8 Makeovers that Stood Out in 2015
Let’s look back at the inspiring stories that you loved and shared
From giving homeowners a new perspective and a beautiful place to come home to, the makeover team really steps up their game to make the most of a given budget and to get the job done within a tight schedule. Whether it’s a P12,000 makeover or a complete interior overhaul, here are eight stories that encouraged us to continuously improve our homes:
With the help of interior designer Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral, the homeowner was given a new perspective after a heartbreaking loss and a cozy and functional space too! To transform the place, the designer repainted the walls, replaced the furniture, and changed the entire bathroom.
Working on a small space can be challenging. But what if you only have 9sqm to work with? It can be quite difficult but interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino did a fantastic job of transforming this shared kiddie room with neutral colors and tons of storage options to keep the space organized.
It’s amazing to see how homeowners can apply their DIY skills to improve their spaces. Real Living reader Jill Lejano worked on their home’s kitchen–transforming the once drab and messy space into an organized cooking haven–on her own.
Homeowner and RL reader Danny Baluyot Jr. has been sleeping in the same bedroom for years, coming home to the same bright green walls and old pieces of furniture. With a budget of P12,000, Danny was able to create a relaxing new haven by adding decorative touches and new furniture, and repainting the walls.
Aside from working on repairs, makeovers also taught us how to make our homes look nicer and more comfortable. The owners of this 21sqm condo didn’t know how and where to begin but with the help of interior designer Vivian Gacad, they were able to achieve a chic, clean, and cozy space.
Since the owner wasn’t able to complete her plan of improving the kitchen and dining areas, interior designer Andrew Galano stepped in and built new walls. He also improved the electrical wiring and added new furniture to create not just a beautiful space, but safe areas, too.
After weathering storms, this property was left with many problems. To improve the vacation home, interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy and her construction team fixed the damaged roof, replaced the broken windows, and gave the home a charming new appeal.
While building the extension of the family home, the owners of this property experienced a setback after a fallen sampaloc tree hit the house during Typhoon Milenyo. To help the family, decorator and former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon improved the structure of the house, chose happy colors, and invested in the right furniture pieces and building materials.
