A 22sqm Unit for an Art Director in Mandaluyong
Misty Floro and Pai Edles of Morfosis Design chose a modern industrial look for this small space
If you live in a small home or you simply want to make your home seem more spacious, you may want to use white or beige walls. We often recommend these light colors because they can help create the illusion of a bright and airy space.
However, this does not mean that you should never have dark walls! You can still choose rich purple, charcoal gray, or even a midnight black, for as long as you carefully consider the rest of the pieces in the room.
In the case of this 22sqm unit in Mandaluyong, Misty Floro and Pai Edles of Morfosis Design chose a striking black hue for the walls: Vinyl Night from Boysen. They furnished the space with only a few furniture and accessories so as not to make the place feel too crowded.
This space was designed as part of this year’s Real Living Space at the Avida Towers Centera showroom in Mandaluyong. To learn more about Real Living’s signature event, visit realliving.com.ph/rlspace.
Do you live in a rented condo? Instead of drilling holes or hammering nails in your walls, you can choose a unique panel for your foyer! A panel leaning against the wall can easily spruce up your space.
In this case, Misty and Pai used a black pegboard that could be used to hold photos, plants, and other decor.
A few steps from the foyer is the entertainment wall that faces the living and sleeping area. Beneath the deer head and the flat-screen TV is a black table that can be used as a dining table.
This modern version of a classic animal head is a quirky addition to this bachelor pad.
Although the 22sqm unit has stark black walls, it still looks fairly open and spacious because of the clean-lined furniture.
Illuminating the space is a lighting fixture from Mandaue Foam. The plain light bulbs were replaced with Edison light bulbs from Match Contract Furniture.
The four-poster bed helps separate the bed from the rest of the areas! The neon pink hue also looks especially stunning in a nearly all-black space.
Misty and Pai created the four-poster bed out of materials from a junk shop.
Misty and Pai retained the original materials and fixtures in the kitchen. They spruced up the standard-issue kitchen with a few decorative touches.
To create a place for unwinding and entertaining, the design team put up a mini bar area.
