When it comes to living spaces, there are a million different interior styles you can choose from. But for hardworking millennials, their living space can be a number of things: an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life, a home that transforms into a place of work, or a reminder of the good life they strive for every day. We asked these 14 twenty- and thirty-somethings about the type of interior design they like.

Minimalist-inspired


“I like the modern minimalist style.” —Mara, 32, copy editor

“Ideally, it would be minimalist, earthy, and bright, with hints of mid-century modern style. Then, throw in a mix of off-beat furniture and art here and there. —Paola, 22, production assistant


“Minimalist a la Japanese” —Luis, 30, in corporate finance

“Minimalist.” —Marty, 31, in real estate

“Minimalist, madaling linisin.” —Joe, 33, banker


“Minimalist with rustic elements or Mediterranean style.” —Aaron, 33, filmmaker

Modern/Contemporary with classic touches


“I like transitional style—a cross between classic and modern interiors.—Janelle, 24, social media supervisor

“Classic homey.” —Anapet, 33, HR manager

“Open concept.” —Pao, 33, economist

“Contemporary Scandinavian.” —JC, 33, master of ceremonies

Beach-inspired, Shabby chic, or Industrial


“Warm tones, clean lines, a breezy vibe—anything that reminds me of the beach!” —Dyan, 29, writer

Modern Balinese.” —Paolo,33, entrepreneur


“There are two extremes—think florals, chintz, and the whole shabby chic aesthetic with just the right amount of clutter. If keeping clean were not an issue, I’d go with a predominantly white motif in all shades and textures. For both, a big bay window with natural light streaming in.” —Pamy, 35, market researcher


“Industrialist para tulugan by night pero workshop by day.” —Monch, 34, economist
