For the owners of this unit, change was something they both had to embrace. Initially, they didn’t think of having kids right after getting married, only to find out they were pregnant six months later. After their baby arrived, their old one-bedroom unit suddenly became small for their needs, hence the need to move to a new space.

They made the big move to this three-bedroom, 87sqm condo unit in Taguig, with views from two balconies. They asked the condo developer to turn the barest unit over to allow them to build everything from scratch. Apart from spending lots of time on Pinterest for home design inspiration, they sought the help of interior designer Paula de Guzman.

Collaborating with Paula for the look of their home proved to be a wise decision, as it helped them figure out the styles they wanted the most—touches of rustic and industrial in particular. The couple sourced for the furniture pieces and accessories, keeping in mind their budget. In fact, no item went beyond P15,000! The homeowners’ determination to stick to their budget was impressive; having went to great lengths to do it. “I would talk to at least ten suppliers just to get the best price!” the woman of the house shares.

Working with an interior designer also paved the way for some experimentation, especially with color. The couple was leaning toward dark shades, but working with brighter colors would result into a family home that’s maaliwalas and inviting.

Living Area

The living area is as cozy as it gets, with the space as the preferred hangout of husband and wife, as well as their friends when they come over.

Living Area

Instead of going for the usual brick wall, the owners decided to go for black bricks, inspired by styles that they’ve seen abroad. Initially, the couple wanted to cover only a small part, but Paula suggested extending the bricks, turning it into an accent wall. 

Dining Area

Mixing and matching styles make for an eclectic touch, as evidenced by this unusual pairing of Windsor chairs and a wooden bench flanking the dining table.

Kitchen

The bar counter can serve as a breakfast nook or a preparation area for cooking meals. The backsplash begs to differ from the usual—instead of installing the subway tiles horizontally, they were laid vertically.

Kitchen

There’s nothing like a smiling spatula to brighten the couple’s day—a perfect item to have for the woman of the house who enjoys cooking.

Decor Detail

Shot glasses are the couple’s choice of souvenirs when they travel.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom leans more on rustic than industrial, save for the chair in the corner. The walls are washed in a calming shade of green—a color that the woman of the house didn't like. Paula managed to convince her to steer away from dark colors for the bedroom.

Decor Detail

These vintage keys are in keeping with the rustic theme of the home.

Bathroom

The industrial vibe is achieved in the bathroom with clean, white subway tiles and a glass door with an unconventional sliding mechanism.
