The Visqueras have lived in their current townhouse in the south for seven years. Homeowner Grace Visquera, a bookkeeper by profession, loves to decorate her house during her free time, and it shows in the décor and the calligraphy pieces scattered around her living area.

Throughout the ground floor of her family’s townhouse, you can see touches of Grace’s taste in décor, which veers toward the delicate and feminine. The mom of two thoughtfully mixed and matched different styles of chairs to create her dining set, and the living area contained a neutral-colored sofa paired with turquoise stools for a punch of color. “Mahilig talaga ako magbasa ng Real Living ever since, tapos tina-try ko yung ibang tips. Pero yung todong makeover, hindi ko siya ma-prioritize sa budget,” she says, adding that she needed guidance on how to create a home where the furnishings actually matched.

Decorator Grace Moslares of Magara Designs was brought in, and the two Graces immediately hit it off. What Moslares noticed in the home was that, in spite of the clutter, Visquera had a fine collection of decorative objects and accessories. “One of the first things I asked Grace [Visquera], besides to declutter, was to put all of the home accessories that she liked in one box. I noticed that she had a lot of geometric patterns, and items in blue-green or purple. So that’s what we went with,” shares Moslares.

Moslares also fixed up Visquera’s home office under the stairs (to see the office makeover, click here). After giving the living and dining areas a fresh wash of seafoam paint and making a few minor repairs, plus the introduction of new furniture pieces from Avino Fine Living, the Visquera home now sports a refreshing, airy look that makes the homeowner’s innate style shine through.
