Every parent can tell you that having a child instantly and permanently changes your life. Once you have a child of your own, your lifestyle, priorities, and future plans will all be transformed overnight. One of the things that will be entirely different is the way you think of your living arrangements. For example, although a studio or one-bedroom condo may be good enough for two people, it may not be suitable for a growing family.

This is exactly what prompted this married couple to invest in this brand new property. The businessman and his doctor wife moved from their first house together and into a four-storey townhouse in San Juan so that they could have a more spacious and comfortable place for their two young children.

Interior designer Jane Ong improved the already beautiful, semi-detached townhouse by completely furnishing and decorating the living area, dining area, kitchen, all five bedrooms, and every other part of the 450sqm home.
