Just like many other homes, the house of Cyrus, Aries, and their four-year-old daughter Victoria used to be filled with mismatched pieces. Aries explains that their furniture and appliances were from their parents or the apartments they once lived in. As the family started having their own things, they moved many of their old belongings into their old bodega.
