Working on a project with barely any restrictions or impossible client demands is a dream for most interior designers and stylists—and interior stylist Jerome Sauco may very well be lucky to work with a client who gives him freedom to conceptualize a theme for this 150sqm, three-storey home in Taguig. Jerome, who was previously commissioned by the family on two design projects in the past, only requested for one thing—“a home that’s easy to clean.” After two months, he successfully came up with bright and roomy interiors taking after a contemporary Asian theme, plus, a little inspiration from the 1970s.

This Taguig home is strategically located near a hospital, given that the couple’s elderly parents make regularly visits. That being said, Jerome also had to take their needs into account, so he made it a point to add plants and flowers wherever possible.

The “Good morning!” feel, as the interior stylist puts it, was achieved by going for minimal clutter, choosing an accent color and sticking with it (by applying it sparingly and consistently throughout all areas), and carefully selecting design elements for a cohesive and spacious look. This home only goes to show that a clear vision and calculated restraint are vital in designing a warm and inviting space that all members of the family will appreciate and find comfort in.
