Beauty guru Talia Castellano was a little girl with a lot of heart. Though her popular YouTube channel was initially focused on makeup and fashion, Talia began talking openly about her battle with neuroblastoma and leukemia.
It wasn’t long before kids and adults alike flocked to Talia’s videos to get their daily dose of inspiration.
In 2012, 13-year-old Talia had been sick in the hospital for 28 days straight. Her mother Desiree wanted to give her a surprise upon her homecoming. When interior designer Rebecca Robeson heard Talia’s story, she decided that the girl who spent so much time inspiring millions was due for a treat of her own.
With the help of Talia’s closest family and friends, Rebecca completely redesigned Talia’s room to create a special space just for her. “I can’t wait to see her face, and that’s what it’s all about,” Desiree said. “Making her happy.”
Rebecca wanted to create a bedroom as fun and mature as Talia. During the design process, reality struck’ Talia’s time on earth was uncertain. Rebecca wanted everything to perfect.
