Some homeowners are reluctant to hire interior designers because they are afraid that it might be too expensive. However, design professionals can actually help you cut on costs because they can recommend the best building, renovating, or decorating options for you and your family. More importantly, since interior designers know what they are doing, the end result can look so much better and can even last for a much longer time.

The homeowners of this 2-bedroom condo in Pasig are among those who understand the importance of working with an interior designer. Since their relatives have already hired interior designer Gelo del Mundo in the past, the young couple knew that Gelo could easily create a cozy, relaxing, and comfortable home.

Living Area

The living area is furnished with a matching gray sofa and loveseat. It is decorated with a wall mirror, a floor rug, and a few decorative pieces.

Gelo explains that the family's treasures can also be found in this space. The husband's toy collection, the wife's cookbooks, and their photo albums and travel souvenirs are all kept here.

Living Area Corner

The living area corner is distinguished by a painting especially made for the homeowners. Below it are the couple's wedding photos and family pictures.

There is also a Gratitude Jar filled with small strips of colored paper. The homeowner explains that she writes down the things that she is thankful for on these strips.

Dining Area

Gelo designed a niche that could be used to display a nice piece of art. However, the couple ended up using the niche as a place for photos and artworks. These personalized touches add color and character to the dining area.

The dining area is completed with a wooden table and four fully upholstered dining chairs.


Per the request of the homeowners, Gelo kept the bathroom simple and streamlined. The minimalist look makes the small area seem more spacious.

Master Bedroom

In order to make the master bedroom feel elegant and sophisticated, Gelo used classic colors and luxurious textures. He opted for neutral shades that have metallic finishes for a more interesting look. 

Master Bedroom

A closer look at the couple's bed reveals the accent wall pattern, the tufted detail of the headboard, and the neutral-hued pillows and sheets. 

Kiddie Room

Brown and blue are great colors to use in any boy's bedroom! Any design expert will tell you that the warm, earthy brown is complemented by the cool, refreshing blue. Gelo used these colors for the furniture, furnishings, and decor. 

One of the most eye-catching pieces in the bedroom is the unique Newman chair near the window.
