Taking inspiration from an accent wall that the client saved as peg, interior designers Honey Mutia Cervantes and Rosa Manduriao of Desaurum Co. Interior Design Studio came up with a modern look that's cozy, inviting, and perfect for a vacation home. Originally a two-bedroom unit, this one-bedroom home showcases a sophisticated vibe, calming touches of gray, and a hotel-like ambiance many will love.

It's safe to say that a loft-type condo is an ideal space in the city. You can use the ground floor to entertain friends, while the loft is perfect for relaxing, reading, and spending some quiet time. Since the owner dreamt of living in New York, he designed the space with the Big Apple in mind. Wooden touches complement the raw finish on the walls, while personal collections give the space a distinct, homey vibe.

In finalizing the look of this studio for rent in Tagaytay, the owners wanted guests to feel at home in an instant as well as encourage the occupants to look back on their fondest childhood memories. To accomplish this, they opted to complete the unit with cheerful pops of yellow and teddy bears as accents. The result is a delightful home away from home, with cute accessories that seem to encourage you to forget your worries and have a good time.

He also incorporated his brother's existing furniture pieces into the final look to save on cash.
