Decorating to Feel Like Home


“The hospital doesn’t feel like home, and I think when you get decorations, it makes you feel more comfortable,” reflects 15-year-old Mac Bailey. Mac decorated rooms through Once Upon A Room at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital in Santa Monica with his sister, 17-year-old Lily Bailey. Lily says, “I had surgery on my back when I was a kid. I’ve seen what a difference it makes to have a room decorated, especially during the holiday season. I think Once Upon A Room makes a world of difference in a patient’s spirits. I think these decorations will help this boy feel more calm, comfortable and happier on Christmas morning.”
