Real Living Room by Room Makeover Book Launch

RLMAKEOVERCOVER

Last friday, I attended the Real Living’s Room by Room Makeover Book Launch.  I was really excited to attend this event as I have wanted to renovate our house.

I have been struggling for months to renovate my house due to water leaks in my upstairs bathroom.  To repair would be substantial & so I’ve been looking for better ways to fix it.

Real Living is a magazine that gives its readers makeovers to their home.  Now, they came up with a book that compiled amazing room-by-room transformations w/ before & after pictures.

In partnership w/ Robinson’s Handyman, Real Living Room by Room Makeover book was launched at Robinson’s Ermita.

Real Living managing director Tisha Alvarez-Angluben gave a talk on how NOT to win a makeover.

I remember specifically these items which she noted like providing pictures of:

  • an empty space
  • intentionally messed up space/area

Designer Hannah Acab-Faustino discussed instant makeovers & shared spaces.  She showed us some before & after pictures as well as how she designed to make it look so good.

My takeaway from this talk are these steps to a successful home makeover:
R – Re-think
E – Establish
D – Design
O – Order

Pictures from the event can be found here.

For just Php120, the book will definitely give you lots of tips on space planning, organizing, color schemes and a lot more.  The Do-It-Yourself projects will show us how we can transform our home even with just a short amount of time & money.  Now available at bookstores & newsstands.  I have a copy myself! :)

    Hi, I found you through Entrecards and had to comment on this post because it piqued my interest. That magazine/book and event sound real interesting. I always enjoy those home make overs on TV, and it would be much more fun to attend a talk on one in real life.
