It is rare that interiors designers create spaces for the public (unless you're in commercial design, obviously). So, when the opportunity came up to work on a public project that will serve some good, I had to jump at the chance. This type of design has both it's challenges, like building a room in two days, and it's rewards, being viewed by thousands of show visitors. Serving Up Style: Designers Fighting Lupus is Portland's premier interior design event. This year, 12 prominent design teams were invited to create fantastic, stunning, and whimsical dining environments for a four-day showcase during the Portland Fall Home & Garden Show. Serving Up Style culminates with a fundraiser gala, auction, and awards ceremony. All proceeds from the event benefit the lupus awareness and service initiatives of Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus.

JASON BALL interiors was honored to receive the Creativity Award for Metamorphosis: Raw to Refined at this year's event. This room is an homage to all the local artists, craftspeople and builders we have in Portland, OR. The sheer amount of talent available in this city to the design community is amazing and inspiring. Additional pictures of the other rooms coming shortly.
In the meantime, here is Metamorphosis: Raw to Refined.
