Comic Book-Inspired Style for a 24sqm Unit in Makati

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 this studio unit meant for a features editor who is a fan of Archie comics! Here are the five things that we love best about this particular room:

The Bright Colors

Since the client is an Archie fan, graduating students Shane Reyes, Janna Saavedra, Samantha Maguinao, Maita Nonato, and Cheyser Pedregosa drew inspiration from the colors often seen in good ol' Riverdale.

The studio unit is filled with vibrantly hued details like the blue-and-white bed, red telephone booth, green-and-white kitchen, floor with a gometric black-and-white pattern, and a rainbow-colored divider.

The Telephone Booth

The bathroom door is disguised as a classic telephone booth! The full-length mirror can actually be pulled out to reveal a secret closet.

The L-shaped Kitchen and Dining Area

To make the most of a limited space, the students created an L-shaped kitchen and dining area! A combined space allows the homeowner to prepare and enjoy meals in the same spot. 

The Veronica Mural and the Campbell's Soup Table

The living area is made more interesting with a charming Veronica portrait painted by artist Alfred Galvez.

The cozy nook is furnished with a fully upholstered bench leaning against a rainbow-colored divider. In the middle of the space is a Campbell's Soup coffee table inspired by the work of Pop Art icon Andy Warhol.

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