For her 36sqm condo, the Davao-based homeowner initially wanted a pink-and-black color scheme. However, interior designer Van Acuna-Solana thought that it may be too strong and striking. To tone it down a bit, she suggested pairing pink with gray instead. Van complemented the pink-and-gray palette with charming Parisian touches for a chic and elegant feel.
