A Luxury Apartment On The Seaside Promenade Overlooking Manila

One requirement is to make this tiny space look like a hotel—it is a must. Because our client has been to several destinations and was inspired to have the same vibe in his very own home.



Entertainment

But then the challenge was, with their fixed budget, cove light design is not applicable and it is way over their budget. Glad that we have a brainy and talented designer as she designs it on the wall where the TV is hanged. It became functional as well with lesser labor and materials that were used. It is easier because they don’t need to crawl over through the ceiling—it is quite complicated to explain further.




Living and dining area 


There’s not enough space to have a bigger dining table as much as we want. But instead, we made a console table with a dual purpose: Wining station and Breakfast nook. Originally, we placed a table in front of the sofa with stools so they could eat comfortably, though. The design was rejected, as they prefer to enjoy watching a movie with no desk positioned in front of them. In addition to that, it would be easy for them to pull the sofa bed, and set the stools aside when somebody decides to stay overnight. 

Bedroom

A special queen bed frame with single pullover is an “Ultimate dream bed”. What makes it stand out?The headboard was creatively made using a solid double walling marine plywood wrapped up with high priced wallpaper. Have you noticed where the switch of the light was on? Look at the headboard, our project supervisor managed to hide the wires and run his fingers in through the wallpapered headboard. It was freaking amazing! Which shows the real purpose and functionality of the design. Not everyone can do or think of this pattern; maybe it might be only us.



closet area


The corner that serves a laptop desk—stacking chair was purchased at Dimensione, a high end imported furniture outlet here in the Philippines. A 6ft tall swing closet, which has layers of shelves and mini cabinet inside: where the undies must be hidden or stored. An odorless non-toxic lacquer was used for the cabinet and the rest of the furniture in order for the client to move in as early as possible.



Kitchen

The kitchen was already nice enough but some accessories are needed to give color on a dull surface.


Bathroom

We tend to maximize the bathroom space by hanging a full-size upper cabinet for towels and installing a swing door cabinet for the sink. We just had to make to sure that the cabinets, which were put together, would fit in. To make it better, we fill the bathroom with decors such as plants, shelves, and decorative frames. A thick tempered glass was installed as a shower enclosure to make sure that the flooring stays dry


Can you imagine that we were able to finish this project in just 10 working days? Hoorah! Except for the fact that processing of papers that took us forever due to inconsiderate admin employees. Though it turns out pretty well and our portfolio becomes more interesting. Looking forward to writing more stories about our happy clients and the story behind the templates. Thanks for reading this design blog!

This Project Reveals An Apartment With Under 150k Budget

 Since then, our 10-day condo fit-out spreads like a wildfire and became hit to numerous clients. Some of them are willing to reserve in order to avail the discount which is valid until next year. Another happy client, a young lawyer, got her first investment in City flex condominium around two years ago located in Sta. Mesa, Quezon City. Her unit is just enough for her since she decided to live alone. Not even care how small her property is, but more importantly, the place should be livable and comfortable is what matters most to her.



Bedroom

Space is around 20 sqm, which is originally a typical size of a normal bedroom. Let’s just think that this is a “Tiny House” project and on how we were able to transform this. Based on the previous meetings, her special instruction on us is to make her a very nice bed with drawers. She’s not a fan of space saver bunk beds as seen on Pinterest or Instagram; a normal semi-double bed frame for a Professional like her suits more. Again, we used a vertical wallpaper design to make her ceiling look taller at least, which looks great as an accent. A two drawer white side table made of ducco finish paint as her extra storage for her kinds of stuff like phone, camera etc.

Have you seen that drop light (Chandelier)? Our designer says, “I chose this fixture to give emphasis to her night table. We managed to make a wall box to hide the wire that goes up to the ceiling. As you can see, I chose to use a lighter wallpaper on that certain part to highlight the hanging lamp more—To give light when she’s reading books while lying in bed”.  Certainly, the wall shades truly match with the fixture. Meanwhile, a custom-made soft and hairy carpet bought from our local supplier makes her apartment look more like a rental studio (Airbnb).




Living area

Maybe some of you are unsure if this client could possibly entertain sleepovers?  Hell yes! Wine night or group movie marathon is not impossible in her space. This sofa bed is made from highly durable uratex foam could fit up to two guests— They could sleep comfortably, for sure. The texture is very soft and sleek; in which you’d rather sleep there, maybe.  The tufted buttons were based on the country style design theme.




 Dining area


Not to mention her space saver dining table that could fit perfectly with two wonderful people. This design is enough for people who go solo in their lives. What makes this design awesome? You may hide the stools under after use. Oh, by the way, styling is included in our turnover.

Kitchen area



Technically, when you buy a certain property, mostly, upper kitchen cabinets were not included in the contract. It is quite unfair, really. It was really not nice when we first encountered it. We had to add an upper cabinet with layers of shelves inside, which was painted in white to look expensive. We even purchased a pricey earth hue stone to give character to her kitchen—boring though. We even replaced her ordinary handles into a high-quality stainless one courtesy of  Wilcon depot. We suggested that no installed handles must be seen on the upper cabinet to look clean and wide.



\
Bathroom

What makes me amazed is her bathroom is a little spacious wherein you could possibly place a washing machine, maybe. Since it was empty before, we had to make a lavatory cabinet for her toiletries. We ordered a fancy and shimmering black galaxy granite, which mostly used in hotels to give a luxury vibe to her bathroom. The hanging mirror that has an unlikely frame pattern was purchased from a well-known fixtures supplier in Ortigas, city.


Would you believe that this project only cost fewer than 150k? It may seem sound shocking but this is undeniably true. With the help of our team, her long-awaited apartment was finally designed according to a maximum budget. She already started her life living there and she said, “living in a glam space out of my personal savings and work effort was a dream come true”.

What are your thoughts on this studio? Is it nay or yay? Would love to hear it from you.

Top 5 Reasons Why This Apartment is Pinterest-worthy

We have been doing several projects for the past 7 years but this apartment will give you a buzz! Hold on to your breath and feel this aura!


  














Why is this Pinterest-worthy?

1. Every lady wishes to have a glamorous room and live like their idol. Audrey Hepburn. As she says, "The most important thing is to enjoy your life and making things possible". It may look impossible to have this kind of bedroom set-up, but if you damn want it, work on it and give it a shot! Look closely at the wall illusion; this will give you a cringe that this is only made of luxe wallpaper! Our designer, Jane, which gave life to this room, chose it. 

2. Because the client had been scrolling her Pinterest account since then and making sure that this will come alive!

 3. This is only 30 sqm/322ft yet her dream-walking closet was achieved! She can put all her signature boots, clutches, Evening gowns, and coats. This client is a pretty damn Fashionista and knows hot to slay  #ClosetGoals  

.4. Who doesn't want to have a fancy dinner on her sophisticated teal sofa? The vintage chairs and table, which adds up some rustic effect, creates an inviting atmosphere. Her kitchen is not even too big or too small just enough to prepare kick ass meals— Have you notice the eye-catching natural stone tiles that were used as the backsplash? Look nice right?

5. This natural wood furniture based on a  mood-board is basically a “Boho-Chic Choice”. This is made of solid wood and gives a light-looking aura. We only used solid pallets to the accents.

How Does The Real Estate Broker, Manage To Have Done His 2 BR Townhouse On A budget?

Being a Real Estate Broker has an advantage of getting a property easily when it comes to arranging the documents and connections. With a variety of choices—When it comes to size, location and offer— and has the power to bargain the value of a property, pretty sure it won’t be hard for them to look around.


Though, since the client is a family man, he still needs to keep a portion of his savings for his family. But hiring a Professional designer, as per him, will definitely empty his pocket to think of the size of his property is 70sqm lot area. Well.  Most clients’ have the same thoughts (We know that already) and were afraid to book a designer. But, we gave our client an impression that we can work together on his Php 500k strict budget all in (except appliances).





Living Area

The Entry foyer is the living area wherein the couple decides to put the L-shape sofa on the middle since the space is wide. Luckily, the cost of removing the existing tiles is not applied because the outcome of the turnover unit is just bare (Cement). High gloss 20x20 granite tiles were chosen because it looks more luxury when it is done.  A black backdrop for entertainment wall to give contrast to the existing white wall and decorating shelves for their accessories and decors. “Our living space became our sanctuary and now our instant favorite hang out place. I’d never had a chance to live comfortably like this in my entire life,” says Alfa, who works in a bank as Accounting Manager



Dining area


They just love the fabric that we used for the dining chairs. Upon touching the material, it may feel like genuine printed leather-based on the rubber texture but was made of high-quality fabric. The set-up is perfect for the occasion: Can sit up to 6 guests with wide mirror installed to give illusion effects and cozy drop ceiling with sunny cove light which was constructed rightly at the center of the table. The minimalist drop chandelier was our designer’s personal choice for the client.








Kitchen area

As per client request, He wants a different angle but appealing for cove lighting, not the traditional lightning edges. We constructed upper kitchen cabinet that includes replacement of existing ordinary kitchen granite to a black galaxy and patterned dual color backsplash, which complements the island counter. Alfa wants an island counter with a dual purpose: Chilling station and Breakfast nook for lazy mornings.






Kid's room/Guestroom


This cute space saver bunk bed is “Every kid wish to have”. With extra storage underneath for toys and 54” wide closet that is extra big compared to the standard size—made of highly compressed laminate.  Space is also used for guests, in case.





Master's Bedroom

For the bedroom, we chose blue horizontal patterned wallpaper to make the wall look taller—The color has its calming effect. A king size platform painted with a rustic blue finish to complement with the chosen wallpaper—Couple agrees to it plus rustic is absolutely nice as an accent in the bedroom.  The bedroom is not perfect without entertainment area wherein they could enjoy their privacy—cuddling while watching Netflix. The hanging cabinet was made for Alfas books and other stuffs.





Wife’s dream to finally have a walking closet (Who doesn’t want to?) was finally achieved! She assured us that her shopping talent for her OOTD’s would unleash like the movie: The devil wears Prada.

Imagine, on a Php 500k budget for Interior design and Construction, who would think that this could be possible?  Knowing labor and materials are now expensive. Good thing, they preferred minimalist designs that do not need a higher budget. And also, we don’t look at the value, because we exceed more to our client’s expectation by making them happy, at least.
