For over a decade, Real Living has been working on makeovers that help homeowners achieve an improved space. Whether it’s a major overhaul or a two-week renovation, we’ve seen how even the simplest of transformations can impact lives, too. Continuing RL’s tradition of helping you realize your best space yet, we’re excited to share that realliving.com.ph will soon be having its series of original makeovers beginning this month.

While patiently waiting for our first makeover, let’s revisit the magazine’s final makeover feature last July. After seeing Real Living’s post about a makeover contest, sisters KC and Anne thought of joining to help their father move on and start anew after their mother passed away. The two hoped to give the master bedroom a makeover since it’s where their mother stayed in for years. “Parang naging mini hospital yung room. This room needed a makeover the most, so we could move forward,” shares KC.

As if willed by fate, interior designer Erika Uichanco was tasked to work on the room. Since she shared a similar experience, working on the project went smoothly. The master bedroom is already spacious so the designer had to change the layout to make it more functional, add accents, and liven it up with refreshing colors. After the makeover, KC, Anne, and their father were more than happy with the result. “Di namin na-imagine na magiging ganyan ang itsura. Siyempre old house na rin ito. Parang hotel!” the man of the house exclaims. For KC, the new look of the room meant something bigger. “Sobra-sobrang pasasalamat namin for this chance to have a makeover. Hindi lang ito room-changing, pero life-changing pa,” she shares.

Using paints sourced from Wilcon Depot, Erika brought the space to life with a refreshing combination of light blue and off-white.
