A Chic and Modern Country Style Apartment
The sunny ambiance of a rural abode is replicated in this modern country style home in Manila
With her main house in the province, this homeowner wanted her Manila apartment to have the same airy ambiance of a rural home. So when she commissioned interior designer Macie Lorenzo, she decided she wanted to have a modern, country style home filled predominantly with white to create open, sunny spaces.
The homeowner and her daughter stay in the apartment only on weekends—bonding in the kitchen creating home cooked meals. So the 144sqm space was fitted with only two bedrooms to make space for a bigger kitchen. A charming breakfast nook completes the kitchen space—separated from the entire home by glass sliding doors that still allow plenty of the natural light to stream into the rooms. Chic white furniture paired with white washed, weathered wood created that country feel. Small doses of patterns and colors (mostly in blue) were added to make the space more cheery—completing the entire look. Despite being in the city, the homeowner is happy to have a beautiful space with all the charms of the country.
