After graduating from the University of Santo Tomas in 2012, Real Living Style Spotter and interior designer Nikki Audine passed the Interior Designer Licensure Exam in 2013. She worked at Heima Home and Lifestyle for two years before becoming a freelance interior designer. Nikki has done visual merchandising, interior branding, and event styling, to name a few. In a makeover feature published in Real Living Magazine in 2017, the designer shared that she makes it a point to create custom-made furniture for clients, too. Why the need for customized pieces? Nikki has done quite a number of amazing small spaces and they are all functional. Can you imagine seeing a loft in a 21sqm condo unit? It seems impossible, but Nikki made it happen.

Most of her featured projects on the website showcase small spaces transformed into airy, welcoming homes. With proper space planning, clever use of colors, and by incorporating smart storage nooks, Nikki was able to maximize limited floor areas and give the owners a home where they can relax and invite friends over. To be able to transform these compact units, the designer values sticking to a concept, setting a budget, and having an open communication with the owners as these factors contribute to a successful renovation project.
