When acclaimed interior decorator Roxanne Hughes Packham began making trips to Romania with her husband to provide much needed dental care to Romanian orphans, she knew immediately she wanted to do more to help. The only question was how. Certainly her husband’s dental skills changed lives, but her own talent lay in a field she felt was far less crucial to children who would never experience the comfort of a parent’s goodnight kiss, much less the luxury of having a beautifully decorated home. She could not help but wonder how she could possibly use her own talents to make a difference in these children’s lives.
Do not underestimate the power of your home, nor its ability to change lives,” writes designer extraordinaire Roxanne Packham. “A cup of hot tea and an hour in a cozy nook spent listening to a friend can be life-altering. Sending well-loved, cared-for children into the world to contribute to our society in positive, meaningful ways is one of, if not the most significant contributions you will ever make, and your home is a significant part of this endeavor.
