Upon acquiring their two-storey property in 2001, Noel and Andrea delos Reyes had to use hand-me-down furniture from their relatives. A home makeover was at the top of their wish list, yet at the bottom of their priorities, because of their growing family's needs.

Aside from the worn-out furniture, the yellow lighting and overwhelming clutter made their home less than perfect. “We’ve always wanted to fix the house but we didn’t know where to start…we bought shelves, small things, until we had to acknowledge the fact we cannot do it [renovation] on our own,” explains Andrea.

Design consultant Grace Moslares helped the family by replacing the old lights, updating the existing furniture pieces, and bringing in more interesting prints.
