To give back to his parents, Danilo worked with interior designer Ina Rivera to turn the 56sqm unit into comfy, well-planned two-bedroom home

“When I acquired the property, I knew from the very beginning that it was for my parents. I just wanted it clean and spacious-looking, while being cozy at the same time,” shares Danilo. Since he works in China, he entrusted the project to interior designer Ina Rivera, giving her free rein in terms of choosing the furniture, materials, finishes, and accessories. “I just had to insist on my preferences in terms of the appliances,” he adds. For her part, Ina took into consideration Danilo’s wish to have an airy and comfortable space for his parents. “It had to be spacious to accommodate guests, have enough storage space in every area of the unit, and additional prep space without doing anything major to the existing kitchen,” explains the designer.

Ina’s involvement in the project went beyond design as she also played the role of contractor and project manager, handling the purchasing, construction, and styling of the unit prior to turnover. Though they only saw each other twice during the renovation, Danilo and Ina became friends after. “I saw the reaction of his siblings, and more importantly, his parents. It hit me then, that this home that I helped create is a tribute to the sacrifices his parents made for the entire family,” says the designer.
