Many have the misconception that a comfortable, stylish home is hard to achieve given a limited space. But with a few, simple rules, anyone can have a beautiful flat with all the comforts of a perfect home. Interior designer George Verdolaga of the Canadian design firm Flowform Design Group, Ltd., was the design principal of this 50sqm, one-bedroom unit that proves exactly that.  

The home comes complete with a dining set, a kitchenette, a living area, and a comfortable bedroom—all designed to create a functional and visually pleasing home. One big rule that George followed was to measure everything precisely. The furniture was chosen not only because they visually coordinated with the space but also because they fit perfectly into it. No particular piece is too bulky, allowing easy movement throughout the house. Now, the house has become a perfect sanctuary for the retired Filipina homeowner—proving that a comfortable home doesn’t have to be a lavish house but can be found in a space that simply provides everything you need.
