5 Ideas to Steal from a 44sqm Condo for a Retired Couple
Let this one-bedroom unit inspire you to have a better home
What are the colors that remind you of a sunny day at the beach? Many of us think about the soothing brown hues of the sand, and the relaxing blue shades of the sky and sea.
Since brown and blue (paired with white and yellow) can make you think of an out-of-town trip, these can also be used to make you feel like you are on vacation in the comfort of your own home. Trust us on this one: this color palette can help turn an ordinary place into an ocean-inspired haven.
If you are considering this combination for your own space, you may want to check out this 44sqm condo designed by Jamine Gabriel, Mark Peter Perez, and Melwyn Arrubio of Boxform Interior Designs. Here are 5 things that we can learn from this one-bedroom unit:
Before you start constructing or renovating your home, you may want to begin with a few small pieces inspired by the beach! For example, the designers topped this three-seater sofa with blue-and-white throw pillows from Our Home.
Another thing that we liked in this living area is the row of white shelves close to the flat-screen TV. You can use wall-mounted shelves to hold framed photos alongside CDs, DVDs, and other entertainment essentials.
RL Tip: You can find different sizes and styles of shelves at major hardware stores. Some are already assembled so you can easily attach them to your chosen wall.
A beach-inspired home wouldn't be complete without wooden furniture and decor! For a more modern look, you can replace pieces made entirely out of wood with contemporary items that have wood-inspired touches.
Take inspiration from this dining table with a glass top and molded plastic chairs with wood-inspired legs.
Notice how the master bedroom has a built-in window ledge that can be used as a work desk? It can also serve as the perfect place for highlighting the homeowners' favorite things.
RL Tip: You can also install a built-in window ledge for your herbs, succulents, and cacti!
If you look closely at this photo of the bathroom, you would see that most of the bath products and organizers are in blue and green!
Choosing shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and other bath staples in similar shades is an affordable way to personalize your bathroom.
