Interior designer Evangeline Lim was presented with a challenge: to work with a “no color palette” for her client’s townhouse. “I wanted something luxe, clean, elegant, but definitely not over the top,” says the homeowner.

The owner took inspiration from boutique hotels, which both she and her husband love to frequent. “Gusto ko ng hotel feel for the house, especially for the bedroom. White and clean, but I wanted to add a luxe feel. Pag luxe, it’s usually stiff, but I wanted it to be comfortable and homey,” she says. “The owner knew what she wanted. She gave me pegs, we sourced together, and everything was approved by her,” Evangeline recalls. It helped that both designer and client were on the same page during the whole design process.

Evangeline says she found the size of the house “not too big,” so she didn’t want to do anything that would enhance the “smallness of the space.”  Using light colors opened it up, but extra steps were taken to divide the townhouse unit accordingly. They had the all-white, clean look down pat, right down to the dramatic pieces and richly textured accessories. Their shopping itinerary included trips to Harver Hill, Pottery Barn, and West Elm, among others. Gold, being the mark of luxury and elegance, was not surprisingly the accent color of choice for the all-neutral space.

In the future, Evangeline says the homeowner has the option to fix the balcony and convert an extra bedroom into a guest room. There’s also another room that can be into a walk-in closet, the prospect of which excites the lady of the house. But in the meantime, the lady of the house could enjoy the cozy but sophisticated beauty of her hotel-like home.
