Get the Look of a Bright, White 50sqm Condo

Create a modern feel in your personal space with these 10 furniture and accessories

Although road manager Rey Lañada's condo is only 50sqm, it looks so much bigger because it doesn't have a solid wall in the middle. He explains that he actually bought two one-bedroom units but he asked the building administration to not put up the partition. Another reason why the space looks airy? The high ceiling and the choice of furniture and accessories.

If you would like to have a similar look at home, here are 10 pieces worth a second look.
