Homeowners Nestor and Emy Gonzalvo, together with their two kids, used to live in a smaller apartment. Their new dwelling came with a basement that originally had three rooms—two of which were merged to create a family room where they could spend time and relax together. Consequently, this family room also turned into a spot where their kids can leave their toys alongside old pieces of furniture and other belongings from the old apartment.

Emy tried to improve the room’s overall appearance through accessorizing and went as far as repainting some of the furniture, but to no avail. When interior designer Vivian Gacad inspected the space, she discovered the clutter, the room’s gloomy vibe, and the worn-out furniture, among others. Thankfully, these factors can easily be solved with a few adjustments.
