It Pays to Work With a Professional Interior Designer
We know the 2023 Fall Home Tour has inspired many homeowners to make changes in their own homes. Should you make all the design decisions on your own? Where would you start? What colors will you work with? What accessories will make a room feel complete? If all these large and small decisions are already giving you a large or small level of anxiety, we're here to help.
CandysDirt.com just published an interesting and informational article, Why It Pays to Work With a Professional Interior Designer. You find the article — and a lot of relief — by clicking here.
What a success!!
Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for the Fall Home Tour and a big thank you to all of our amazing homeowners who opened their doors to us and all of the wonderful house sponsors, advertisers, and partners of the event!
We look forward to using the proceeds of the tour next year in the form of grants to help neighborhoods across Oak Cliff!
You Gave Local – and We Thank You
The HOC NTX Giving Day campaign for 2023 is over, and it was a big success. You guys clicked a lot of big red hearts over the last three weeks (the heart above is not clickable, by the way). Plus, we had a large last-minute donation that put us way over the top. Our goal was $10,000, and we ended up bringing in $12,808, all of which will go to our grant program to create positive local change that you will see down the road.
Congratulations to you all, plus a special shout-out to our Fundraising Chair Mike Matthews. Not only did he send out dozens of personal emails and thank-yous, but he also made a substantial personal donation.
Thanks again, amazing neighbors and friends.
