To celebrate parties, reunions, and even casual get-togethers, there’s always one home that serves as the official venue. More often than not, it’s the family home where many of us grew up in. However, it’s inevitable for this space to show signs of wear and tear; and it’s safe to say that a couple of repair and improvement projects have been done to maintain it. While one can splurge on renovation, preserving the home’s nostalgic feel and details is also important.

Take a cue from this living area makeover by interior designer Vera Villarosa-Orila. The ancestral home hasn’t been updated in a decade, and to breathe new life into the space, Vera knew that a touch of color is needed. She also worked on the floor, the walls, and the ceiling—resulting in a living area that’s cozy and perfect for family weekends.
