RL Makeovers: A Living, Dining, and Bathroom Makeover in Quezon City
Interior designer Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral gives a grieving homeowner a brand new start
Homeowner Vynette Villadolid-dela Cruz lost her husband Richard three years ago. Since then, she has been living on her own in a two-storey apartment in a compound shared with her parents-in-law. She wrote to Real Living to improve her space, in the hopes that a home makeover would help her heal after her heartbreaking loss.
In order to help Vynette on her road to recovery, interior designer Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral of HMP Design Solutions, Inc. took on the project. Michelle repainted the blue walls, replaced the bulky furniture, and completely changed the bathroom.

Since Michelle chose white walls for a clean and spotless look, she had to complement them with vibrant pops of color. In the living area, she hung wall art and topped the old gallinera with printed throw pillows. She chose decor in blue and green because these are Vynette and Richard's favorite colors.
Instead of replacing all of the old white tiles, Michelle decided to change the floor tiles and some parts of the wall. This helped her save on money and create an interesting pattern.
Since the bathroom used to only have a faucet and a toilet that did not even have a flush feature, Michelle chose a sink, mirror, showerhead set, and a toilet from Handyman.
