When it comes to building, renovating or decorating a home, we always recommend for homeowners to hire design professionals. We believe that working with the right expert can make it easier for you to create the space that you've always dreamed of.

However, even if we think that it is often better to do your research and find the best person for your project, we can't help but be impressed by people who take on the challenge on their own. One of the "DIY" homes that has recently caught our attention is this three-bedroom condo owned by banker (and Real Living reader!) Tristan Sintos. 

Although Tristan worked closely with a contractor (to replace the wall finishes and the kitchen, bathroom, and floor tiles), he was entirely responsible for the style of the home. Inspired by design ideas from Real Living magazine and his out-of-the-country trips, Tristan picked the colors, materials, furniture, accessories, and other details himself.
