A Bake Shop Owner's Townhouse with Modern Country Style
Interior designer Wilan Dayrit creates a picture-perfect home for the owner of Larcy's Cupcakery and Cafe
Every homeowner knows that moving into another place can be a stressful ordeal! First of all, you must find the right new home for you and your family. You must also examine everything you own, let go of things that you no longer need, and pack the items to keep in an odd assortment of bags, boxes, and baskets. Once you're done, you have to find a way to bring your belongings from the old place to the new one — a task that's simply easier said than done.
However, for Larcy's Cupcakery and Cafe owner Larcy Diaz and her two children, moving into a new split-level house turned out to be a fun and exciting thing! After all, who wouldn't want to come home to this cozy and comfortable space designed by interior designer Wilan Dayrit? The newly renovated townhouse is defined by the modern-country-industrial style and the light neutral color palette.

This inviting space is furnished with a brown sofa, a wooden coffee table, and a gray area rug with an interesting pattern. As a fitting final touch, the area is illuminated with a modern light with an industrial feel.
The homeowner's 21-year-old daughter Micaela requested for a white brick wall for the living area. Wilan adorned the rustic-industrial surface with family photos and interesting artworks.
To create a tranquil and peaceful space, Wilan chose a white daybed and white side table for this particular corner. The white furniture and decor can make the homeowner and her family feel even more calm and relaxed.
Since the homeowner owns a cupcakery and cafe, Wilan wanted to give her a spacious kitchen that she could feel comfortable and productive in.
In order to do this, he renovated the space that was supposed to be a dining area into a kitchen that every chef, baker, or food enthusiast would love to have! He also placed built-in wall niches for small appliances like mixers and blenders.
Three metal bar stools facing the breakfast nook add a cool touch to the country-inspired kitchen.
The dining area is furnished with industrial droplights from Azcor and a round table surrounded by white dining chairs.
The dining table is topped with dainty tea cups and mason jars used as flower vases.
How can you make the most of a small dining area? You can consider putting up a wall of shelves and cabinets! Shelves and cabinets can be used to store dining essentials and display your favorite things.
