Impressing us left and right, Natalie Thompson from Deeply DistressedOpens in a new window is at it again with her stellar design skills. This time, however, she enlisted the aid of her daughter Endia, and turned her latest project into a bonding moment. The mother/daughter team sought out colors, chose stylish furniture, and not only designed a chic, functional new space, but they created great memories as well.
Teaming up with Ashley HomeStore, they redesigned Endia’s room and added their own personal twist.
One thing’s for sure from this redesign—Prince Olive the cat certainly loves lounging on the new bedspread!
Endia’s old room was filled with muted pastels, tinged with a hint of farmhouse and metallic, but it’s since been transformed into a colorful bohemian paradise.
Inspiration for the Room
This wasn’t just another room makeover for Natalie—it was an opportunity to bond with her daughter and create long-lasting memories. But it came with its set of challenges, especially since they live in smaller quarters. This meant Natalie needed furniture for Endia that was durable, had lots of storage, slimmer builds and was versatile with other decor styles. This was especially important since Endia loves art, and needed plenty of room to store supplies, clothes, and other crafts for day-to-day activities.
Their journey started with Endia’s request, which was simple: she wanted colors and animals. At their local Ashley HomeStore, Endia fell in love with this colorful array of wall art and pillows.
Endia’s excitement over the colorful selection of pillows was the “a-ha” moment Natalie had been waiting for. Using this as her guide, she let the whimsy of fantastical colors and fringe lead the way to bring the room together.
A Stylish Headboard
This white canopy bed frameOpens in a new window is a stunning focal point in Endia’s room. Not only does the bed have ample space underneath to store supplies, but Natalie enjoys how the frame is “super in style,” making it easy to switch out colors and canopy decorations the next time Endia is hit with a bout of creativity. It’s just what the style doctor ordered. We’re in love with the vibrant colored fringe and hanging poms.
Natalie calls this a win-win, and we have to agree.
A Brightly-Colored Bedspread
Endia was instantly drawn to this colorful bedspreadOpens in a new window because of its rainbow squiggles. We’re obsessed with how Natalie paired it perfectly with eye-catching pillows for a pop of different patterns and textures. The dog and cat on each pillow are full of life, and just what Endia wanted—a fun burst of animals and color.
A Matching Dresser and Mirror
Letting the splendor of colors take center stage, this white dresser and mirrorOpens in a new window set is the ideal neutral room complement. A blank canvas along with the right height, its smooth-gliding drawers ensure there’s no slamming or sticking.
A Vibrant Area Rug
How cute and feminine is this rugOpens in a new window? Pink matches the medley of colors in Endia’s room for that ultra-refined, finishing touch. The fact that it’s 100% cotton means it’s also soft on the feet. Comfort and style combined; it’s a home run for the bedroom.
Whimsical Wall Art
Adding to the fun, animal wall artOpens in a new window brightens things up and accentuates the pillows and squiggly bedspread. It’s certainly something exciting to look at every day— dressed up walls that express and inspire Endia’s artistic side.
Repurposing Existing Furniture
“Having extra space on her desk and floor make for plenty of room for activities.”
As for the rest of the room, Natalie kept Endia’s existing night stand and re-purposed it by painting the drawer front a different color to match the room’s new color scheme.
A vanity, which doubles as a desk, sits by Endia’s bed so that she has plenty of space to do her homework and create art.
Finally, Natalie added a long, bench-style ottoman at the foot of the bed, so putting on shoes—as well as storing them underneath—is effortless. Tufting on the creamy cushion brings a pinch of fancy to the eclectic mix.
The Final Room Reveal
What a joy it was working with this fabulous mother/daughter duo to create a room that illustrates Endia’s artistic side. We hope she loves it as much as we do, and we hope that you have as much fun as Natalie and Endia did when you tackle your next redecorating project.
