Architect Arlene Sanchez-Maslog bought this two-bedroom unit so that it would serve as a second home for her family. While decorating the 62sqm space, Arlene thought about her recent trip to New York City. Inspired by the charm of big city living, she created a Manhattan-inspired look with simple furniture pieces and quirky accessories.
