36sqm Sweet and Girly Studio In this issue, interior designer Van Acuna furnished a living area with a bespoke tufted sofa from Heima. Instead of flanking it with lamps on side tables, Van installed wall sconces from Keystone Lamps (1008-B, Pasay Road, Makati City, tel. [02] 844-1793) to free up floor space.
75sqm Loft-type Condo Another featured space is a living room in a loft-type condo. The area is made interesting with an art wall, consisting of souvenirs from her travels to Cambodia, Nepal, and India.
Decor Ideas In the Decor Ideas section, we even give you tips and tricks on how to make budget-friendly home decor and accessories look chic and elegant.
Organizing Tips In the Organizing section, we have tips on how to host the perfect garage sale! Remember: selling your pre-loved things can help lessen the clutter in your home!
