The Angeles family moved into their second home in Antipolo after realizing they needed more living space. Although it has a bigger space at 210sqm, the two-storey house felt cramped for a brood of their size. Faced with the challenge, the family sought the expertise of interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino to help them design a home that was spacious, modern, and eye-catching.

The family and the designer agreed on a minimalist scheme to open up the space. Features like vaulted ceilings and a neutral color palette worked together to give the home a light, airy feel. To break the frigidness of a monotonous theme, a number of decorative pieces and personal touches like plants and photographs were added. The result? A home that not only maximizes space but is cozy for a family of six as well.
