Homeowner Irish Aguillon and her mother Lilian had already tried to fix their home but there were things that still needed to be improved. For one, interior designer John Vigilia thought that the bright green walls were too loud. He also noticed that the TV blocked the natural light from the windows. It was also difficult to open the door because the TV was in the way.

To address these problems, John and his team set out to repaint the living area in more visually appealing colors. Everything bright green was repainted white, and an accent wall was created by painting the largest wall in the area mustard yellow, using paints from Handyman.

While the interior designer moved the TV and other pieces, he managed to keep most of the major furniture, like the two two-seater gallinera settees that have been with the family for ten years.
