RL Reader of the Week: Che Sabino
Our RL Reader of the Week shows us her home and reveals what she loves best about Real Living
Our RL Reader of the Week is Che Sabino. Che lives in a townhouse in Marikina.
Real Living (RL): When did you start reading Real Living?
Che: When my husband and I purchased this townhouse in 2009, I checked out every home magazine on the newsstands but I found RL to be the most practical and realistic. More than five years later, I still rely on RL for helpful hints and tips! I always look forward to grabbing a copy every month!
RL: What is your favorite Real Living issue?
Che: It has to be the October 2014 issue! It had a lot of great ideas on how to create a lived-in look for the homes. I loved the tips on organizing kids’ artworks! I was inspired to do a similar thing for my daughter’s play area.
RL: What is the biggest lesson that you have learned from Real Living?
Che: You never have to spend too much when decorating! For example, when I am bored with my living room, I change the curtains, pillows, throws, and other home décor.

The living area is spruced up with pops of orange as seen on the throw for the sofa, the floor rug, and the floor pillows.
In one corner of the pantry, Che’s teapots are placed on white shelves. Below the shelves is a two-tiered tray cart filled with tea essentials.
The teapots are paired with wall art, mason jars, and ceramic décor.
The tray cart is completed with a “You Are Precisely My Cup of Tea” print, pink polka dot and green tray liners, and colorful knickknacks.
To brighten up her daughter’s playroom, Che chose a vibrant blue shade for the walls. The toys are kept on the white wall-mounted shelves.
The walk-in closet is filled with playful décor, including a kitschy green chandelier and green neo-Baroque wall mirror. Clothes hang on racks while bags and shoes are kept in open shelves.
