“Any time I’m designing a space for children, I always think of my own children for inspiration — whenever I create an atmosphere that is intentional for them, I get to really see them thrive,” Joanna, a mother of four, told People. “So when I was creating this space for St. Jude, I was thinking of the children there and I was also thinking about their families, who have basically been uprooted for the treatment their children are receiving.”
The new decor includes welcoming communal tables, a coffee bar, and art work done by the young residents themselves.
“I really believe home is the most important place on earth, and while we are hopeful those families will not have to stay there for long, I wanted to make the space feel as comfortable as possible for them while they are there,” she said. “When they go there to eat and to gather, I wanted them to feel like there’s still that sense of home away from home.”
