Tour the Coffey Family Home
We partnered up with Operation FINALLY HOME, JCPenney, Henley Homes, Inc. and interior designer Edwina Vidosh of Edwina Alexis to give a deserving veteran and his family the surprise of a lifetime. Here, meet the team, get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the project, and tour the Coffey family's updated—and upgraded—space.
The JCPenney Team
Enthusiastic JCPenney associates from the local Round Rock store take a group photo before unloading furniture and décor items for the install.
Southern Living Custom Builder Gary Henley of Henley Homes shares his connection with charity Operation FINALLY HOME (he sits on the board) with JCPenney associates before the install begins.
Unloading the Truck
JCPenney volunteers unload the neutral jute rug that will soften the living space and really tie the room together.
Assembling the Furniture
JCPenney volunteers cheerfully assemble furniture, including Beaumont dining room chairs, before bringing it into the home.
Coastal Oasis Living Room
Interior designer Edwina Vidosh of Edwina Alexis, Inc., a member of the Southern Living Designer Network, transforms the Coffey’s dark family room into a calming coastal oasis for U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Clifton “Ray” Coffey and his family.
Living Room Retreat
Vidosh paired a simple Elm end table with Fabric Possibilities Track Arm Sofa in Lindy Natural.
Living Room Seating
PTM Images Earthy Horizons canvas wall art brings warmth and a serene atmosphere to the space. A set of Kaye Chairs makes a comfortable spot for a conversation.
Living Room Built-Ins
The Coffey family asked specifically for organizational pieces, and this entertainment center custom-built by Cabinets Deluxe in Georgetown, Texas, gives them just that – plus, it’s designed to match the kitchen cabinets, which were also donated by Cabinets Deluxe.
A set of Waylan Backless Saddle Stools in beige provide additional seating in the kitchen.
The Breakfast Nook
The breakfast nook is outfitted with Beaumont dining chairs and colorful pops of turquoise and teal blue.
New colorful bowls bring a pop of color to the table, while white Quinto dinnerware ties it all together.
Edwina Vidosh of Edwina Alexis, Inc., a member of the Southern Living Designer Network, puts the finishing touches on the centerpiece before the family arrives and sees their home transformed for the first time.
The Comfort Room
The comfort room is a place where Ray can shut out the noise of the world and just relax. Because the ocean and coastal colors soothe him, Edwina carried that theme into the comfort room complete with a Sandy Swivel Rocker in Belshire Buckwheat.
A set of Mother of Pearl Lamps brings a dose of glamour to the entry.
A Delta Storage Bench brings order to the hallway outside the kids' rooms while the Harper Porthole Mirror reinforces the coastal theme.
