With bedding, furniture, and decor from brands such as Young America, Pali, and Nickelodeon Rooms by Lea, Rooms Come True keeps children’s hideouts stylish from infancy through their teens. The store's double-decker showroom inspires shoppers with more than 20 colourful displays of completed children’s rooms. Upstairs, quarters for infants, girls, and boys demonstrate how to arrange pieces to create aesthetic charm while leaving space for activities. Downstairs, more mature looks for tweens and teens include pieces that multitask—such as a bed that doubles as a place to hang out or a dresser that doubles as a best friend. The staff can help shoppers match classic, enduring furnishings with trendy, expressive accessories to suit each child’s personality and interests.
With more than 25 years of portrait-, event-, and landscape-photography experience, Dale Power works with his subjects to capture one-of-a-kind memories. His studio welcomes subjects with relaxed vibes and professional flair, providing four main backdrop sets from which to choose. Cheese sayers have total freedom to select the backdrop that suits their artistic proclivities, including scenery such as "the pond" and "the treehouse" as well as domestic settings such as "grandma's house" and "the white door." Power and his posing patrons can also flit away to scenic locations within the St. John's, Goulds, or Mount Pearl areas to have the professional lens pointer snag precious moments in a location of their choosing. After pose-a-thons, models can select their desired portraits on a Power Photography computer, ultimately gaining professionally finished, frame-ready prints. For more personalized shoots, Power joins lovebirds in locations of their choosing during wedding-day shoots. He ensures relaxing sessions by guaranteeing a rescheduling in the event of rain and Photoshop skills capable of editing out lurking Bigfoots.
