House at Stanford.
Ronald McDonald House at Stanford continues to see an overwhelming number of families requesting a place to stay. This home-away-from-home is full nearly every night of the year, forced to turn away families in need. Additionally, families are staying longer amounts of time. Medical advances and innovative research are allowing doctors to treat and save children who were once thought terminal and perform more sophisticated procedures in outpatient settings, which require young patients to stay in close proximity to the hospital.
The House now offers families so much more than its founders could have hoped for, it’s more than a room with a shower and a bed. The program offerings at the House have grown exponentially and make a huge impact in creating the community environment that supports these families. Together it all makes Ronald McDonald House at Stanford the place “where hope has a home.”
We consider this a huge honor to be associated with such an amazing facility - and we are completely humbled by the heartwarming stories of the families using Ronald McDonald House at Stanford every day. Stay tuned for more information . . .
After what has been a long break - I'm actually re-discovering my love of Pinterest! Maybe it's because we're starting to shoot imagery for SMWHome . . . maybe it's because it's a great place to noodle around in the evenings before bed . . . maybe it's just a simple banquet of delightful images to inspire me.
But - I thought I'd share a few of my favourites here . . . and keep this conversation going as well.
I LOVE this bedroom. I love the colours. I love the restrained use of pattern (WHO thought I'd ever say THAT!). And, clearly, I love the artwork.
I was certainly excited to see the newly designed website at House Beautiful - a much cleaner, more image driven site as compared to their previous one. I was also delighted to see that they had included a compilation of all of my existing articles.
Greetings, We always like to start off the new year with somewhat of a BANG around here - so we are excited to announce . . . Scot Meacham Wood Home. Coming Fall 2015.
"Acclaimed interior designer Scot Meacham Wood is thrilled to announce the Fall 2015 launch of Scot Meacham Wood Home. SMW Home centers on the textile collection which marks Scot’s evolution from an interior designer into a lifestyle brand influenced by his formative years at Ralph Lauren, the design atelier where he honed his creative talent for thirteen years. While SMW Design will continue to service clients’ interior needs, Scot Meacham Wood Homewill serve as a natural extension of Scot’s design aesthetic and personality."
Our new exciting lifestyle brand will include a striking collection of classic and custom designed tartans, a curated selection of antiques, classically designed furniture, as well as home accessories for any stylish abode.
Bookmark our website - as we will be previewing pieces for the next few months before the official launch of our collection this fall. Exciting times, Scot
Those of you who are regular readers have probably noticed a particular silence regarding our regular Holiday Decorating Contest. A few of you have even emailed me privately to find out what the details are going to be.
Well, the simple truth is I'm not going to be able to host the contest this year. We've been dealing with an illness and death in my immediate family - and I just don't have the bandwidth to handle the contest this year.
I'm also going to be traveling a good part of December, both on personal and business matters.
Welcome to the musings of interior designer/stylist Scot Meacham Wood - living in San Francisco and working on projects across the United States. Following are images that inspire me, events that delight me, and anything that brings a smile to my face.
