When it comes to designing your own home, you should remember what you want – and do not want – to have. For his bachelor pad, Daniel de Castro knew that he needed a space that he describes as “modern without being cold, minimalist yet comfortable, and functional without sacrificing style.” To create the two-bedroom condo of his dreams, he turned to interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo for help.

According to Daniel, the design had to include the things that were most important for him: a shoe cabinet by the entrance that would keep guests’ footwear hidden, a wine cabinet, a stylish “media wall” for his flat-screen TV and entertainment needs, and comfortable bay window ledges. He also asked for furniture pieces with clean, simple lines from IKEA and Kartell alongside artwork by local artists like sculptor Michael Cacnio and painter Cornelius Acasio.
