In designing this 144sqm home in a low-rise apartment building, interior designer Macie Lorenzo followed the homeowner's request for modern country elements. The space is filled with white to make it seem bigger than it already is. The white finishes and furniture pieces are paired with bright colors and playful patterns for a vibrant feel.
