5 Ideas to Steal from this Renovated Three-Storey Townhouse
Improve your personal space with tips and tricks inspired by this family home
Homeowner Jo-Ann Marcelo only planned on renovating the bathroom of their three-storey townhouse. However, she and her family eventually decided to transform the entire home on their own. Although they did not have an architect or interior designer, they were still able to completely update their place and create a unique and eclectic feel.
While you may have a more traditional design style in mind for your own home, there are still a few things that you can learn from Jo-Ann's one-of-a-kind Filipino house! Here are 5 decorating ideas inspired by the different nooks and crannies in the place:
For starters, you can define your place with interesting artwork! An art piece hanging on the wall can add color and character to your personal space.
We loved the intricate jewel handles on the wooden doors! Since your doors may already have the usual round knobs, you may want to simply replace them with white door knobs with hand-painted details from L'Indochine.
What better way to create an off-beat look than with mismatched furniture? For example, you may want to use different wooden chairs for your dining table.
Why have a plain and boring staircase when you can have an extraordinary one? If you are still building or renovating your personal space, you can opt for a different handrail. For example, the owners of this home chose a wooden handle that looks like a long tree branch.
However, if you have no plans of building or renovating anytime soon, you can simply spruce up the steps with rows of your favorite books.
RL Tip: You can also adorn the staircase steps with paint or wall stickers!
If you have time and money to spare, you can create a play loft! For example, the homeowner raised the roof to create a play loft for her grandchild. As you can see, there is now a staircase that leads to an upper portion of the room. Plus, there is also a bright yellow slide.
Instead of building a play loft, you can also bring in an accent chair with a vibrant shade and other colorful touches. You may even want to hang up a hammock or duyan.
