Starting a family is a challenge on its own and having a space where you can build memories and dreams is quite another story. For the owners of this small unit, the first order of business would be how to achieve a seamless aesthetic given two different tastes of the husband and wife. Just like in other tiny spaces, it’s also important to keep the vibe light and airy, while still having an efficient and functional home.

To turn the once plain and crowded space into a bright and envy-worthy haven, interior designer Van Acuna-Solana stepped in. With the help of Fergill Construction, Van was able to improve the entire unit with must-haves from Avino Fine Living, Handyman, and Studio Eleven. Aside from giving it a new look, she also made sure that the owners have plenty of storage options. See the rest of the transformation below:
