A 154sqm, Two-Storey Penthouse Filled with Prints and Patterns
From patterned walls to quilted beddings, this colorful abode truly embodies femininity admist an urban jungle
Interior designer Van Acuña took on the challenge of converting a three-bedroom unit into a four-bedroom home for a mother and her two daughters. Before, the trio used to live in a condo, but decided to move because their former residential area often gets flooded. The mother was insistent on wallpapering their new abode with prints, a design preference that Van agreed with.
With an English garden as inspiration, Van played with shades of green and brown accented by bright colors. “Since the home is located within the city, I chose the garden as an inspiration,” Van explains. Bright hues of green and blue, with hints of pink — spring colors — can be seen all over the house, and are balanced out by shades of neutrals. The spring garden motif obviously works, as the two-storey penthouse exudes a fantastic blend of cheery calm — the perfect respite in the midst of a concrete jungle.
