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 best friends Roman and Steffan! Since they both love Italy, they decided to share a home that would highlight the glory of Italian Renaissance. Here are the 4 things that we appreciated in this particular space:

The Coffered Ceiling

For a dramatic look, graduating students Aira Barba, Maria Isabela Blanco, Beatrice Villaflor, and Hannah Lacanilao opted for a coffered ceiling. This kind of ceiling is embellished with square or rectangular tiles that help create decorative grid patterns.

The Regal Entrances

Curved arches, black columns, and soft drapes separate the different areas of the home. These glamorous details look especially sophisticated in this small area.

The Leonardo da Vinci-Inspired Murals

The sliding doors that lead to the bathroom are adorned with hand-painted murals by artist Alfred Galvez. For these artworks, the artist drew inspiration from the sketches of Leonardo da Vinci. 

The Elegant Bathroom

Since the bathroom has the same black and gold color scheme as the rest of the 24sqm unit, it looks just as luxurious. We love the crystal chandelier and the bathroom counter with gold trimmings. 

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