What’s not to love about the Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic? It’s easy on the eyes and you have the freedom to work with neutral colors, wooden touches, and furniture pieces with clean lines. For interior designer Claudine Medina, the Scandinavian theme proved to be a perfect choice for a rental unit. “It’s modern, neutral, and not too costly to execute because there are plenty of Scandi and mid-century pieces available in the market,” she says. Since the owner of this 40sqm studio unit plans to have the space rented out, Claudine knew that there’s no room for a major construction and that the final look must be gender-neutral. “I was very inspired by modern Scandinavian apartments. They’re clean and ultra-chic. I figured this would be a perfect theme and solution for the client’s requirements for the unit,” the designer adds.

After the makeover period, the unit became a picturesque space with Pinterest-worthy nooks. Beyond creating a space that’s functional and homey, Claudine holds this achievement close to her heart as it’s her first interior design project right after graduating from the Philippine School of Interior Design. “I’m passionate about transforming spaces, so to convert an almost empty unit into a Scandinavian-inspired home on my own and with the help of trusty workers and suppliers was a dream come true for me,” she shares.
