Minimalist style can also be used to create warm and welcoming spaces. This clean but cozy feel is perfected in a home in the heart of Talisay, Negros Occidental, a short drive away from Bacolod. Owned by Tonet Ramos, his wife Ann and their two kids, the property reflects the family’s appreciation for open spaces with a distinct Asian tropical resort appeal.

In this property, minimalist design becomes inviting because of carefully selected combinations – white walls and floors matched with wooden pieces, and clean lines tempered by soft cushions and velvety textures. Most of the furniture was designed by Ann with the help of Carlo Sason, owner of Sason Shop, a Bacolod-based furniture store. Ann explains that she wanted things that are comfortable, durable, elegant, and can easily be maintained. This is in line with the style of the rest of the structure designed by Manila-based architect Ricky Solatorio who found help with project manager Ed Hechanova and contractor Meb Builders.
