In order to create a more spacious home, marketing manager and fashion blogger Lana Tiotuyco turned two 22.5sqm units into one 45sqm unit. With the feel of a Scandinavian space in mind, Lana chose white walls and mid-century modern furniture.

If you would like a similar style for your own space, here are furniture and accessories worth considering.
