CRE­AT­ING A WELL-THOUGHT–OUT SPACE DOESN’T NEED TO BE EX­PEN­SIVE. TRY THESE TIPS FOR STARTERS:

Real Living (Philippines) - - Real Makeover -

Go for DiY art. The paint­ings that are now dis­played in the liv­ing area was made by one of Ma­gara

AD F eTsEigRns’ lead painter, Jason Bon­gat. The art­work is made out of acrylic paint and left­over wood! If you have the tal­ent, why not cre­ate art your­self?

Have pieces re­uphol­stered. Rather than throw­ing out the old sofa and buy­ing a new one, Moslares had it re­uphol­stered in a neu­tral fab­ric. She also had match­ing sofa slip­cov­ers made for easy re­moval and clean­ing.

add a few col­or­ful pieces. Neu­tral col­ors—brown, white, black, beige, and the like—are usual fa­vorites of home­own­ers when fur­ni­ture shop­ping be­cause they’re easy to match. How­ever, a room full of neu­trals may look or feel heavy or bor­ing. Mix in a few col­or­ful pieces for in­ter­est, like how Ma­gara De­signs chose a plush set­tee to go with the black-and-brown din­ing ta­ble.
