The Good House: Design Is in the Details (13 photos)

Upon completion of the mural, the piece will be transported to Freehab, the Teen Project’s Life Transformation Center in Sun Valley, which serves the area’s most vulnerable addicted and homeless youths. Maxwell’s mural will help decorate Freehab’s new trade school, which will teach residents basic technical skills under the auspices of director Lauri Burns. Using a palette of colors from Dunn-Edwards’ new Then, Now & Forever collection, Maxwell says his piece “will convey a message of harmony and nurturing strength.”

Of a site visit to Freehab, Maxwell says he was “moved to find that so many of our youth are crossing into adulthood without the basic tools and support needed to become productive, self-sustaining members of society. As a parent of two teens, I understand the tremendous effort required to nurture a young life into maturity. It is important that every child has the opportunity to a smooth transition into adulthood in order to achieve their full potential.”

Dwell on Design attendees are encouraged to check in with Maxwell throughout the day as this inspiring project comes to life.

۷ Camping Retreats to Build In Your Backyard

The El Cosmico hotel in Marfa, Texas had a brilliant idea when adding outdoorsy room options for its guests: furnishing tents and teepees with items that would be normally found in a standard bedroom. For families looking to "get away," a few days in the backyard, with comfortable bedding, seating and lighting borrowed from the indoors, is the perfect last-minute weekend respite.
