Mommy + Me Girls Room Makeover With Natalie Thompson

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.

Marcus and Kristin’s Home Office and Outdoor Oasis Transformation

When YouTube’s favorite newlyweds, Marcus + KristinOpens in a new window, bought a home in need of a little TLC, who do you think they turned to? Why, Ashely HomeStore, of course! With a home office crying for some creative design and an outdoor patio begging for definition, they welcomed our help.

First up – Marcus’s guest house, AKA, his new office space.

Marcus is an aspiring actor, musician and filmmaker – you could say he is a triple threat. He loves his detached office, or, as he has referred to it, his man cave. Because he’s so involved with the arts, we wanted to give him a space with just the right furniture and accessories to help him express his creativity.

Marcus loves the modern simplicity of the Zardoni sofaOpens in a new windowfrom Ashley HomeStore, and we added Starmore bookcases with open shelving to show off all his camera gear and prized possessions. Another focal point of the room is the sleek and functional Lobink office desk. Once we all assembled the large items, we got busy working our design magic…and the results are amazing! On point accessories and wall decor really make the room pop.

We are beyond happy that we could help Marcus and Kristin design such a functional and comfortable office space.

With the home office complete, we turned our attention to the next project – transforming their patio.

Marcus and Kristin love the outdoors – though perhaps not as much as their dogs, Camper and Honey. How exciting to give all four of them an outdoor space where they can relax, entertain and play.

First up: clearing the deck to get a good idea of the space available. Then, we added the Facet Marquise rug and Hatchlands park benchesOpens in a new window. With that great foundation in place, all it took was a few colorful pillows and poufs to turn their patio into a true outdoor oasis.

We loved spending time with Marcus + Kristin, their energy is infectious and we couldn’t be happier to give them a space to enjoy and grow in. Check out their latest vlog for more behind the scenes look at the home officeOpens in a new window and outdoor transformation. (insert vlog)

In Their Words – Our Twilight Home

We just wanted to share our awesome experience while building our Twilight Home. Our sales associate, Pauline Hansen, was there for us every step of the way. From the initial contract signing to the final walk through and a million times in between she was always there to answer a question or to provide us with her expertise. Dominic Torres was our construction supervisor and also provided us with quality service. He is knowledgeable and also made himself available to answer any question we threw at him and there were many. Our home is everything we wanted and more. We could not be more happy with our decision to choose Twilight as our builder. They provide a quality product and are represented by quality people. We would choose Twilight again in a heartbeat.
Angie & Wes
