Real Living Room by Room Makeover Book Launch
October 26, 2009
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!
