LiLu Interiors Wins Top Honor for Emily Program Design
LiLu Interiors won the American Society of Interior Designers - Minnesota’s top honor for their design of The Emily Program’s new Adolescent & Family Services building.
LiLu Interiors' Lisa Peck, ASID, LuAnne Silvia, ASID and Christina Winter, Allied Member ASID were publically praised at the American Society of Interior Designers – Minnesota (ASID MN) Awards Gala this fall for successfully transforming the Children’s Home Society and Family Services building into the newest location of The Emily Program’s outpatient Adolescent and Family Services, and residential Anna Westin House-Adolescent residential program.
When The Emily Program acquired the existing, institutional St. Paul building, it presented a designer’s challenge with its brick walls and sharp angles. Working on a tight budget required the design team to use basic materials and furnishings creatively to form a nurturing, supportive environment for Emily Program clients, residents, and staff. LiLu Interior’s design allows the building to support the diverse daily activities of The Emily Program - everything from sleeping and studying, to participating in therapy sessions and preparing food. Designers employed a colorful concept that used bright, bold color blocks and large scale patterns to warm and coordinate the more institutional elements of the existing structure.
The Emily Program’s Adolescent and Family Services facility is truly a gem and helps bring families together throughout their eating disorder treatment and recovery.
Congratulations and thank you to LiLu Interiors!
