Interior designer Van Acuna-Solana wanted to make this 49sqm condo in Manila into the perfect second home for a Cebu-based family. In order to do that, she drew inspiration from the homeowners' love of the ocean. She started with a color scheme of blue, white, and wooden tones then completed the space with rustic and charming furniture and accessories.
