Beach-inspired Colors for a 44sqm Condo in Quezon City
Interior designers Jamine Gabriel, Mark Peter Perez, and Melwyn Arrubio chose a relaxing staycation feel for a couple's one-bedroom haven
Homeowners Ernesto and Maria Villar originally planned to furnish and decorate this one-bedroom condo so that they could rent it out. However, the couple decided to keep the 44sqm unit once they saw the work of interior designers Jamine Gabriel, Mark Peter Perez, and Melwyn Arrubio of Boxform Interior Designs.
The couple's new second home is now defined by a contemporary style and beach-inspired colors. The modern design elements come in soothing shades of white, brown, and blue.
Since windows can bring in natural light and a refreshing breeze, it can make a tiny area appear more spacious! If you can't put up more windows, you can try beach-inspired colors like white, brown, and blue. You can also replace dull lights with bright lights to better illuminate the space.
The living area is furnished with a three-seater sofa from Our Home.
The sofa is made more comfortable with white, brown, and blue throw pillows from Our Home.
The interior designers completed the living area with a customized media wall. The wall is used as a focal point and keeps the flat-screen TV and other entertainment essentials organized.
The media wall is also used to store and display the couple's personal belongings.
Since the one-bedroom unit measures only 44sqm, it was important to make the most of a limited space. In order to open up the area, the interior designers installed a full-length mirror.
The place is furnished with a dining set from Shell Canvas and Eames-inspired chairs from Our Home. The wall art and decorative pieces are from the homeowners' personal collection.
The interior designers reveal that the dinnerware on the table also belong to the homeowners. The old table pieces are paired with new wooden candle holders from Our Home.
If you would also like a calming beach-inspired look in your home, you should use light-hued wooden pieces and intricately woven finds.
For example, this dining area is illuminated with a woven droplight.
What can you do with a small bedroom? Use lights, built-in furniture, and multipurpose pieces!
First of all, general and task lighting can make the area seem larger than it really is. On the other hand, wall-mounted furniture like shelves and desks will also help you save on space. Finally, a custom-built bed with a pull-out mattress is the perfect choice for any small bedroom.
One of the bedroom walls is spruced up with framed paintings from Our Home.
The built-in desk is complemented with a modern swivel chair with white molded plastic and light-colored wood.
The simple bathroom is updated with a useful towel rack and practical glass shelves. In order to personalize the plain space, the interior designers filled it with charming sea shell art and decor.
