Mini Makeovers: A Family Room with an Interesting Brick Wall

When interior design student Annalyn Brioso learned that her practicum required her to renovate a space, she and her parents decided that it was best to work on a room within their rented two-storey townhouse.  “Kasi requirement din talaga siya, so we decided na yung apartment nalang para magamit namin siya, e yung living room ang pinaka-used area, especially din pag may visitors.”

Before Annalyn started the month-long renovation, the entertainment area was far from what she wanted for her family. “Plain siya, at magulo. There were package boxes everywhere.”  The walls were also dingy, and the entire room lacked a cohesive theme.

“I wanted to create a functional space [that has aesthetics],” Annalyn says. Aside from that, she also wanted the area to reflect the personality of her family. The young designer chose a contemporary-eclectic theme that focused on a clean layout, modern furnishings and lines, and urban touches by way of sleek furniture, shelves, and a hip, brick wall. After the renovation, Annalyn can now look forward to sitting back and relaxing with her family in their “new” living area.
