Real Living (RL): What is your favorite Real Living section? Why?

Pau: The Real Living Makeover section! When I still lived with my dad (who is an architect), he used to purchase a new item for our living room and instantly change the entire space. However, I never realized that those changes meant practicing styling skills and taking a lot of measurements. I also never showed any interest in home design. 

But, when I started to live on my own, I learned that buying new stuff or styling old ones can be so challenging. Not everything that looks nice on its on will look good with all the beautiful stuff you already have. It's a trial and error process, especially for someone like me who doesn't have any design background. This makes me appreciate the Makeover section even more.  

RL: What do you love best about Real Living?

Pau: The DIY projects, the shops where I can purchase unique pieces with reasonable prices and the "expert tips" bubbles! Those tip bubbles prove that great things come in small packages. They help readers find more home improvement techniques.
