Project Modern Cottage

12:20:00 PM




I was asked to design a halfway house for a family of four. The main design inspiration is modern cottage which is the design the queen of the wife loves. To tone down the femininity a bit, I used clean modern furniture and wood elements throughout. For the cottage vibe, we installed chair rail height bead board for the entire unit, and painted the space in a pale blue / green hue. Read more details about the project here.

Project Modern Mix

3:43:00 AM

I love this project. It enabled me to go beyond my typical "chic" aesthetic in a bigger scale. This is a big condo unit, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Originally, it was 2 units but the owner wanted to combine them so the dividing concrete wall was removed. We went with a very neutral tone, but incorporated tons of textures and some colors through furnishing and art. To read more about this project, read here.

Project Industrial Chic

1:41:00 AM
This was just a bare condominium loft unit when we first started, it's fine but there's nothing interesting in there. We replaced the downstairs floors with a light neutral wood looking vinyl type flooring to make it more durable in the kitchen since we wanted to have the same flooring for the entire space. We added a white-washed brick wall on one big wall, and wood beams for a much needed architectural detail. The walls were painted a warm white, and we added colors through furnishing and accessories. If you're afraid to commit to colors, use them in accessorizing your space, so much easier to change, yet it still gives you the same happy vibe. :) The kitchen cabinets were updated via trim and paint and we added a backsplash tile. The loft bedroom was kept simple and we painted the walls blue for a more relaxed feel. But I think my most favorite part of this project is the stairs gallery wall. It's just so happy. I kept the frames simple white, and all the photos bright and colorful. To see the entire story of this project, click here.

Luna Coffee

8:01:00 AM
Luna Specialty Coffee is a coffee spot in BGC. I was asked to design a space that is industrial yet cozy, a space where people can just hang-out. One corner is turned into private function room. They wanted that room a little more upscale and less gritty, so we had the walls in deep moody color and added moldings all through out. The furniture in here are more streamlined compared to the vintage and off-beat look of the main dining space.

The main dining space are all brick walls, wood tones, blacks, and concrete, metal, and concrete. The chairs are all refinished vintage metal chairs. Tables are custom-made parquet in different hues. Love the combination of all the elements in here, simple but with so much texture.

The Working Loft

5:01:00 AM

We turned this blank space into an industrial office. The concept is to have a communal working space where people can work together closely, be productive, and just have fun. One big table in the middle of it all, lounge area to relax, a pantry, and a private room. The feel is very industrial with concrete walls and floors, black brick walls, exposed pipes and ducts, pipe and metal shelves, and lots of natural wood.
