For condo dwellers, living in a small space goes beyond turning a tiny unit into a welcoming haven with furniture and accessories. It involves having the right layout to keep the home functional, finding spots for storage, and allotting enough space for visitors. In improving this three-bedroom unit in Quezon City, interior designer Pam Tan had to deal with similar concerns. “My clients requested for a space where they can work, play, and entertain as many guests as possible given the limited space of their unit and lots of storage space without looking too obvious and boxy,” says Pam.

To achieve these goals, the designer turned to Scandinavian interiors for inspiration. “Scandinavian homes are always bright and have an almost all-white interior to compensate for the long, dark winters,” she adds. Since the owners have three kids and it’s quite difficult to maintain an all-white home in the city, Pam suggested to dress up the walls with light wooden-textured laminates, painted bricks, light-colored wallpaper, and gray skim coat finish. These elements not only made the space extra snug and comfortable, it also kept the look minimal and modern.

At the end of the renovation period, Pam and the owners were delighted with the result. They were able to keep within the budget without sacrificing aesthetics by simply prioritizing and spending wisely.
