No plumbing, unwanted pests, problematic leaks, and the absence of a ceiling made this home a nightmare for homeowner Angel and her family—especially after finding out they were expecting a baby at the time. Due to their focus on revamping the rest of the units in their family-owned building, their own home fell by the wayside and became the neglected space they no longer could tolerate. For fear of the new baby’s safety and health, the family finally decided to renovate the house with the help of interior designer Grace Moslares.

Although the entire family was excited about the renovation, Angel’s father, Leody, wasn’t so thrilled—considering that the home holds so much sentimental value. So Grace planned a design that would incorporate the family’s old, beloved furniture, mixing it all together into a Filipiniana-style home—a style the family has an eye for. Many of the home’s former problems were fixed from the plumbing to the ceiling. After securing the structure of the house, Grace started decorating. She created a home that perfectly suited the family’s taste, belongings, and personal pursuits. The family now has a safe and cozy dwelling to welcome the newest addition to their brood.
