A Fashion Editor’s Stylish One-Bedroom Condo
Bright colors and bold patterns make this single lady’s high-rise haven stand out
Many modern homes are defined by neutral shades and basic prints. While these design choices are timeless, they can also seem boring. To create a more refreshing look in this fashion editor’s one-bedroom condo in Quezon City, interior designers John Vigilia and Ayet San Jose-Aniag chose playful hues, patterns, and textures. With the statement furniture pieces and unique home décor in the space, the unit is now every bit as bold, fierce and fabulous as the stylish homeowner.
Guests are greeted with a brave combination of colors and patterns. Pops of green, red, and blue are paired with feminine florals and modern graphic prints.
The plain white wall is spruced up with a trio of colorful paintings. Placed beneath it is a wooden sofa with solihiya detail. To update the look of this traditional Filipino seat, a shag throw is draped over one arm. It is also topped with five mismatched pillows. A white oval coffee table and geometric-print floor rug complete the eclectic look.
Instead of a dining set-up, interior designer Johnny Vigilia created a cozy breakfast nook by the window –this is a better fit for the small space. A round table is flanked by red and pink chairs with floral patterns.
The bedroom is just as bright and colorful as the living room. In decorating the space, interior designer Ayet San Jose-Aniag explains that she drew inspiration from Pinterest, a website filled with creative DIY ideas for the home.
The word “dream” is spelled out above the bed’s headboard with plain paper letters. This is a simple but charming touch. The bed itself is covered with pillows that have youthful colors and prints. Bed trays are topped with decorative blooms, a single miniature lantern, and a couple of pens.
Instead of painting the wall or hanging artwork, Ayet used colorful strips of paper and a white divider. This is a simple and affordable way to adorn a plain surface in the bedroom.
The divider is paired with a pink side table topped with a white lamp and a white lantern used as a pen holder. The floor is covered with faux topiaries and birdcages.
The white divider with intricate detail is personalized with inspiring prints attached with black bull clips. The homeowner can also put up her own photos and other memorabilia.
