Changing the look of any home can be as simple as removing some of the furniture pieces. In the case of this 82sqm condo owned by Dr. Rommel Caballes, taking away some of the existing items in the home has created a lasting impression. While the space still has the same Asian Maximalist style, it now has a more elegant and sophisticated appeal.

The cosmetic surgeon moved some of the old pieces out of the bachelor pad to make more space and breathe new life into the bachelor pad. In the living room, the tall, intimidating Buddha figures have been replaced with a large nature aquarium for a calming effect. A new color scheme of beige and white adds to the polished look of the home.
