It's not everyday that you see a home as beautiful as this two-bedroom condo designed by interior designer Wilmer Lopez! It's the kind of place that owners would love to come home to and never want to leave; a place that makes guests want to whip out their phones and take a few pictures. 

If you would also like a cozy and comfortable haven worth posting about on Instagram or if you simply want to improve your personal space, here are our decorating ideas inspired by this 84sqm unit:

Opt for a modern industrial look

If you are just about to build or renovate your home, you may want to consider a modern industrial style! Modern industrial style is great because it looks cool and stylish. More importantly, bare concrete and simple wood can be affordable and easy-to-maintain.

Pick quirky touches

For a more interesting home, you may also want to choose a few interesting pieces. You can look for unique furniture and decor at thrift shops, garage sales, and secondhand stores. 

RL Tip: You can order a customized Choc Nut pillow from Space Encounters! Space Encounters is located at Unit B, Mezzanine Level, Padilla Building,, F. Ortigas Jr. Rd, Ortigas Center, Pasig. You may also call them at (02) 655-6806.

Choose cool colors

You can also pick furniture, furnishings, and decor with cool hues like gray, blue, and yellow!

For example, you can repaint your bed frame and study table. You can even replace your pillow cases and bed sheets or bring in a new side chair or table lamp.

Be more adventurous

This two-bedroom unit also reminded us that we can always try something different! For example, you can select a dark color for one of your bedroom walls. You can even adorn your bedside table with a framed print of Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell’s Tomato Soup piece.

Select a metal sink

Instead of a plain and boring sink, you can look for something else. Consider a metal basin or a handpainted ceramic lavatory.

RL Tip: You can find one-of-a-kind sinks at leading home depots!
