Homeowner Cora dreamed of having a stylish city home after acquiring her 38sqm studio unit. But after a contractor installed dark wood panels, bulky shelving, and stark, white lighting, all she got was a masculine, dark, and cramped space not befitting a passionate and lively career woman as herself. Nearing the end of her rope, Cora sought the help of art gallery owner and creative consultant Albert Avellana to help her with her space.

After some deliberation, Albert and Cora agreed on making the space more open and functional for everyday living. The bulky shelving was removed to allow the space to breathe, furniture with curved lines were added to soften the space, and calming shades of green were mixed in with the browns. A few sprinkles of chic decorative pieces make the unit more homey. This resulted in an elegant, feminine home that Cora can relax and unwind in after a hard day’s work.
