Homeowners Chris and Lorie often shared their bed with daughters Abby and Xyra because the girls did not want to sleep alone. Abby and Xyra thought that their 5sqm bedroom was too dark and small for the both of them. However, the master bedroom was beginning to be too crowded for the whole family. Since Chris and Lorie needed their personal space and private time together, they decided that the girls’ bedroom had to be renovated.

Real Living asked interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo of Abode & Co. to change the space into a dual-purpose bedroom. Kristine and junior designers Kimi Manuel and Ycah Villena, whipped up a pretty, functional design that pleased both kids and parents.

Ang galing na lahat ng corner, useful. Lahat ng nilagay nila, may purpose,” says Lorie. Abby can’t help gushing about the made-over space, which now looks as beautiful as the ones they see on magazines. As for Xyra, she gleefully jumped on the furnished bed upon seeing it—in the middle of the shoot! “Si Xyra gusto na nga matulog diyan kagabi pa kahit wala pang bedsheet,” relates Lorie.
