Q. What’s the appropriate look for my three-year-old son’s bedroom in terms of design and furniture arrangement? —Anne Advincula
A. A three-year-old boy’s room should be bright, comfortable, and conducive to relaxation and fun activities. Storage like drawers and shelves may be incorporated with the bed or installed on the wall to save space. The use of bright colors as accents will make the room look happy, and painting a mural will also add depth to the room and make it look creative. —Joy Ejercito, interior designer
Q. I want to renovate our condo unit for our growing kids. It used to be a showroom with a very ‘80s style, but I’d like to keep the traditional Filipino furniture. —Rina Gonzales
A. Your ‘80s furniture can still be revived by having it repainted in a wenge stain and re-upholstered in neutral colored leather, or fabric with striped or floral designs. And since you have kids, use nano fabrics that are spill-proof, stain-proof, and sweat-resistant. —Joy Ejercito, interior designer
