One look at this condo unit is enough for anyone to know that it is not your usual cozy home. From the double doors to the sprawling space (by high-rise living standards) and the eclectic decor, it's hard to believe that it just serves as a halfway home for a couple and their adult son. 

Even before the turnover of the unit, the homeowner—a fashionable lady with a vivacious personality—already had a vision in mind, so she immediately sought help from interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino. Initially, the owner handed Hannah some books by Mary McDonald, a Los-Angeles based interior designer known for her timeless but kooky style, but Hannah wanted to take it to the next level by adding her own flair. 

Keeping the homeowner's preferences in mind, she started working on the designs but decided to add personal touches to make the space the family's own. In the end, they were left with a beautiful haven that is bright, colorful, and airy with out-of-the-box details—just as the homeowner pleased.
