In designing a home for their family, parents must always consider the safety and well-being of their children. This is especially important for moms and dads with kids below the age of 12, like Dr. Ava Ramirez and Dr. Rally Ramirez who share their space with their five-year-old son, Manu. Since they wanted the best for their first-born, the couple moved out of their Malate apartment and into a Pasay condo that offered tighter security and had a less polluted and child-friendly atmosphere.

Aside from having a place free from fragile and sharp-edged furniture items that might bring harm to their little one, Ava created a contemporary Pinoy home completed with budget-friendly pieces, like a P180 woven lamp from Divisoria and a P6000 wooden dining table from Santa Rosa. She also filled the place with recycled things, such as Xerox boxes and milk cans turned into useful containers. Even cacti and herbs were planted in Gerber bottles and planters made from old tarpaulins.
