Scott Disick, the TV personality and ex of Kourtney Kardashian, now stars in a house-flipping show on E! called “Flip It Like Disick.”
For one of his first architectural feats during the debut season of the series, the notorious party boy and father of Kardashian’s three kids – Mason, Penelope, and Reign – built a playhouse for his children. Mason was impressed with the outcome of his dad’s project, but Penelope was too distracted to acknowledge his efforts.
So, a few episodes later, Disick decided to once again try his hand at impressing his only daughter. This time, he would remodel her room at his house.
“Because she goes back and forth to her mum Kourtney’s house because we co-parent, I want Penelope to be as comfortable at my house as she is at her mum’s,” Disick said. “And I want her room at her dad’s to be perfect.”
With a $US20,000 budget, Disick and his team of interior designers transformed Penelope’s bedroom into a pink paradise featuring a backlit headboard, pink pillows and blankets, a new rug and swivel chair, and a large-scale portrait of Penelope herself.

Scott Disick — Kourtney Kardashian’s ex and the father of her three children — recently kicked off a new E! series called “Flip it Like Disick!”
In the show, the 36-year-old and his crew remodel homes in pursuit of a profit.
But sometimes, the father-of-three sets aside his money-making ambitions to create something for his kids.
In one of the show’s first episodes, Disick spent more than $US100,000 to build a lavish playhouse for his kids in Kardashian’s backyard.
The playhouse got rave reviews from Mason, Disick’s eldest child.
But Penelope, his 7-year-old daughter, seemed too distracted to appreciate her dad’s efforts.
So a few episodes later, Disick decided to try his hand at impressing his daughter again. This time, he would remodel her room at his house.
Disick said Penelope had been raving about how cool Mason’s room was.
Plus, Disick wanted to ensure that his little girl is “as comfortable at my house as she is at her mum’s” since he and Kardashian are separated but co-parent.
Penelope’s room was admittedly bland prior to the renovation. “I want her room at her dad’s to be perfect,” Disick said.
There was just one problem. “I cannot say I know anything about decorating a little girl’s room,” Disick said. “If it were up to me, I’d make the walls concrete and poured cement floors and leave it at that.”
So he teamed up with some interior designers with whom he regularly works to bring Penelope’s dream room to life.
They consulted Penelope on what she wanted. She had a number of peculiar requests, including a “slime pit.”
The 7-year-old also requested a mirrored ceiling, to which Disick replied “that’s never gonna happen.”
Disick suggested that they could build a bench under her window, but Penelope thought that would be “cheesy.”
There was another request that Disick had trouble coming to terms with: painting the entire room pink.
But he eventually overcame his aversion to the bright colour and started planning the dream room.
He commissioned a portrait of Penelope from the Los Angeles-based pop artists known as the Kaplan Twins.

Disick was very impressed with the outcome when his assistant revealed the portrait to him.
And soon enough, the rest of the room was ready, pink walls and all.
This time around, Penelope seemed thrilled with her dad’s work.
Disick and his team replaced Penelope’s stark, white bedding…
…with a pink duvet, throw blanket, and fluffy throw pillows.
And they replaced her boring, run-of-the-mill light fixture…
…with a modern, elegant chandelier.
And, to top it all off, the wall behind her new bed features rainbow lights so she can change the colour on a whim.
Penelope did, however, think she looked like “an elf” in her portrait.
“The look on P’s face when she saw that all-pink room was honestly priceless,” Disick said. “Those are the things that I really, really do enjoy in life now.”
“She’s just like, the love of my life,” Disick added. “She just recently came around to being a daddy’s girl. Now she’s obsessed with me and it’s like the best thing ever.”
