Located on the fifth floor of a walk-up condominium, the 30sqm home of couple Romeo and Joan was filled with clutter, discolored walls, and worn-down vinyl floors. The small space also did not have enough lighting fixtures and storage options.

After only two weeks of renovation and decoration, the homeowners are more than happy with the output. Joan shares that she particularly likes the dining area. "It's so vibrant, fresh, modern, and relaxing. We actually conducted a prayer meeting there with our cell group on the very first night we returned [to] our beautiful condo," she shares.
