Sponsors and Volunteers Sign the Fall 2018 St. Jude Dream Home in Denver

On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, sponsors and volunteers finally got to enter the Fall 2018 St. Jude Dream Home in Denver to sign the garage wall in preparation for the giveaway.

The Dream Home, built by Oakwood Homes and sponsored by Shaw Floors, Trane, Brizo, Bosch, and other building crews and organizations, is still in the last phases of construction, but will soon be fully furnished by Furniture Row and Denver Mattress before the open house tours begin on September 15.

The house, located in the Green Valley Ranch neighborhood of the Mile High City, is estimated to be 5,900 square feet and valued at $775,000. It has five spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a gorgeous back patio, and so much more.

All the money raised by the home giveaway will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital dedicated to fighting childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Those who purchase tickets or attend the open house are eligible to win the home as well as a $10,000 furniture shopping spree at Furniture Row, $2,500 VISA gift card, 2019 Lincoln MKC, and other amazing prizes.

Julie Hess, the Development Specialist for St. Jude, spoke to the team of volunteers and sponsors at the event alongside other guest speakers who helped make the project a reality.

“I just wanted to thank you guys for all the hard work you put into this beautiful home and into St. Jude. Because of you guys, no family or child will ever receive a bill for treatment, housing, travel, or food. Because of you guys, we have raised the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80% since the doors opened. And then because of you guys, the Denver Dream Home Giveaway has raised 8.6 million dollars. We are very, very lucky to have you,” Hess said.

After the speeches, invitees at the event got a chance to leave their permanent mark on the home they built by signing a wall in the garage with a message to the winner(s) of the house in Green Valley Ranch.

Although the construction team is almost done, the St. Jude Dream Home still has a lot of work left until open house tours start. Barb Chandler, one of the signees and Interior Designer for Furniture Row, will be designing the Fall 2018 St. Jude Dream Home using products from Furniture Row and Denver Mattress. She said she has a lot of ideas in store, but you’ll have to visit the dream home to see how it turns out.

“It’s going to be a bit modern with a touch of glam. The house will feature whites and blues—some grays. More metals. Think Hollywood.”

The project is entering its final design stages, but Chandler emphasizes they still need a lot of helping hands to move furniture, decorate, etc.

“Whenever we do a home like this, it’s not just us [Furniture Row employees] who help. It’s everyone—the neighbors, volunteers in our community, the builder, their suppliers, and so many others who donate their time. It takes a lot of people to make this happen,” Chandler said.

“It’s so heartwarming to be a part of St. Jude because of what they do. We get to change lives. It’s definitely near and dear to all of us.”

Click here to purchase tickets to enter the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. Each ticket is $100. The open house tours will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday from September 15 – October 21, 2018. Tickets must be purchased by October 19 to be eligible to win. The drawing will be on October 25 to announce the winner.

The Fall 2018 St. Jude Dream Home is located in The Enclave at Green Valley Ranch neighborhood at 4950 Liverpool St., Denver, CO 80249.

Step Inside the 2017 Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home

We all know and love the amazing work that St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for childhood cancer, especially when they raise money with the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. This year, they are giving away their biggest house yet! Located in a gated community called The Gallery in Reunion in Commerce City, Colorado, this 3400 square feet, four bedroom, two and a half bath mansion (part of the Overlook collection, named Boulderado) donated by Oakwood Homes is valued at $750,000, and it’s easy to see why once you step inside. The Front Door visited this beauty and spoke to Barb Chandler, the interior designer that decorated the home with furnishings and accents that were provided by Furniture Row. Below, see the photos of each spectacular room in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home!


As you approach the home, the front porch brings southern charm mixed with contemporary design. Barb Chandler partnered the Brookstone Patio Set with the Riviera Links Rug in a trendy mustard color, and Morrocan Accent Pillows. The shrubbery, candles, and mini pumpkins create a warm and welcoming environment for this outdoor space.


The entryway of every home is the first thing that guests see when they come to visit, and this foyer doesn’t disappoint. The Mahogany 4 Drawer Accent Table partners with woven baskets in washed gray, while a mirror opens up the space, and interesting home accents such as a metallic pumpkin, rectangular vase, and an Edison-style Bell Jar Lamp give this area visual interest.


The first room on the right is the home office. This country-inspired space showcases cottage chic furniture including the Hancock Park Collection (desk, credenza with hutch, desk chair, and file cabinet with hutch), and a 1-Drawer Accent Table. We love the pop of cheerful color with the customized yellow Eliza Chairs, and the gray Antiquity Rug brings weathered elegance to the work area. Faceted Candleholders, farmhouse trays from Magnolia Home, and the Brody Lamp make this room the ideal spot to get work done.

One of the best parts of the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home is the open layout. As you walk into the house, the great room feels cohesive, maintaining a consistent theme.

“The look and feel of this home is very modern farmhouse,” says Barb Chandler.

There is a lot of natural sunlight, and we love the liveable mood to the main floor. Furniture Row really made this home feel like home.


SHOP THE LOOK: Interlude Dining Table, Upholstered Parson Chairs, Host Chairs, Marbella Rug, Various Plants

The dining space separates the great room and the kitchen, and the fashionable furnishings are casual yet sophisticated.

“This space is great because it has multiple functions,” Chandler says. “Most families don’t need a formal dining room, but this room can be dressed up or dressed down. I can imagine kids doing homework, parents having guests over for refreshments, or a holiday dinner party happening on this table.”

kitchenThe kitchen is large, bright, and contemporary with gray cabinets, white marble countertops, a large center island, and stainless steel appliances. Two large windows bring a lot of natural light into the space, making it the ideal place for family and friends to gather.


The backyard backs up to a greenbelt, giving the home some privacy that is rarely seen in newly constructed homes. The Valencia Patio Set is perfect for this outdoor space, and we love that the area is covered.


SHOP THE LOOK: Frisco Leather Stonewash Sofas, Aspen Accent Chair, Stockbridge Occasional Tables, Venice Shag Rug in Ivory, Darrin Wood Floor Lamp, Sedona China Cabinets, Julie White Wash Lamps, Seneca Throw Pillows, Velvet Throw Pillows

As you can see, Oakwood Homes utilized the entire space in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home. An upstairs loft space complete with wet bar (photographed above), and a reading nook (photographed below) give the whole family room to entertain, relax, and enjoy beautiful Denver.


“This is one of my favorite chairs that we carry,” Chandler tells the Front Door. It tilts, swivels, and the fabric is such a versatile color and trendy pattern.”


The master bedroom epitomizes whimsical romance. Carrying the washed wood tones from downstairs, the Wethersfield Bedroom Set sets a relaxing tone. Hints of aqua blue are seen throughout with the Napa Suzani Rug, wall art, pillows, vases, and other accents. Texture is a huge design element with tufted upholstery such as the Slipper Accent Chair, furry linens, the brushed metal of the Chatham Lamps, and the super-soft St. Germain Chaise Lounge.


The guest bedroom brings a rustic flair to the home with masculine accents inspired by nature and hints of industrial style with the Watson Round Lamp and metal Bryant Park Bed. The color palette is clean with the Bonn Dresser Set in washed white, the Bindi Rug in pewter gray, and blues mixed with neutral linens and upholstered furnishings. Two Grant Cube Ottomans with nailhead trim create an instant window seat, perfect for when friends and family come to stay the night and need a place to set suitcases or to wind down before bed.


This adorable little girl bedroom is one of our favorite rooms in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home. Pretty in pink, this space features a Sparkle Shag Rose Quartz Rug, the Madison Bedroom Collection, the Soren Glass Owl Lamp, and the Cecilia Table Lamp. Barb combined gold highlights, playful accents, and a large feminine hanging mural on one wall to make this space truly shine.


The final bedroom is fit for any little boy looking for adventure. The trendy Stoney Creek Bedroom Set is versatile for any style of decor, and the Luke Dark Gray Antique Lamp lights up to shine on all of a child’s favorite accessories. The Antelope Canyon Framed Print beside the beds and the Mountain Ranger Wall Art near the desk are the final touches to this room. The cool part about this space, as well as the little girl’s room, is that they both open to the third outdoor space, an upstairs balcony.


The final space in the home is the upstairs balcony, which is accessed from two of the bedrooms. The Castilla Patio Set provides space to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. The Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home is so impressive, that you really need to see it in person to get the full experience.

The open house tours began on October 21st, 2017 and will go through December 3rd on Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from noon – 5 pm. (Please note, the tours won’t be held Thanksgiving weekend.) The address is:

Step Inside the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home in Colorado Springs


The 2017 Colorado Springs St. Jude Dream Home and its furnished interior design, compliments of Furniture Row and Denver Mattress, are finally complete! Located just northeast of downtown Colorado Springs in nearby Falcon, Colorado, this dream home is nestled in the Banning Lewis Ranch Homes subdivision off a road with a spectacular mountain backdrop of the Rockies including Pikes Peak. This beautiful St. Jude home built by Covington Homes is 3,500 square feet full of open-spaced bliss with four bedrooms and three baths.

With a spacious modern-inspired kitchen with a gray wash floor and tile backsplash, oversized windows, a large basement area, and an open floor plan concept that includes a large living and dining room area, this year’s St. Jude Dream Home has room for all your furniture, guests, and then some! This year marks the ten-year anniversary of Furniture Row giving back to St. Jude’s, so enter a chance to win this luxurious brand new home and support an important cause.

Barbara Chandler, a Buyer and Designer at Furniture Row, has made sure the St. Jude Dream Home reflects the most popular of design trends to get everyone excited about the opening, but she says the real joy of decorating the home is knowing she gets to help families in need.

“Furniture Row as a company has family values and does a lot of humanitarian projects, which is very near and dear to what Furniture Row is about. Our company feels like its good to give back. The cost of one home that we raffle off doesn’t even cover the cost of one day of hospital operation. The hospital is run solely on donations and homes are being built all over the country, but they still need all the support they can get,” she said.

So make sure you buy your tickets now, and have the chance to win the home or other awesome prices for the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. Tours of the house will run from May 6th to June 11th on Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. The winner will be announced on June 16th, 2017.

UPDATE: The last chance to see the house, reserve your tickets, and enter to win the $10,000 Furniture Row shopping spree before the giveaway is during extended open house dates on June 13-15th from 9 am to 7 pm.

When you first enter the St. Jude Dream Home, the hallway opens instantly to reveal a spacious home office with an adjacent bathroom. Large oversized oval windows allow light to fill the room, while convenient storage pieces such as an oversized cabinet with shelves and sliding doors are perfect for all your books, supplies, and more. Charming Magnolia Home furniture and accessories add rustic farmhouse appeal, and the tree decals on the walls and potted plants in vases and wicker baskets provide the perfect workspace oasis so that you can bring nature indoors.

Living Room


Nothing adds cheer and light to a room like a bright pop of sunny yellow, and that’s what Chandler had in mind when designing the living room of the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home. In fact, she liked it so much she added pale yellow to almost all the rooms.

“I chose yellow because spring has sprung, and I feel like pops of yellow are coming out of winter. Yellow is fresh and fun and that’s why I chose it. I wanted to do yellows and grays and gray is such an on-trend color right now, and I could’ve done all grays but that would be a bit boring, so I felt like the yellow would pop it up a bit,” Chandler said.

To tone down the yellow in the accent pillows and ottoman, Chandler also added neutrals like black and gray that also help modernize the farmhouse look. The stylish black wingback accent chair with nailhead trim is a striking contrast to this light, airy, laidback living room setting and gives the space the dramatic, sleek touch its looking for.

Kitchen and Dining Room


The farmhouse fresh look of Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home collection is everywhere in the kitchen and dining room, but Chandler also says the space is also modern. A vintage metal linen cabinet holds dainty dishware and a cream farmhouse table gives the room provincial refinement, while the kitchen boasts sleek black cabinets, white marble countertops, and retro metal barstools.

Master Bedroom


The master bedroom is Chandler’s favorite room in the house, and it’s no surprise!

“I do like the master bedroom because of the window treatments and the amazing bed that’s in there. It’s just really soft and it looks like that’s where you go to relax and unwind at the end of the day. It’s so elegant,” she said.

Soft touches of sunshine yellow in the fabric help add color to the sophisticated bedroom with a cream tufted and upholstered sleigh bed, making the room feel completely elegant.

Basement Living Room


An oversized basement is always a bonus, and there’s just enough room in the St. Jude Dream Home for another living area! Complete with a rustic wooden entertainment wall and a plush brown Italian leather sofa group, the downstairs den is perfect for move nights and casually unwinding.

Basement Recreation Area


Keep your kids’ clutter at bay and give them a space to let their imaginations soar away from the dining table upstairs with their very own workspace area that’s perfect for arts, crafts, and more with a downstairs recreation area! Furniture with lots of drawers such as the Magnolia Home Bin Chest has room for everything you need to stay organized and the industrial Aldo Metal Chairs provide studious comfort you need for playtime and socializing.

Boy’s Bedroom


Two bedrooms occupy the basement, and this large room to the left is just right for a little boy. Rustic wooden bedroom furniture will gorgeously withstand the test of time as your little one grows older and he will love the storage features perfect for games and toys.

Girl’s Bedroom


Feminine and sweet, this downstairs bedroom to the right is pretty enough for a princess. A frilly white bedspread on a sweet white poster bed with a matching vanity looks charming and sophisticated and your little girl will feel like a grown-up with her very own space. Accents in light pink shades are the perfect girly touch, and even mom will want to sink her toes in the pink plush rug!

Outdoor Patio


Walk into an outdoor haven with a versatile and comfortable outdoor patio group that will allow you relax with family and friends when the weather’s nice. For an exotic touch, add Moroccan or tribal-inspired patterned pillows and a bright rug for some summer color. Colorado Springs gets a lot of sunshine, and the patio out back from the dining area is perfect for sipping cocktails, barbecuing, or just kicking up your feet.

Step Inside the 2016 Denver St. Jude Home

The 2016 Denver St. Jude Dream Home and its furnished interior design, complements of Furniture Row and Denver Mattress is finally being debuted, and the Front Door has all of the photos for our viewers to preview! Nestled in the quaint Tollgate Crossing subdivision, this home is located in Aurora, named the All-American City from the National Civic League. Close to shopping, recreation, and in one of the best school districts of Colorado, this St. Jude dream house is centrally located near roads that allow residents to quickly commute to the Denver Tech Center, Downtown Denver, and Denver International Airport.

Oakwood Homes was the builder on this project (valued at $550,000), donating time and materials to help the St. Jude Charity Dream Home Giveaway. With four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and an estimated 3,400 square feet, this dream home has a garden-level basement, a three car garage, and countless other luxurious features, and with the purchase of an $100 raffle ticket, it all could be yours!


Enjoy the following photos of the St. Jude Dream Home and get furniture and home decor ideas for your own living spaces.

Entry Way


The house has great curb appeal and is in a stunning neighborhood. Right when you walk in, you notice the beautiful gray-washed wood floors that spread throughout the entire first story. With a feel of relaxed elegance, the design aesthetic starts right at the front door. “During the construction phase it was clear to me that the décor needed to be somewhat minimal with a touch of elegance,” explains Barb Chandler of Furniture Row who furnished the entire house.


Kitchen/Dining Room


The white kitchen is open and large, featuring granite countertops and an oversized island. “Oakwood is known for their fabulous kitchens,” Barb tells us. “That island can comfortably seat eight! It’s always so nice to have an kitchen where the whole family can gather while meals are being prepped.”

Since the St. Jude Dream Home has such an open layout, the dining “room” is strategically situated between the kitchen and the living room. A casual elegance exudes from this living space, and the large chalkboards are a nice touch. The mix of the reclaimed wood of the sideboard with the darker finish of the dining table gives this room a trendy vibe of relaxed sophistication.


Living Room


The gray washed floors with the Sherwin Williams Repose Gray painted walls set the tone for an ethereal, soft ambiance, and the burlap curtains ad just a touch of rustic charm. The stone and tile fireplace makes a designer statement while the large windows let in tons of light. With studded leather sofas, refined occasional tables, and fashionable home accents scatted throughout, this room is classic and timeless.

Master Bedroom


Complete with light and bright windows, a sitting area, a wet bar with a wine refrigerator, a huge walk-in shower, and an amazing closet, the master bedroom of the St. Jude Dream Home is truly its own little retreat. In fact, it’s so great that it is Barb’s favorite room in the house. “The sitting area is super cozy and the bathroom is very spacious,” she says. “However, it might be the giant closet that I’m drawn to!”

Laundry Room


Main Floor Guest Bedroom


This bedroom is very feminine and classy. With a four poster bed, a unique gilded cabinet, velvet accent chairs, and decorative lace lamps, this space reads sophisticated French country. Currently decorated as a bedroom, this room would also work well as a home office or den.



Upstairs Guest Bedroom


If shabby chic country is your favorite decor style, this room is for you. With a headboard inspired by wood shutters, multiple pattern bedding in soft neutral shades, and touches of wicker throughout, this room has its own on-suite bathroom and a large, walk-in closet.



This open living space has a very Americana homespun feel to it. With tradition furnishings, rope and wooden accents, and a neutral color scheme, this is a great little bonus room in the St. Jude Dream Home.

Basement Bedroom


Decorated as a child/teen room, this bedroom is on the garden level, bringing ample light into the space and making it feel like a main-level area. Boyish and fun accessories donne the walls and surfaces, nodding to all things boys love best: planes, cars, sports, and bicycles. A large closet walk-in closet offers plenty of storage space, and the nightstands have touch lighting, which makes it easy to see when your offspring wakes up in the middle of the night.

Basement Fun Room


This living space is kid-friendly and fun. With a large dining table to be used as a workspace, organizational craft holders on the wall, a small workout corner, and plenty of spots to sit around and play games with the family, this room is eclectic and comfortable.

Luckily, we got to take a peek at the heavenly home and get the inside scoop on the selected pieces from Barbara Chandler, Buyer and Designer at Furniture Row.

But before we get started, make sure you buy your tickets now and have your chance to win the home or other awesome prizes for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway 2016.

Check out the photos below for a look at the beautifully designed 2016 Dream Home, that, *fingers crossed*, might get to be yours!

St. Jude Dream Home Exterior

Front Exterior

The exterior is very inviting with its elegant and creative decor. Featuring lanterns full of crisp, white candles, potted accents, and plush ottoman seating, the ambiance around the front door is infused with cheerful hints of spring. The architectural, craftsman-inspired design in a neutral palette makes this dream house a place that anyone can call home!

St. Jude Dream Home Office/Entry


Upon entry, the hallway is casually designed with a mixture of reclaimed and rustic furnishings to put together a balanced look of old and new. This space features many blue, mint, and gray colored tones that carry throughout the entire house, as well as eclectic metallic accent pieces and soft fabrics.

One of Barbara’s favorite pieces, the Pagoda Chest, can be found right at the entrance underneath the airy and elegant Harper Glass Table Lamp, creating an open and inviting ambiance.

“I actually have that in my house,” Barbara says admiring the classic, silhouetted chest.

Adjacent to the walkway, the Santa Cruz Console openly stores plants and also brings natural warmth to the space. The recycled fir wood of this piece adds to the reclaimed and rustic vibe of the home and is well accented by the Mercury Glass Buffet Lamp, which incorporates a shiny, contemporary twist. These pieces are complemented by the eclectic and vintage-inspired Ogee Rug.

To the left of the entrance, the office also boasts rustic styling with the Brownstone Desk and Brownstone File Cabinet, more favorites of Barbara’s. These pieces are beautifully made of reclaimed pinewood combined with a cool metal base for a one-of-a-kind, industrial-vintage feel.

Clean-cut and contemporary pieces are scattered throughout the room as well. The Rocket Accent Chair comfortably sits beside the desk, a nice addition to the rustic Marie Metal Chair. The Rochester Table Lamp brings a polished metallic accent to the mix, while the Hartford Wire Mesh Cabinet is both functional and fashionable.


Living Room

Continuing through the open floor plan, the entrance hall leads to the back of the house, where you can find the living room. In this space, there are eclectic pieces that Barbara says are really unique to the open space and the large windows that bring in a lot of natural light. Two Modena Sofas are beautifully upholstered in rich, brown leather for a rustic feel and are situated around the exotic Montana Coffee Table, which is easily the most interesting piece in the house. With a slender glass plate atop a large tree root as base, Barbara says she was inspired by the nature of Colorado when selecting this hearth of the home. Being able to choose items such as the Montana, is what Barbara believes makes the selection at Furniture Row so great and so fun to decorate with.

“Our buyers are fantastic. They’re really good at what they do. The reclaimed and one-of-a-kind pieces are great. Especially for a designer,” Barbara said.

As for how she selects which items to display, Barbara opts to focus on the products that tell the story of Furniture Row to get people excited.

“I try to do what’s relevant at the moment and what really showcases Furniture Row. Most of the time people come to our store, and might say, ‘I had no idea you had that!’”

As far as creativity goes, Barbara says the design for the 2016 St. Jude’s Home in Colorado Springs spurred from a number of things and undoubtedly resulted in a design that is completely original, a concept that can be found in many products at Furniture Row.

“I find inspiration everywhere. Everything is inspiring,” Barbara said.

In the living room, you can also find the Cornet Accent Chair, Urban Loft End Table, and the Rockport Table Lamp for a look that is original and sophisticatedly eye-catching.


Kitchen/Dining Room

Next to the living room, the kitchen is versatile with stainless appliances and quartz countertops. The gray-toned rectangular tile kitchen walls add clean, contemporary style and dark cabinets situate around a white and beige island for a spacious feeling. For more clean and trendy design, the Segovia Table Lamp adds a simple white accent in addition to three sleek white Calydon Barstools that complement the rustic Foundry End Table, a unique combination of embellished metal and wood.

In the dining room beside the kitchen, the sleek, chocolate Urban Loft Dining Table joins six Shimmer Parson Side Chairs for a romantic, velvety dining experience that is perfect for casual or elegant occasions.

The uniquely patterned Ibiza Table Lamp is a functional piece of pottery that completes the rustic and eclectic atmosphere. For sophisticated nighttime occasions, the Ridding Wine Rack is a nice touch for displaying your favorite drinks.

The dining room is Barbara’s favorite room in the house, although she said that it was really hard to decide. Her favorite artifact that adorns the walls for even more exquisite and elegant touch are the Sapa runners, made by the Hmong people of rural Vietnam, that are hand-woven from locally harvested hemp and dyed with indigo.

“I love the mix of metal and reclaimed wood with a more contemporary style dining table. I love the blue lamps, and of course the runners. Those are very special to me from just being there and meeting the women that make them and the history that goes behind them. I feel like it’s an honor to have these in Colorado!” she said.


Loft/Upstairs Laundry Room

Upstairs, the casual comfort carries to the loft, which features the Arabesque Coffee Table, the navy blue Bellamy Sofa, and the sleek Perry Park Accent Chair for a relaxed atmosphere that is soft to the touch. The Del Norte Cabinet wonderfully brings traditional beauty to the mix with antique glass mirror inserts and a stone top above a paned chest and also prominently displays the unique Buchanan Lamp and fun white and turquoise Tuka Vases. In the corner of the loft, the Branch Forest End Table also boasts whimsical and enchanted charm that you are bound to notice.

In the adjacent laundry room, the same Brownstone File Cabinet (which matches the desk from the downstairs office) provides convenience upstairs for your laundry essentials. The Segovia Table Lamp brings crisp and clean light.



Master Bedroom

No house is complete without a beautiful master bedroom! The gray Lauren King Upholstered Bed combines clean lines with lovely style for a look that is soft and elegant. This gorgeous charcoal tufted bed spotlights the many shades of blue and cream throughout the room.

Beside the bed, the Steel Frame Bubble Buffet incorporates reclaimed rustic style once again with its chic and decorative woodcarving drawers combined with metal. The luminescent Rhodes Mercury Table Lamp is a gorgeous light fixture that is an eye-catching addition for added coziness.

In a reading corner, the unique Branch Forest Nesting Tables sit next to the lovely Lim Accent Chair for a cool and collective relaxation spot.

In the closet, the Raja Bench is perfect for more storage or seating, and enhances the eclectic use of sculpted wood with its exquisite scalloped detailing.


Nursery and Girl’s Room

Furniture Row also has a unique crib collection, and the nursery in the far left corner exhibits beautifully-made items for your baby. The Jameson 3-in-1 Crib includes toddler bed rails that will grow alongside your child and also features added comfort and support with the Madison Crib Mattress.

The blue and gray palette of the nursery features a pop of bright peach with throw pillows and art that is a bright accent against the softness of the cream colored SM Comfort Accent Chair and the rustic washed Lisbon Armoire. More Branch Forest Tables make this a cozy spot similar to the reading corner of the master bedroom, and the fun yet simple designs of both the Harper Glass Table Lamp and the Riley Beige Table Lamp create added sophistication that is hard to beat.

In the girl’s room down the hall from the nursery, the white Bristol Valley bedroom set is complete with a full captain’s bed, a nightstand, a dresser, and a mirror for a polished princess look with more bold pops of peaches and pinks in addition to blues and grays. Another set of Riley Beige Table Lamps on the nightstands bring more unique style to this sophisticated kid’s room and sets a simple contrast to the bright colors and sparkly accents.


Boys’ Bedrooms

In the basement, there is plenty of childhood fun with two bedrooms for boys. In one room, a Frankfort Navy Daybed with a trundle is the perfect place for a little one to relax and is a sleek complement to the Urban Quarters Nightstand and the Urban Quarters Bench found in the hallway. Another Rochester Table Lamp and Marie Metal Chair are also great metallic accents alongside the navy blue boy’s theme.

In the second boy’s bedroom, the distressed and reclaimed Jaipur Bedroom set features a storage bed, nightstand, mirror, and media chest. The Jaipur Bedroom is right on trend-with its reoccurring use of antiqued mahogany. Both the Edison Table Lamp and the La Cantera Table Lamp add an eccentric twist that accompanies the exoticness of the Jaipur set. For a finishing touch, the bold colored patterning on the upholstery of the Prism Accent Chair creates the fun and wild style kids love.


Basement Fun Room

The last room in the house is easily the most livable room to hang out in whether you’re a kid or an adult! The wide-open space of the basement fun room is perfect for social gatherings and cool hangouts, so Barbara made sure the design was both casual and comfortable.

The giant room utilizes the space for two different purposes—to dine or to simply relax. The Foundry 2 Pc. Home Theater Wall is the primary focus of attention during movie night, and the Siesta Sectional is the perfect place to get cozy. Two large Reese Iron Round Tables atop a funky Oracle Ariel Rug are wonderfully made to hold a board game or a cup of coffee as you chat with your friends or family, and the basement fun room holds tons of surface space with the addition of the beautiful Foundry End Table that holds the Cooper Table Lamp and the Chinese Alter Table.

Bold and fun patterned, the Dot & Dash Ceramic Table and the Oxford Oceanside Chairs are the perfect places to perch, and a collection of Marie Metal Chairs are versatile enough for adults to sit in for drinking and kids to sit in for coloring.

In the dining area, the Rustamod collection features a buffet, a large and small hutch, a 54” dining table, a bench, a buffet, and an adjustable barstool, which are beautiful dark wooden pieces that accent the rustic Quarry Metal Cabinet.


Outdoor Patio

 To complete the casualness of the 2016 St. Jude’s Colorado Spring Dream Home, the Brookstone outdoor set adds a comfortable and collected air to the breezy outdoor patio. Featuring a chair, sofa, love seat, coffee table, and end table, the Brookstone creates the home of your dreams with resin woven wicker and versatile contemporary cream cushions. Relax outside in the beautiful mountain air of Colorado Springs, and enjoy the bliss of this wonderful home for a cause.

St. Jude Dream Home: Master Bedroom

The 2014 St. Jude Dream Home features interior designs we can’t get enough of! We’re excited to highlight the master bedroom, and share some design tips for recreating a similar master retreat in your own home. From the color of the walls and the cohesive palette, to the rich textures and statement prints, this bedroom really brings the best of Colorado indoors–and reflects the overall inspiration of the home’s design.


Inspired by the beauty of Colorado’s terrain, the room brings the outdoors in, with touches of designer polish throughout. Rich browns and earthy hues are given a chic lift with metallic, porcelain, and bursts of lime green. To add texture and depth, swirling prints combine with chevron and modified quatrefoil for a layered look we love.

This mater bedroom really proves that neutrals don’t have to be boring: the brown and green space is both a restful retreat, and a feast for the eyes. Tasteful accents of bright green give life to the space, while muted brown, beige, and black touches bring a peaceful vibe, and design continuity.


To recreate a similar look in your home, first decide on your color palette. Build out from there, selecting pieces that complement one another, but enhance the texture and richness of your space. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, and to play with accents. Most importantly, create a space that will make you happy! To bring some of this Colorado dream master bedroom home, check out the products below that are available online, and in-store at Furniture Row.

St. Jude Dream Home: The Living Room

The interior design of the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home in Colorado Springs is inspired by the beauty of its home state. From earthy hues and rich natural textures, to warm hardwoods and stone elements, the home really does bring the best of Colorado indoors.

We are excited to feature specific spaces of the Dream Home with you here on the Front Door, and to start off, we’re welcoming you into the living room. Check out the gallery below for a close up of the space, and read on for design details!


What we love about this living room is the layered, multi-dimensional feel of the design.  The color palette is centered around green, and is accented with neutrals and brown that combine to give the room depth.

The space is anchored by a green, quatrefoil-inspired area rug, and is arranged to highlight the fireplace as the focal point. The patterns used in the space–from the accent chairs and rug, to the throw pillows and blanket–are cohesive and complementary: They continue the Colorado colors theme, and bring movement to this sumptuous space.

The plush fabric sofa, and the top-grain leather accent chairs bring this a mixed-material style that is both eclectic & elegant. Accessories like the metal urns and ceramic lamps introduce new texture, and add a polished feel, and tie the room together.

This room is inviting and luxurious, while being casual and cozy–and we love it! To recreate this dream living room in your home, be sure to check out the available products, listed here.

The shown coffee table, and reclaimed chest are available in-store through the Lost & Found collection.
