Get the Look of a Young Couple's 55sqm Modern Condo

Living in a small space? Here are stylish pieces you can splurge on

Photography: Dakila Angeles and Paolo Feliciano

Homeowners Chrissy and Bart Dalusong purchased their first home before the building was even ready for turnover. When the condo was finally ready for occupancy, the couple's bare unit only had tiled flooring, bathroom fixtures, and a small kitchen counter. Now, the space is filled with modern pieces in fun colors and playful patterns.

Achieve a similar look in your own home with these furniture and accessories.
