Since this tiny unit used to be a commercial space for rent, it has served as a party needs store, an RTW store, a hair salon, and as a store room, among other things. Eventually, it was converted into a studio apartment for homeowners Chino and Tricia Gaston. 

To make the place more livable, Chino tried to fix the roof, paint the walls, and rearrange the furniture. However, in spite of his best efforts, he and his wife were still quite unhappy with the results. 

Fortunately for them, interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino was able to turn everything around. She chose a charming country-inspired style and picked out light earth colors like brown, blue, and green. She also replaced the worn-out vinyl flooring material with vinyl wood planks from Apo Floors.
