The Good Shepherd Center for Homeless Women & Children, located near downtown Los Angeles, provides a home for disadvantaged women while helping them get back on their feet. Earlier this year, designers Vanessa Kogevinas and Vanessa de Vargas organized the Good Shepherd Charity Design project, with a goal of re-decorating 30 of the shelter's rooms.They brought together a team of 30 designers, who, working entirely pro bono, with donated materials, managed to complete the project in 3 months. The results are breathtaking, and a testament to the talent and generosity of the decorators involved. As Irene Lovett, one of the designers involved, says: "Everyone deserves to live beautifully".
