TPN was commissioned by the Young Professionals of Color - Greater Harrisburg to design the great room of their historic property, Hurston Manor, named for Zora Neale Hurston. The home is intended to serve as the organization's main hub. The client asked for a great room that was multi-functional; it needed to be used for meetings and transform to accommodate a variety of social gatherings and event options.


Our client requested an old-world Caribbean vibe filtered through a mid-century modern lense, and ultimately desired a space that felt like home and reflected the culture of their organization. 

What we did:


-Selected and hung custom wall mural


-Selected and custom-framed all art work and decor

-Designed and installed floating acrylic Hurston Manor sign

-Repainted existing fireplaces and gold-leafed insets

-Selected all furniture and outfitted sofas with casters for ease of mobility

-Selected and painted wall color: we wanted to bring color into the space but didn't want to diminish the height of the ceilings by painting the entire wall. 


Client's feedback:

"We all love the space, it feels very much like it was designed for us!"
