For busy professionals, home is the only place that offers a satisfying retreat after a long, hard day at work. For marketing manager Mye this wasn’t always the case while renting a bland pad for five years. Unsatisfied with her home, Mye immediately sought to renovate her place after finally buying it for herself. With the help of interior designer Vivian Gacad, Mye was able to get the escape she finally wanted.

Given the 42sqm space, Vivian came up with a design that was modern, stylish but also very functional. With plenty of hidden storage compartments and a well-thought-out design, Mye can come home to a practical but fashionable home with all her needs and wants. Not to mention, the space is comfortable and safe for her three furry companions, Sergeant, Pepper, and Sassy. Before the renovation, Mye wished to have a hotel escape to come home to. Now, she has exactly that: a home with a modern, boutique hotel charm with all her personal touches and quirks.
