Inspiration is just about everywhere on Instagram, but for those who are after design ideas for a small space, look no further than Claudine Medina's Instagram feed, @interiorsbyclaudine. The licensed interior designer specializes in giving condominium units a bright and airy feel, to the point where you won't even believe how small the home actually is.

Take a look at some of her work below:

Claudine quite literally let the light into this one-bedroom corner unit by moving a bedroom drywall.


A costly overhaul isn't required to give your home a new look. Claudine only gave this unit brighter lighting fixtures and didn't touch the flooring and wall color at all. To further minimize cost, she used affordable decor but made it look more luxurious by mixing neutral hues with splashes of color.

Painting the storage units white and adding a patterned backsplash made a huge difference to this previously dull condo kitchen.


To give this space a personal touch, the interior designer maximized the owners' exising accessories and photographs instead of purchasing too much new decor.

We're in love with the minimal color palette and wooden accents in this 30-sqm space.


Claudine transformed this dark and cluttered bedroom into a Pinterest-worthy one with the chicest working area.
