Real Living Space: Bedroom Makeover

9/04/2013 09:56:00 PM

Real Living Magazine asked me if I wanted to participate for their Real Living Space event. Without even knowing all the details, I, of course, jumped right in. Basically, they would get 8 designers/decorators to do different spaces in Trion Towers and it will be open for public viewing for two days with various exciting events going on. All items used are up for sale with discounts from the sponsors. See all details here.

I was assigned the bedroom in one unit, with a client profile in mind. The "client" is a 25-30 year old single gal, who earns 70-150k monthly, loves to entertain, loves reading books and magazines, and calls her style "feminine yet quirky".

This is the bedroom before the makeover.

It's fine but lacks personality and color. Since my "client" is femme and quirky, I wanted to inject tons of personality to the space. After sourcing items from the sponsors, here's the mood board I came up with.

It's a very small bedroom but I don't want it to be small in style so I filled the walls. If I can't decorate horizontally, I'll do it vertically. :) Every space counts!

Here's a sneak peek of the staging process.

Punch of yellow and patterns.

Hang the curtain using command hooks. Haha.. we can't drill so we need to improvise!

Started hanging the gallery wall...

But edited them to lighten the space a bit and this is the final wall.
Oh for orders for the deerhead wall decor, you can email me. :) We can do it in any color you want, it's solid carved wood. P5500. 

This is the other side of the room. This is not yet styled, no books nor magazine yet. I just placed all the decors in there and took this very grainy night photo. Haha.. 
I'll post the final reveal next week. But you can see the room personally, and all the other designer's spaces on the Real Living Space even on Sept 14-15. Details below.
See you there!


  1. $75,000-$150,000 monthly? Wow.

  2. haha.. it's in Philippine peso :)

  3. Love the mood board, Elle. It's fresh, bright and feminine. Another successful project, no doubt.


Thanks for dropping by. I'd love to hear what you think! :)
