When you have concrete plans and ideas in mind, everything else comes easy. This is exactly how it turned out for this couple-slash-homeowners of this 34sqm condo unit located in Makati. Before they got married, they decided to invest in the unit which happens to have a stunning view of the Manila Bay sunset. Their wedding, a yellow-and-gray-affair, became the inspiration for the unit’s color scheme.

Interior designer Van Acuña-Solaña came into the picture to help the couple make the most of their compact home. Aside from including the couple’s preferences, she had additional storage options installed and made sure to install pieces that are purposeful and space-saving as well. She also included travel-inspired details and suggested more affordable design elements and pieces to the couple.

If there’s one important thing that the man of the house learned, it’s to spend wisely. “You want to make sure that you will enjoy the place. Siyempre sometimes we would ask Van kung wala na bang mas mura. Pero kung ano talaga yung gusto mo, you should go for it.” And wouldn’t it be nice to come home to a space that you know you wholeheartedly love?
