Blueprints of Love

Building rooms of wonder and creativity for children with life-threatening conditions.

Blueprints of Love is a non-profit 501(c)3, tax-deductible organization, designing rooms of wonder and creativity for children with life threatening illnesses. We are a 100% volunteer-based, Boston-founded and run organization. Each of our projects has the sole purpose of revitalizing a child's spirit and imagination while providing all the essentials for a healing space of their own.

Blueprints of Love works closely with each family starting with the parents and sometimes their doctors addressing medical needs and important medical design necessities and then with the child to create their ultimate dream bedroom together.

Blueprints of Love founder Melinda Cabanilla worked as a director for a similar cause for the last two years, and this philanthropic work inspired this owner of Mistura Interior Design to start her own non-profit organization unique to Boston. Her love of children, passion for design and urge to give back landed her with a need to create something unique here in Boston.

With your support, our dedicated team will make dreams come true for these very special children.
