RealHomeTour_October2011_Excerpt_inside.jpgVicky Marchadesch's home is a happy mix of refurbished items that have been passed on to her by family and friends. But far from looking dated and old, her home, featured in the October 2011 issue of Real Living Magazine, is sleek and stylish, thanks to her tendency to keep things neat and her determination to stick to a black and white palette.

After moving to a new house after Typhoon Ondoy in 2009, Vicky was aided by a friend who helped her breathe new life into her storm-ravaged furniture. "Nothing was thrown away (post-Ondoy)," she tells RL

The result of her hard work is a home that features her prized refurbished furniture pieces, DIY projects, and souvenirs from her trips to Europe and Asia. But even with her personality bursting from every corner of the home, Vicky says that everything is still a work in progress. She mentions making changes to her son's room, repainting a secretary's desk, and adding a long dreamed-of item--a four-poster-bed--among the projects she plans to tackle soon.
