After years of traveling and staying in vacation rentals, the owners of this one-bedroom condo in Quezon City thought of investing in a unit for hosting. But how can you turn a tight 26sqm space into homey escape? It’s no secret that compact spaces are challenging to design and furnish—after all, there’s only so much you can do and add to make it look bigger.

To transform the space, interior designer Nikki Audine turned to Nordic interiors for inspiration. “The vision was for the small area with one window to look as inviting and bright as possible given the layout,” she says. Though there’s only one source of natural light, the unit is far from being gloomy. White walls dominate the space—with wooden pieces and light colors completing the look. With a home as delightful and relaxing as this, we wouldn’t mind staying indoors for days.
