While looking for the perfect place to live in Manila, Steph Tan found this 54sqm condo in Quezon City. However, she could only afford half the rent. Thankfully, the unit owner agreed to give her a discount after she offered to cover minor repairs and repainting costs.

With the help of interior designer Barbie Tan, Steph was able to make the rented space cozy, comfortable, and personalized. The one-bedroom unit is now filled with antique furniture, DIY projects, and rustic decor.
