A surprise bedroom makeover..

DTLL is always about family and we were so proud to hear about a host of out stores had done the most wonderful bedroom make over for a very deserving young lady..

Our lovely Nicole said 'A few months ago we were introduced to the story of a brave little twelve year old girl from Melbourne who after a routine medical check up was rushed to hospital to undergo a heroic sixteen hour surgery to remove one of the two brain tumors found in her head.

Since that time Ashlee has had to relearn the basics and life for the family has been a busy schedule of Doctor's appointments and rehab. But, you won't hear Ashlee's beautiful Mum Coral or her little sister Hayli complain. They are such a positive and inspiring group of ladies and we wanted to help out the only way we know how... Through interior design.

After months of scheming and planning we pulled off the ultimate surprise bedroom makeover with the help of some generous Aussie businesses'

  1. This is just so beautiful. I wish Ashlee all the love and strength in the world. I have a similar story. At 16 I was found to have a brain stem tumour and rushed to hospital that day. The story repeated itself when I was 22. An epic 17.5 hr surgery from the most remarkable surgeons saved my life. I'm now 36, with vibrant, noisy beautiful four year old twin boys, and every single day I count my blessings. I am sure Ashlee will have a beautiful life x

    1. Oh wow, what a fabulous happy ending, thanks for sharing :)
