Around a year ago, the owners of this three-storey townhouse in Quezon City were excited about two things: moving into their brand new house and having their second child after ten years of waiting! What could be better than living in your dream home with your first-born daughter and the baby that you have been patiently waiting for?

In order to create a beautiful home that is also ideal for a couple and their children, interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy stepped in! Jean chose modern contemporary elements that are both stylish and comfortable.

Dining Area

Since the ground floor of this three-storey townhouse has limited space, there is no living area! There is only a dining area connected to the open kitchen.

Jean complemented the high ceiling with an industrial drop light, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an accent wall covered with mirrors. The space is furnished with an elegant black sofa and a wooden dining table.


The modern-contemporary-meets-industrial style can also be appreciated in the open kitchen! For a rustic feel, there are wooden panels on the wall, cabinets, kitchen island, and bar stools. Wrought-iron, steel, and other metallic elements complete this space. 

Daughter's Bedroom

The daughter's bedroom has a more modern contemporary look! According to the homeowners, their ten-year-old daughter chose the colors that they could use for her own private sanctuary. 

One of the young girl's favorite spots in this personal space is the cozy corner by the window. The white chair topped with a rabbit pillow rests on a chevron-print area rug.

Daughter's Bedroom

The daughter's bedroom is furnished with a two-poster bed with unique bedposts. These white bedposts are highlighted with a string of blue paper lanterns

Study Table

Across the bed is a blue dresser for the daughter's clothes and a study table paired with a gray-and-pink upholstered chair.

Vanity Table

The whitewashed vanity table with a three-way mirror is the ideal addition to the daughter's bedroom. Check out the rose-shaped handles on the drawers.

Daughter's Bathroom

The daughter also has her own bathroom! To make your own standard space feel more age-appropriate, you can use a candy-colored bath mat and fill it with kiddie bath products.

Son's Bedroom

Now that their daughter is ten years old, the owners were more than happy to welcome their baby son. The couple invested in a multipurpose crib for their new bundle of joy's nursery. The crib can be used as an infant's crib, a toddler's crib, or even a kiddie bed.

To make nursing, playing, and bonding more comfortable, the space is completed with an upholstered armchair and ottoman.

Son's Bedroom

The couple ordered special wooden buntings that spell out their son's name. This is a rustic and charming touch in the bedroom. 

Son's Bedroom

On the other side of the bedroom is a whitewashed changing table with metal cabinet pulls. Above the piece is something that expresses what the couple feels for their three-month-old son: "You are a wish come true."

Master Bedroom

In line with the modern-meets-industrial feel of the family home, the master bedroom is filled with cool gray hues that are often seen in industrial-style spaces. For a sophisticated vibe, the space is completed with a winged headboard, soft bed linen, and sheer curtains.

Master Bathroom and Walk-in Closet

What could feel more indulgent and luxurious than a master bathroom and walk-in closet? A connected space like this could be a practical option for any couple.

For a cohesive look, Jean chose bath tiles and wallpaper that have similar colors and prints. 

Entertainment Room

Just like the dining area and kitchen on the ground floor of the home, the entertainment room has an industrial-inspired style. The dark hues, brick wall, and wooden table and flooring materials lend a distinguished industrial look to the shared space.
