One Room Challenge Final Reveal: The Ice Cream Social Bedroom!

One Room Challenge Final Reveal: The Ice Cream Social Bedroom!

Once upon a time in a far away frozen land there lived a girl named Emmaline. Now Emmaline (or Emma for short) was no ordinary girl. Unlike most of her friends who constantly complained about the cold frozen landscape of Minnesota, Emma filled her head with magical dreams of frozen treats. Each time she dreamed, her heart warmed and she laughed at the thought of surrounding herself with mountains of mint chocolate chip ice cream, giant sprinkles and sugary flowers.

Now Emma was lucky because she had a fairy mother who loved her very much and agreed to dedicate 7 long weeks to making her dream come alive. Even though the fairy mother knew it would be lots of time and work she decided to create a wonderland of sweets and treats to bring even more joy and laughter to Emmaline.

Introducing Emma's Ice Cream Social Bedroom!

Come have a seat and enjoy the fantasy land of frozen treats. Mint chocolate chip walls, giant sprinkles and candy striped curtains remind us that we don't need to dread the cold but frozen times can be beautiful and sweet.

Plenty of stories to read when we run out of our own:

And a place for every friend to rest at night.

The fairy mother made sure to put a chair amongst the mint chocolate chip walls so that stories could easily be shared each night.

She also filled the walls with handmade art to remind little Emmaline that her imagination can always take her far.

So after 7 long weeks of bringing magic to life the fairy mother decided to take a long winter's nap and Emmaline forever jumped for joy and kept warm with thoughts of magical treats and visions of what her mind might think up next.
