A condo unit isn’t exactly the ideal spot for displaying antiques and art, but interior designer John Vigilia made it happen for homeowner Judd Salas and his collection. John turned the unit into an antique showroom and art gallery of sorts, except that it’s solely for the homeowner’s (and his friends’) own consumption.

Upon entrance, an almost hundred-year-old art deco dining table welcomes the guests. To the right is the kitchen, with cabinets painted in white, and granite countertops that extend to the ceiling. A few steps away is the living area with painted white walls and cabinets, and natural light streaming in from the wide windows. The art and antique collection is mostly what gives life, character, and color to this room. On the other side of the living room is the master bedroom, also done in white except for the green accent wall and showcases more art and antique pieces. The room adjacent to it is the bathroom, just a little bit smaller than the master bedroom, but just as aesthetically on point.
