Peacock Colors for a Young Couple’s One-bedroom Condo
In this high-rise unit in the city, modern furniture pieces are paired with interesting patterns
How can you update a home filled with simple and basic furniture pieces? Interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino recommends rich colors and graphic prints. She followed her own advice in designing this one-bedroom unit for a married couple in their thirties. While the condo is furnished with plain items, Hannah mixed things up with décor pieces in bright orange, vibrant blue, and other peacock-inspired shades. She also used artwork, pillows, rugs, and other details with eye-catching patterns.
Unlike most homes that open with a living room, guests are welcomed into this unit with a dining area. Although the dining and living areas have different patterns, the elements are tied together by neutral shades. Using the same colors helps create a consistent look.
Since the condo is so small, Hannah chose a four-seater round table that doesn’t take up too much space.
The dining table is topped with blue-and-white paisley-print table cloth and decorative pieces that have an exotic feel.
The giraffe figures add a whimsical touch to the dining table for four.
To make the most of the limited unit, Hannah also decorated the space between the dining and living areas. A framed peacock wall art hangs over a black console table.
The table is topped with books, a pair of mice figurines that can be used as paperweights, a chess set, and orange and blue décor.
The living area is furnished with a dark gray loveseat, an orange accent chair, and a wooden baul used as a coffee table.
The sofa is made inviting with printed throw pillows. You may use different patterns for an unexpected look.
The living area corner features a striking orange chair, a unique black floor lamp, a framed tribal-print fabric, and affordable art from Robinsons Department Store.
The bedroom is filled with chic details like modern wall art, printed curtains, and black-and-white chevron-printed floor rug.
A black-and-white nesting table from L’Indochine is used as a bedside table. To keep the magazines organized, a woven basket is placed underneath.
