Type of Home: 52sqm Condo

Style of Home: French-Scandinavian

Interior Designer: Ben Nasayao

What’s an interior designer to do when his clients say they love Scandinavian spaces and at the same time they want their home to be a Francophiles’ haven? In Ben Nasayao’s case, he merged both his clients’ interests and made a home based on those: a bright, hip, and spacious Scandinavian-inspired unit with French elements scattered all over. Not only that, he also found a way to incorporate a tropical-bohemian vibe with the working theme. His reason? “Think global, love local.”

As if it weren’t challenging enough, he only had a month to do the designing and the rest of the work had to be done remotely in his Bicol home. And because of the limited time frame, he wasn’t able to have some furniture customized for the tight space, so everything had to be store bought, while also making sure that he doesn’t go over the budget.

Instead of backing down from the challenge, Ben did the opposite and even had fun incorporating some pun and quirk (through his artwork) in this project.
