At Lucky Pearl Interiors we believe in being part of the solution.
Our philosophy and mission center around empowering families through design. At LPI, we help struggling families to live well, assisting to remove one more obstacle from their path towards success. The work that we take on focuses on families who live in the neighborhoods in New York City that are most affected by income inequality, poverty, scarcity of resources and crime. Most recently these very same neighborhoods were significantly impacted by the effects of the Coronavirus. Sadly, the events of the past weeks have only added grief and frustration to an already tough period and shed light on a problem that was long ignored.
As a nonprofit that focuses on interior design, we do not presume to be the place where you can come to be well-informed about topics other than decorating beautiful spaces, living comfortably, and prioritizing your surroundings to function for your family. However, as the Founder and representative of LPI, and a woman of color, I feel very deeply for the discrimination that so many experience daily. I would like to do our part for this community and provide a place to access links to learn more about how you can affect change in your local neighborhood, learn how to discern which candidates best reflect your interest and even share links to some amazing designers, stylists, and artists in the industry from more diverse backgrounds.
As a community, we will be required to work hard to continue to affect change daily, but I hope that by utilizing our voice and supporting one another we can start to make a difference. We hope our little corner of the internet continues to inspire you and continues to be a place of respite from what can sometimes be a chaotic reality.
With hope, Mildred
