Q: My family wants a minimalist style for our 200sqm apartment. Can you recommend an interior designer who specializes in that design but is also willing to look at how we live and advise space allocation according to our needs?—Jin Austriaco

A: Minimalist style is always a safe bet if you want clean, modern interiors! A mark of any good designer is the ability to adapt to what the client wants and bring it to the next level. Even if an interior designer does not usually specialize in minimalist design, he or she should be able to cater to the needs of their clients!

Instead of simply recommending interior designers that work only on minimalist projects, here are the portfolios of versatile and talented Real Living contributors: 

Hannah Acab-Faustino

Kristine Neri-Magturo

Michelle Dumlao-Pastoral

Peaches de Guzman-Grey
