-- Whether seeking unique ways to entertain for the upcoming holidays, celebrate with friends, begin new family traditions or showcase the family history, talents and passions in the home’s interior design, the Packhams have shown the way. In doing so, they have utilized the beautifully structured pages of Inspired Design
to reveal the classic truth that any home is made more beautiful when it is filled with love, joy and the determination to make those who enter it feel welcomed.
Decorating for the holidays can be daunting, whether it is in preparation for family or for a spouse’s office party. Roxanne offers simple DIY ideas for making your home welcoming and comfortable for guests. Hannah offers, from a daughter’s perspective, ways of getting the entire family involved in holiday preparations while teaching your children the art of hospitality. With today’s busy, high-tech lifestyle, these are important lessons we often overlook.
With a desire to celebrate the beauty of home and family, the mother-daughter duo has skillfully melded their own family memories and candid observations with photos of impeccably designed interiors to remind the reader of the home’s power and ability to change lives. Their purpose is straightforward:
“To inspire you to create a home that touches the soul of those within, as well as all who walk through the doors.”Inspired Design
is far from being just another photo-rich book on interior design. Instead, it is a beautifully rich hospitality book focused as much on what visitors entering the home will feel as on what they might see. Once their collaboration on the book was finished, this mother-daughter duo knew they had found their calling. To continue the work they had begun, Roxanne and Hannah founded Inspired31.org
, an organization devoted to inspiring teenage girls, mothers and others to find and follow God’s plan for their lives. Along with fundingInspired31.org, sales of the book go straight to Heart of Hope (a ministry that advocates for orphans and at-risk children in Romania) and other selected charities. The Packhams’ unified mission is to change lives one heart at a time.
