Home Design: Winning votes for a Merlgen modern B&W kitchen

  A 90 ’ s traditional kitchen remodeled after more than 20 years of heavy use was a winning move for one former Davao politician.    It was a home built in 1994 for a family of five set within a property that allows a sizable garden to embrace it.
