Before homeowners JB and Aissa Panganiban married in February 2014, they invested in a 30sqm condo in Bonifacio Global City. However, they soon realized that the small space would not be enough for the family that they planned to have together. Thankfully, Aissa's grandfather had a rent-to-own 86sqm unit available in a nearby building.

With the help of interior designer Elaine Isip-Tiangco, the new two-bedroom property has been turned into a country-inspired home. In the living area, a plain white wall has been transformed into a "brick wall" with ribbon-grained wooden pieces. On the other hand, the standard flooring material has been replaced with wood-like tiles from a local home depot. The space was furnished with made-to-order frames and mirrors from Elaine's aunt in Tanay, Rizal, customized furniture pieces from Angeles, Pampanga, and rustic decor.
