Blue Print, an interior design company based in Dallas, recently helped redororate a new space in a local homeless center, according to KXAS-TV.
The company, which is known for its high-end styling, helped decorate a room for the Dallas Life Homeless Shelter. The company uses different shades of blue and white to accent the space. The shelter has rooms for more than 500 residents of North Texas, according to the media outlet.
"Companies like Blue Print coming out and doing this shows you people want to give back, we're really thrilled," Bob Sweeney, the executive director of the establishment, told the news source.
The source said other interior design companies have also donated time to make the 51-room living space more aesthetically pleasing.
Individuals who are interested in becoming interior designers along with donating their time to a cause may get the opportunity. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in this field is expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018.
