What can you do with a 24sqm homeThe Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) graduating students explore the possibilities through Studio 24, an interior design exhibit with 24 different units that measure 24 square meters each.

One of the 24 spaces is a studio unit for two Filipino-Americans who wanted a home away from home. Here are the 4 things that you just might want to have in your own personal space:

The Use of Different Materials

Graduating students Eileen Pepino, Sushmita Lai, Kathleen Dimapilis, and Justinne Melliza used different materials to create a unique home.

For a warm and cozy feel, the modern contemporary space is filled with wood, metal, and leather details.

The Mini Living Area

No space for an actual living area? You can also furnish an empty corner with a pair of fully upholstered chairs, a statement floor lamp, and a small side table.  

The Bar Area

We also noticed the kitchen island that can be used for preparing food, having meals, and even enjoying a drink or two. The multipurpose space is spruced up with a trio of chrome pendant lamps.

The Bed and Bath Areas

The minimalist feel, soothing colors, and raw finishes add character to the bed and bath areas. 

Studio 24 will run from October 3 to 31, 2015 at the Ronac Lifestyle Center, Paseo de Magallanes, Makati City. Admission is free.
