“Dream house ko po ito,” the 38-year-old mom of two shares in an interview with SmartParenting.com.ph. “Preloved po ‘yung house, bale repaint lang talaga ‘yung pinaka-ginawa, pati na rin ‘yung mga built-in cabinets."

Since they were on a budget, Erika took care of the interiors herself. While the house was being renovated, she ordered the furniture that would go with the space. “Own idea ko po ‘yung design at kung saan nakapuwesto ‘yung mga accent and décor,” she adds.
