A home should be a celebration of yourself and the things that matter the most to you. In order to follow this philosophy and create a space that would celebrate his passions, Dr. Bien Po turned his two-bedroom condo into a “mini-gallery.” Aside from being stylish and comfortable, he knew that the bachelor pad should reflect his love for travel, photography, graphic design, and even interior design.

Bien explains that his bachelor pad makeover was inspired by a Norway trip that made him realize how simple, practical, and beautiful Scandinavian design is. While finding furniture and furnishings was the most difficult part of the six-month decorating process, the challenge forced him to be creative. He made lamps out of Lego pieces and camera tripods and adorned walls with photographs that he has taken. He also designed a black and white poster of all of the destinations that he has been to.
