The first house that you build, furnish, and decorate will always hold a special place in your heart. Nobody knows this better than real estate broker Mathew Alingarog. Although Mathew and his family have been renovating and selling homes for some time now, this 400sqm property is the first structure that they constructed from scratch. This newly built haven turned out to be the perfect space for a small family of three.
To personalize the already beautiful area, the new homeowners hired Mathew's wife, interior designer Mikki Alingarog, to furnish and decorate the rooms. The result is a bright and vibrant place ideal for them and their loved ones.
