When we first featured Lovi’s home, we were given a peek into her charming dining and living areas. Aside from the chic furniture pieces and accessories, we loved how a muted palette with touches of blue can instantly turn a space into a calming retreat. Given Lovi’s busy schedule, we’re sure that coming home to a clean and elegant space is a reward like no other. Designed by Heim Interiors, the pad is a spacious haven where the actress’s furry companions can roam around freely, too. Check out snapshots of Lovi’s space—from the clutter-free kitchen to the inviting bedroom—and take note of the tips that can help you achieve something similar.

It seems like only yesterday when Lovi decided to move into a new space. The actress shared a photo of the property under construction, with bare walls and materials scattered all over. From the front door, guests will be greeted by a compact kitchen. You'll be surprised to see how it looks today.

After the renovation, the compact kitchen is now a blue-and-white dream, with Moroccan tiles serving as accents.

The beautiful tiles used as backsplash go well with the white finishes in the area. For a seamless look, built-in niches were incorporated and used to hold the appliances added to the space.

Adding touches of green in the form of potted plants complements the details of the tiles. Aside from succulents and faux plants, you can also have herbs in cute containers.

From afar, the kitchen looks heavenly with the dominance of white. Even the lighting fixtures complement the clean and minimalist look. 

RL Tip: La Europa Ceramica has a wide range of products you can choose from. Aside from picking tiles for your kitchen, check out their options for your floors and even tiles for the bathroom. Follow them on Facebook for more details or visit their showroom at Unit G06 Robins Design Center, #31 Meralco Avenue, Pasig City.

In homes with an open layout, it's quite a challenge to make each area stand out while working on a cohesive look. Take your cue from Lovi's space. The dining area features a mix of classic and modern touches. While she opted for mismatched chairs, you'll see that these are tufted pieces to tie the look together.

The stainless steel legs of the bench and table add to the seamless look. To make the dining area stand out, elegant droplights were added and suspended from the ceiling, giving the area a warm, inviting glow. Opting for a white accent mirror adds to a clean look, while still serving as an accent piece.

RL Tip: Choosing droplights can be tricky. Consult with the store attendants and make sure you bring measurements with you. Pick a lighting piece that complements the look you're going for. For a classic-meets-modern feel, Azcor has options you can choose from. Those who love an industrial-inspired or Scandinavian aesthetic, Home Cartel has a collection you can check out.

Decorating a home doesn't just involve paint, furniture, and accessories. Your curtains can create an impact, too. 

RL Tip: If you have a huge window or a sliding glass door, maximize it by having sheer white curtains. These curtains give enough privacy while still letting sunlight in. If you feel like creating a moody ambiance, layer it with blackout curtains. Pick one that matches your home's color scheme.

Do you often wish to add a walk-in closet/vanity area in your space? You don't need a lot to make it happen.

Invest in enough storage pieces or have built-in shelves customized to fit in the available space. A corner or a part of your bedroom can be converted into a functional nook with the right must-haves.

If you wish to have a vanity area, there are pieces available in store that you can purchase and add to your space. Pick one with multiple drawers to avoid clutter and to help you organize your essentials. Pair it with a comfy accent chair and allot space for a full-length mirror to complete the look.
