As guests step inside this modern country-style house, the first impression they will likely get is how clear its vision is. The interiors breathe, and various country-style elements liven up and give character to each area.

Ironically, this clarity of vision can be credited to the compromises made by the husband and wife regarding the look of the house. The wife wanted a country-style aesthetic, while the husband preferred an airy space with less clutter. The task of marrying these two visions fell on the hands of interior designers Tala Singson and Dagny Madamba, who had to sort through tons of pegs of country-style homes shown to them by the wife. "It helped that we were involved from the start," says Tala. "We were able to refine our clients' vision, and plan the spaces properly."

The family used to live in a cramped townhouse that they "outgrew," so the 300sqm lot proved to be a godsend. The new house has to accommodate the family of four and their two maids. To facilitate free-flowing movement inside the house and encourage interaction between family members, an open layout was implemented, leading to spacious interiors that benefit from natural light, thanks to wide windows and sliding doors.

The wife knew what she wanted for the house, even details such as tile designs and color choices, which proved to be both helpful and challenging. "It's always challenging to find the perfect items for every home, especially if we don't want to compromise quality and style," says Dagny. "We were fortunate enough to have a homeowner who was very hands-on and knew the style she wanted from the get-go."

The result is a house that knows what it is and shines in its subtleties. With architectural elements such as barn doors, shiplap walls, and ceiling trusses complementing the understated yet elegant interior design, the house is everything the owners had hoped for, and more.
