Blissful Bedrooms

Ninti’s Bedroom Makeover

During the weekend of 6/24-6/27/22, a Blissful Bedroom was manifested for Ninti. Thank you, Team Ninti, and everyone who donated to this effort! Your heart prints are all over her room, and that loving energy will no doubt fill Ninti’s life for a long time to come!


Check out the photo album below for a selection of photos from Ninti’s makeover weekend – from the prep to the party to the reveal!

Check out Ninti’s pre-makeover photo shoot. Isn’t she lovely! You should have seen Ninti’s face when she saw a selection of these photos displayed big and bold on her bedroom walls.

Ninti is a beautiful and radiant 21-year-old young woman with cerebral palsy. It’s impossible not to be captivated by her charm, as she exudes such a sweet joy and her giggles are completely contagious. Ninti graduated last year from a public special education school in the Bronx. She uses a wheelchair for mobility in the community, but at home, Ninti walks about independently, sometimes enlisting the walls and furniture for support. She lives with her parents and is the youngest of eight children, but the only one who remains in the nest. Ninti’s parents are extraordinarily warmhearted and vibrant human beings, just like their daughter, and there is no mistaking how much they are enchanted with and enjoy Ninti’s presence.

Ninti has many creative interests. She can happily spend hours alone in her bedroom making art, whether it’s painting and coloring, or cutting out shapes and images from magazines and creating collages. Another passion of Ninti’s is styling hair. None of her dolls have escaped her scissors and conditioning products. In fact, mom has to hide her collection of dolls from Ninti, because in the flash of an eye, Ninti will give them all hair makeovers. When Ninti is not using her hands to make art or to beautify her dolls, she is perusing YouTube videos on her phone, and her interests are wide and varied, all the way from gospel music to yoga sessions in Chinese. Ninti takes great pride in her appearance, and she has a unique and fun personal style. She truly relishes her femininity and enjoys getting her hair and nails done in funky and vibrant colors. Like many artists, Ninti enjoys long stretches of solitude and privacy to engage in her creative process. Ninti’s parents completely respect and honor her need for space, and they do everything they can to facilitate her independence and autonomy.

Ninti made it very clear during our visits that she wants lots of pink in her bedroom, and we will make sure to grant her wishes. Based on all we have learned about Ninti, our aim is to create a stimulating space where she can fully embrace her creative passions. We will also make sure it is cozy and comfy, as Ninti likes snuggly naps and time to relax, imagine and daydream.

We are planning to carry out Ninti’s makeover on June 24-26, 2022. Before the makeover, we will do a professional photo shoot with Ninti and her family, as we do for all of our bedroom makeover recipients, striving to capture her distinctive personality in the photos.
