Reader Home: A Clean and Bright Tropical House in Iligan City
Inspired by her sister's memory, RL Reader Vanessa Joy Namocatcat-Ilago shares how she transformed her Mindanao home
Our RL Reader of the Week is Vanessa Joy "Bang" Namocatcat-Ilago. Bang lives in a multi-storey house in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte, Mindanao.
Real Living (RL): When did you start reading Real Living?
Bang: My mom-in-law is an avid collector of Real Living magazines. Reading back issues is my favorite past time every time we visit their home. Now, I have started collecting my own RL magazines and often browse the website, too.
RL: What is your favorite RL section?
Bang: I love the Real Makeover section! It’s inspiring and gives readers a lot of tips. I particularly love the before and after photos!
RL: What are the greatest lessons that you have learned from Real Living?
Bang: I learned the following things:
- Having an organized and clutter-free home is achievable
- Renovating one’s home doesn't need to be very expensive
- DIY crafts, plants and other inexpensive decor make the home beautiful
- Also, making use of old pieces—refurbishing furniture instead of buying new ones
