John Montgomery, GPP ’97
Designer, The Emmanuel College Room, The College Club of Boston
I am not a professional interior designer. But as a participant in The College Club of Boston’s Dream Room Makeover Challenge, for two weeks I certainly got to act like one.
As part of the major restoration at the club, I redesigned one of the rooms in honor of Emmanuel College. With a splash of paint, some new carpeting and photography of local Boston sites that highlight the city and Emmanuel’s place in its history, I tried to design the room in a way I hope the College would be proud of. It was a wonderful opportunity to pay homage to a place that has meant so much to me.
As an adult learner, Emmanuel helped me move into a whole new endeavor in my life. I had such a positive experience there. I hope the room dedicated to Emmanuel continues to pay tribute to the College’s great legacy.
