Homeowners Mayee and Mayk Marzan's three-storey house was already impressive. The couple complemented their industrial-inspired bare cement walls with rustic Pinoy pieces. However, some of the areas still needed improvement, including the bedroom of eleven-year-old Enzo and seven-year-old Inigo. The space only had mattresses for the boys to sleep on and a few old pieces that no longer look good or function well.

To give the boys a better place for studying, playing, and sleeping, interior designer Anais Silvestre worked on the space. She built a bunk bed using metal angle bars and plywood sheets purchased from Handyman and colorful banig from Baler, Quezon. She also used old wood panels to make a cabinet, shelves, and other pieces.

Instead of leaving the mattresses on the floor, Anais used metal angle bars, plywood sheets, and colorful banig to make a double bed for two boys. 

She also dressed the beds with graphic pillowcases and bedsheets from Robinsons Department Store.

Anais also put up a trio of mirrors on the wall near the foot of the bed. 

On the other end of the bed is a chest of drawers to store clothes, toys, and other belongings.

Since the bedroom did not have a proper place for studying, homeowner Mayk built a work desk from old wood panels.

Anais removed all of the excess containers and placed the belongings in the new open cabinet. The neat storage containers are from Robinsons Department Store.

How Much It Costs:

Robinsons Department Store and Handyman
Decor, soft furnishings, shelves, paint, finishes, and other fittings - P 70,000
Labor and other materials - P 30,000
Grand Total:
100,000
