Some may think it’s quite easy to furnish and decorate a bigger space, but in reality, it’s the opposite. Sticking to the basics may leave you with a home that’s seem empty and plain, while going all out with the furniture may result in a space that feels cramped. In this home, the owners enjoy plenty of floor space in the living area. However, it lacks character and there’s a lot that can be done to maximize it.

To transform the space, interior designers Erika Uichanco and Darwin Ignacio worked with a blue-and-gray color palette. Aside from serving as the perfect backdrop for the pieces, it also lends a calming, hotel-like feel the owners wanted. Completing the new and improved look are simple accessories, pretty accent walls, and different must-haves that help create extra functional nooks within the area. After the makeover, the owners were more than pleased with the bright and Pinterest-worthy living room.
