May Corpus, a mother of two, used to work for a telecommunications company, but had to quit her job and stay home in order to better take care of her youngest, Adriel, who has G6PD deficiency (G6PD is a condition that can result in hemolytic anemia.).

While most homes—especially condos and townhouses—lack space, the Corpuses’ home has too much of it. Too much, in fact, that their house looked very basic. “Gusto ko ma-revamp yung place ko para maging cozy and ma-accessorize,” says May, whose goal was to create a comfortable and stimulating home for her children.

Interior designer Ayet San Jose-Aniag, principal designer of Design1528, also noticed that the main problem of May’s home was that it was plain and bare; there were very few pieces of furniture, and too much space. “It’s okay that there’s space, but it’s too spacious. At the same time, there was a long wall. Kailangan i-define yung areas. There’s also a lack of color.”

While May gave Ayet free reign, the former was vocal about her wish to have a divider between their living and dining areas, which shared the same open space. Ayet made sure to also guide May in identifying what she wanted for her home. The designer and homeowner soon came up with a design peg—a refreshing palette of green and neutrals with pops of brights. Here are some of Ayet’s tips on how to achieve this colorful makeover.
