who we are

We are a non-profit organization in Georgia on a mission to turn empty houses into professionally designed and fully furnished homes where residents emerging from homelessness can plant roots and thrive. Our ultimate goal is to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for those in need, and to share the love of Christ with them.

Meet Kristina McCalla

FOUNDING ROOTED INTERIORS

From Kristina's earliest memories, she felt a deep connection to the art of interior design. It was more than just a talent; it was a God-given gift, a calling that urged her to use this skill for a purpose greater than herself. As Kristina immersed herself in the world of design, from schooling to running her own business, the conviction grew that this gift was bestowed upon her for a reason—an opportunity to impact lives in a meaningful way. 

The turning point in Kristina's journey occurred after a transformative experience: her baptism. It was during this spiritual awakening that she felt a powerful vision emerge, a mission from God to utilize her talents to make a positive impact on those emerging from homelessness. The baptism became a catalyst for a new chapter, where the vision to create Rooted Interiors was born.

This journey is not just about creating aesthetically pleasing interiors; it's about using the language of design to uplift and restore. Rooted in faith and love, each project is a testament to the belief that everyone, regardless of their circumstances, deserves a place that reflects their humanity and worth.

Together we all can create environments that are not only visually captivating but also spiritually enriching, rooted in the belief that our surroundings have the power to inspire, uplift and heal.
