After a long day in the concrete jungle, a haven with white walls and furniture is a soothing sight to behold. In this two-bedroom space owned and designed by Daki Fernando, the immaculate shade is not just relaxing – it also creates the perfect backdrop for colorful artwork and home accessories. The Fine Arts professor at the University of the Philippines drew inspiration from the 1930s art galleries that were the first spaces to have white walls.

Armed only with his creativity, imagination, and a desire to have a beautiful home, Daki bravely took on the renovation of his two-bedroom condo. The walls of the third bedroom were torn down to expand the dining area. The kitchen ceiling was opened up so that they could have enough space for their state-of-the-art cooking equipment. In the living and dining area, walls were smoothened out and the marble flooring was replaced with legally-acquired Narra wood.
