House to Home: Stencils and some patience make for inexpensive decorating impact

Another limitation often found in bedrooms is space. Moving to a new home, 14-year-old Cassie was invited to share in the beginning of the design process of her new room. She selected the color scheme — hot pink and lime green. She wanted the room to reflect her love of her animals — a horse, three cats, two birds and a turtle — so she provided the wall art and framed photos.
