Located in a charming neighborhood, the Avelino home is a four-storey townhouse that belongs to a family with two growing boys and a Labrador who all equally need enough space to move around in with ease. The Avelino family found the perfect solution to this dilemma when they discovered the magic of customized furniture.

The couple decided to have most of their furniture pieces designed and custom-made at Progetti. This way, each piece of furniture was the perfect size and configuration for each room in their home, maximizing the space and avoiding a cramped feeling. A bonus would be the additional storage space they can incorporate into each piece of furniture they had made. But more importantly, the cost of having Progetti make most of their home pieces became a sound investment because they bought in bulk and had most of the pieces refurbished into the finish they want rather than have them made from scratch.

To brighten up the predominantly wood theme, the couple turned to colorful and textured pillows, interesting vases, and the family’s personal collections complemented by finds from Dapitan, Regalong Pambahay, 168 in Divisoria, and MC Home Depot – all within a budget range that wouldn’t break the bank. With specialized furniture made for the family’s needs, along with bursts of color that add a youthful vibrance, the Avelino home’s renovation is a warm and cozy home that is perfect for a starter townhouse.
