For homeowners that have to live alone, a condo unit could be the perfect choice. It is an ideal option because you can feel safe and secure and it can be easier to maintain and clean.

In the case of homeowner Joji Ledesma-Pineda, she decided to stay in this two-bedroom unit on her own because her children already work abroad. To make her feel more relaxed and comfortable, she hired interior designer Diana Zamora to bring in vibrant shades, interesting prints, and mid-century modern pieces.

If you would also like to improve the home that you live in on your own or with your family, you may want to check out these design ideas inspired by Joji's 75sqm condo:

Play with patterns

You can start by experimenting with different patterns! For your living area, you can pick out a fun printed wallpaper for one of your walls. You can also pair this accent wall with a white brick wall and mismatched throw pillows.

RL Tip: You may also want to own a lot of throw pillow covers! You can change throw pillow covers to instantly update the look of your home. For example, you can use three or four red and green pillow covers for the Christmas season.

Choose matching frames

Mismatched picture frames in different colors can look gaudy and unappealing! For a chic and streamlined look, you can cover your old picture frames with black, white, or gold paint.

RL Tip: Gather the frames in one place, remove the pictures, and use black, white, or gold spraypaint!

Use a wall mirror

You can replace your Last Supper painting and oversized wooden spoon and fork in the dining area with an interesting wall mirror. A wall mirror increases the light and makes the space look so much bigger than it really is. 

RL Tip: You may even want to write on a wall mirror with colorful dry-erase markers! You can write notes, make a grocery list, or share your menu for the week.

Look for interesting shelves

We loved the ladder shelf in the bedroom! You should also search for an out-of-the-ordinary storage option to spruce up your home and keep your things organized, too.

Search for an accent chair

Apart from a rack or shelf, you may also want to look for a good chair for your bedroom. Find a fully upholstered chair with a powder blue or an emerald green shade.
