Modern Asian Look for a 24sqm Unit in Makati
The Philippine School of Interior Design graduating students create a beautiful first home for a newlywed couple
What can you do with a 24sqm home? The 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 for a newly married couple who wanted a home inspired by the places that they went to during their honeymoon in Thailand. Here are the 5 things that we noticed first in this small space.
The Style influenced by Bangkok and Phuket
Graduating students Hazel Tan, Toxi Ampatua, Janine Caballeros, Sheryl Tan, and Janille Reboledo designed a space that would remind the homeowners of their recent trip to Thailand.
Since the husband enjoyed Bangkok and the wife cherished Phuket, the students brought the best of both places together — the modern feel of the city and the rustic charm of the beach.
The Well-Planned Space
As soon as we saw this home, we couldn't believe that it only measured 24 square meters! The students carefully planned the space so that it would look bigger than it really is. The abundance of lights and the relaxing color scheme also make the home seem open and airy.
The Rope-Covered Ceiling Treatment and Divider
If you want to decorate your small home without making the space seem too cramped, you may want to focus on the ceiling and the walls.
For this living area, the students chose a unique ceiling treatment and divider defined by cream-colored ropes.
The Fully Equipped Kitchen
Who says that you can't have a working kitchen area in a compact home? The students set aside enough space for the homeowners to comfortably prepare and enjoy their meals.
The All-White Bathroom and Service Area
Some design guidelines have stood the test of the time because they always seem to work. The same can be said about using white in a tiny area.
If you are in doubt about what wall and floor tiles to use in a small bathroom, you may want to stick to white. You can bring in color through bathroom organizers and accessories.
Studio 24 will run from October 3 to 31, 2015 at the Ronac Lifestyle Center, Paseo de Magallanes, Makati City. Admission is free.
