Would You Rent This Pretty-in-Pink Studio Unit?
Dainty wallpaper and floral prints make for a picture-perfect space
Everything screams “girly!” in homeowner Trixie’s 30sqm studio unit. It’s not exactly her personality, but she likes giving her potential renters options. This is among several units she purchased as investment, renting it out for the meantime until she decides to make it her own home.
Trixie couldn’t have made a better choice for a design consultant. Grace Moslares of Magara Designs lives in a colorful and eclectic home in Antipolo, and is known for her vibrant makeover projects for Real Living.
“Gusto ni Trixie dito yung comfort as a hotel; the priority [for inabitants] is sleep,” Grace relates. Hence, the predominance of cool colors and dainty accents. If you want to get this look for your own space, take your cue from Grace’s design ideas:
Should the renter want privacy in the sleeping area, a sliding door or wooden slats divider can easily be added, says Grace. You can find a similar clear green plastic chair like this at SM Home.
The sleeping area projects a perfect picture of balance and symmetry, as the bed is flanked by matching side tables and lamps.
Dining, Living, and Sleeping Areas
Here is evidence of how a chosen wallpaper can transform a room. This particular wallpaper design from HEIM defines the feminine feel of the space.

Fun floral prints pop out against white and plain pink linen.

The bedside table is kept simple with a small vase of flowers and a small frame that will make you do as it says: smile.
Lighting is important, according to Grace, as this is what injects beauty into the space. Find a similar pendant lamp like this at Decor.
The green chair matches the green detail on the wallpaper, highlighting the pretty combination of green and pink.
