Most girls grow up loving the color pink, and Real Living’s winning letter sender was no different. She chose the color for her bedroom back when she was in grade school. The problem?

“I’m just starting out,” says the account executive. “I don’t have the budget [to change the look].” She longed to have a room where she could de-stress after work, a place that could help her relax. To help her achieve this, Real Living asked our makeover designer Vivian Gacad to work her magic.
