Austin, CEO and Founder of Hearts and Hope, Inc. Co-Chairs Melissa Ziober of RZ Design Group and Noe X. Guerra, Hearts and Hope Board member of NXG Architecture Inc. have brought together ten interior designers to create ten unique children’s bedrooms and family spaces.  In addition to being one of the interior designer’s, architect Noe X. Guerra also designed the space for the Designer Avenue to take place in and has been able to get the space built at no cost.  “It has been an incredible experience,” says Co-Chair Noe X. Guerra. “We have carpenters, electricians and craftsman all donating their time, and materials to make this event come to fruition.  I particularly want to thank Dan Reedy; of Onshore Construction for his help building the designer spaces it is a great gift! We are also thrilled to have Downtown at the Gardens as a partner, donating a store in which we can make this all happen.”

In addition, Ms. Ziober and Mr. Guerra announced that Palm Beach interior designer Jack Fhillips would donate items, which will decorate his space for a raffle during the month long event.  “We couldn’t be more pleased that Mr. Fhillips has been so generous,” said Ms. Ziober.  Other interior designers creating spaces for the event are, RZ Design Group, Katherine Shenaman Interiors, NXG Architecture, Greg Lomabardi Design, Angela Reynolds, Home Life Interiors, Carolyn Roy Interiors, The Good Stuff and Casablanca.  Designs will include a tea party room, indoor koi pond and tree house.
