Find great decorating tips in this family home in Caloocan City
It's no wonder that the house of interior designer Brill Sanchez Flores was chosen to be on the cover of our May 2015 issue. The multi-storey penthouse is equal parts stylish and comfortable — beautiful enough to grace the pages of a design magazine and cozy enough for anyone to actually want to come home to it every night!
If you love the charming rustic-industrial style of this interior designer's house as much as we do, here are five tips and tricks that you should try:
If you don't have a green thumb or space for your own garden, you may want to attach a strip or two of faux leaves to one of your walls.
RL Tip: You can purchase faux leaves from leading hardware stores. Just remember to choose a roll that looks as close to the real thing as possible.
We have more good news for homeowners who cannot take care of plants or those who do not have enough room for a garden! You can invest in a few air plants for your own personal space. As the name would suggest, air plants don't need soil to survive. They simply need a few hours in the sun and a few drops of water everyday.
Apart from being easy to grow and maintain, air plants are also great because they look so cool and unique. Just like this homeowner, you can keep yours in glass bowls hanging from the bottom of a wooden shelf.
If you are drawn to this interior designer's rustic industrial home, you should also consider using wood, metal, and woven materials.
For this living area, the interior designer picked out a metal coffee table, a fully upholstered sofa, a woven loveseat, and a wooden chest or baul.
Your sofa should never be left bare and empty! Spruce the seat up with a woven blanket or a faux fur throw alongside throw pillows with different colors and patterns.
Still looking for the perfect table to rest your flat-screen TV on? You may want to use a metal cabinet! Apart from looking sleek and streamlined, a piece like this one can also be used to hide your entertainment system and other precious belongings.
