Dream Home

Karina Ramirez was looking for simple and creative ways to decorate her kids’ rooms without breaking the bank and she came up with a number of unique items that really make the rooms pop.


In her son Adrian's room, she went with a dinosaur theme. She repurposed the frame above his bed by spray painting it and buying the letters of his name from Hobby Lobby. She also painted the stripes to give some texture to the room.
Adrian's room is filled with quotes from movies and books. Karina purchased the photos and kits from Etsy. She emphasized that most of her ideas come from Pinterest and Etsy and she shops at Hobby Lobby a lot.

Karina's saw an idea for the reading nook on Pinterest and went along with the way Adrian's room is designed. She had her aunt sew the curtains and added a cushion and pillows to make it cozy.


Alexia’s room is pink and girly. Karina used a damask stencil on the walls and on the frames.

She bought the purse holders at Michael’s and painted them herself.

In her daughter Alexia’s room, Karina made a bow holder from an idea she saw on Pinterest.
