Homeowner Abby Flores wanted a makeover so that she could surprise her mom Sol who works abroad. While the family already repainted their mom’s room, the rest of the house still needs improvement.

Although design consultant Grace Moslares initially planned on renovating only the living room, she eventually transformed the kitchen, dining, bathroom, and bedrooms as well. Her hard work resulted in a beautiful space that the mom, the relatives, and all of their guests can appreciate.

This makeover would not have been possible without Grace's team of happy helpers:

  • Mariestell Moslares of Magara Designs (Mobile: 0921-563-3146), who took care of the crystal embellishments, specialized throw pillows, table runners, sun catchers, and crystal tie-backs.
  • Pando Adarayan of Magara Designs (Mobile: 0919-709-8033), the general contractor who took charge of the carpentry, masonry, plumbing, electrical, and paint finishing.
  • Andy Bright, Lerie Pangilinan, Pits Clemente, and the Boys of Magara, especially Arnel and Bobby—indeed, it takes a village to pull off a makeover!
