Real Living (Philippines) - - Real Makeover -

* Go AFTER­for mul­ti­pur­pose fur­ni­ture. “Yung wash­ing ma­chine niya, naka­ha­rang… and since wala siyang func­tion­ing din­ing ta­ble, naisip ko, why not a make a counter na dito na lang sila kakain, with stor­age para tago yung wash­ing ma­chine?” says Van of the cus­tom-built counter. “Para makatipid ka sa space, pili

ka ng piece na marami ng func­tions.” * avoid dark colors. “Mas ma­g­a­nda kung muted lang or light colors lang. Sa walls, mas in­aad­vise ko to use white lang or very light colors kasi mag­mu­mukha ta­la­gang small yung space ka­pag any­thing darker.”

* add in­ter­est with pat­terns. In­stead of leav­ing the walls bare, Van jazzed them up in­stead with dy­namic pat­terns, as seen in the Stu­dio Eleven wall­pa­per and the mix of sub­way tiles and tri­an­gu­lar lines in the kitchen.
