Last week, we announced that we have the privilege of partnering with Lowe’s this Spring to makeover a space in somebody’s home–interior or exterior–and it could be anywhere in the country! There was a small application window of just 48 hours and over 600 #CLJtotheRescue submissions poured in from all 50 states and DC, too! Wow!
We initially thought we would be able to decide over a couple days, but we were so overwhelmed with the amount of applications and all of your stories, we wanted to read every single one! We laughed hysterically and cried with you, too. Thank you for being so willing to open up your homes to us–that’s a huge deal and we realize that. We have the very best readers and such a wide variety of people and cultures and homes that read Chris Loves Julia. I just wanted to pause and say, we see you and we hear you and we wish we could help all of you! Some of your spaces are so close. Some are very humbling.
With that said, we’re excited to announce….we’ll be headed to Long Island, New York to makeover Jennifer and Ryan Freeman’s space!
They purchased this New York home as a sort of “new beginnings” for their family after a bumpy road and this is what you currently see when you walk into their home:
The Freemans have dreams of it becoming an beautiful entry/sitting room, worthy of a first impression. With a family room to the left and a dining room to the right, the odd-shaped, double-duty space is a challenge we’re up for!
We’re excited to work with Jennifer and Ryan over the next few weeks designing and planning the space and then in April, Chris and I will be flying to Long Island to execute the whirlwind makeover in just 2 days with the help of Lowe’s volunteers.
While it’s heart-breaking that we could only pick one space, the rest of you–don’t you give up! You got this. We’re rooting for you all.
