What’s the secret behind a successful dream home? Aside from having a theme in mind, some pegs, and the budget, it all boils down to finding a trusted partner who can help bring it all together and deliver the space you’ve always wanted. For the owners of this 72sqm, three-storey townhouse in Quezon City, stumbling upon the past projects of interior designer Anla Li-Tan online proved to be a blessing. “We found the projects so impressive, to the point that we’d like her to design our dream home. Luckily, we got in touch [with her] easily, set a site walk-through, and scheduled the first meeting,” shares the man of the house.

Given the owners’ trust and confidence, Anla incorporated the black-and-white theme the husband wanted and the pieces the lady of the house longed for. However, challenges became inevitable, too. With only 24sqm per floor, Anla had to come up with a clever layout, a few design adjustments, and a bunch of storage options. “When designing, you need to take risks and [trust your] gut feeling,” says the designer.

From the master bedroom to the kids’ rooms—it’s easy to see the thought and effort put into maximizing the space. After a four month renovation period, the family is more than ready to move in. “When we saw our newly designed home, we really fell in love with it. It looks so elegant and very relaxing to live in. It exceeded our expectations,” says the owner.
