Interior designer Gelo del Mundo created the ideal two-bedroom home for a young family in Mandaluyong. The 74sqm unit has a modern contemporary style, a muted color palette, and customized details handpicked by the designer and the owners.

What we loved the most about this condo in the city are the versatile design elements that can fit in practically every home! Here are 5 interesting details that every homeowner should consider for his or her own space:

The child-friendly living area

Many living areas are furnished with glass-top coffee tables and furniture pieces with sharp edges. However, for this home, interior designer Gelo del Mundo chose a wooden table with a curved top and fully upholstered seats.

The kiddie artworks displayed in the dining area

The wall beside the dining table has a niche perfect for displaying a framed painting. The homeowners decided to fill this niche with family photos and their son's artworks.

The neutral shades in the bedroom

If you would like to create a soothing bedroom, you should pair cool grays with warm browns. Use these colors for your walls, furniture, and accessories

The printed throw pillows on the bed

A few throw pillows can make your bed seem even more inviting and comfortable. For an unexpected look, choose modern geometric prints for your throw pillows.

Create a unique headboard

Instead of a traditional headboard, Gelo chose a panel that could be used to organize children's books.

If you are also looking for a way to spruce up your own bed, you can hang up artworks or mount an oversized world map.
