The House for Hope Designer Show House, built by FHM client Carbine & Associates, has officially opened its doors for tour daily through March 12 from noon to 5 p.m. in the new boutique community Southern Preserve in Franklin, Tennessee. Forest Home Media is proud to be the PR company of record for the year’s top home event!
Home Lifestyle Specialist
For over two decades, I’ve had the pleasure of working with talented builders and designers with the goal of inspiring tour visitors and benefiting many worthy causes. The House for Hope takes all this up 1,000 notches with 15 Southeastern design tastemakers and Carbine dedicating the home sale proceeds to area children’s charities – estimated at $100,000.
House for Hope History
The entire project is a way to honor Carbine & Associates’ 30th anniversary of building. Instead of a big party, however, Carbine’s project will have a huge impact on our community and I can’t be more proud of this company. They have done so much over the years including building an Operation FINALLY HOME for a decorated war veteran in Kings’ Chapel community. Here’s a video we put together with company president, James Carbine.
Rock Star Design Tastemakers
Dana Tucker, FHM creative consultant who originally co-founded the company, helped assemble the team of design tastemakers from a four state area. Here is a clever video we put together highlighting the room designers. And, kudos to FHM New Media Manager Geinger Hill, a video and photography wizard!
We work with soooo many great media outlets and bloggers throughout the Southeast. Nationally, the collaboration with Domino was a result of regular PR trips to NYC to build these relationships. Check out the PR recap I did for my monthly column for The Southern C here, Modern Day PR: Leveraging Creativity To Ignite Buzz. It is all about this project.
Domino magazine at House for Hope
Domino’s Associate Social Media Manager Alyssa Clough came down to attend the media blogger preview and first stopped by WTVF’s Talk of the Town. She then hosted an incredible Facebook Live on Domino’s page previewing the home and meeting several of the talented designers in their rooms. Check out the tour below which begins with Kristen Carbine.
