First Home Tour: 86sqm Condo

You won’t believe how much I miss producing home tours—like I totally miss producing them. And with the added challenge of the current pandemic, how could you invade someone’s personal space safely at this time?

Well, thank God for Facebook (snicker), and the whole plethora of beautiful homes my designer friends would post in it. One of them is this small but lovely project by licensed interior designer and University of the Philippines professor Hannah Acab-Faustino of Ideal Interior Design Services, which she runs with hubby and contractor Jorge.

I’m amazed at how the initial rendering (top image) looks exactly like the finished project! (bottom photo) Images here are courtesy of Hannah Faustino.

Hannah used to be our suki featured designer in the erstwhile home magazine I ran a few years back. And why not? Her residential designs have a certain subtle and relaxing elegance about them, whether it’s a sprawling and Taguig home or the 86sqm family condo unit here.  So I decided to post a quick home tour of her recent project.

(Left) The mirror detail in the dining area appears like there’s an extra room and makes the place look bigger. (Right) A drop-down table to add more counter prep space in the small kitchen.
The condo unit’s living room is decorated in soothing camel and gray tones.
The lovely bedroom for the two sisters in the home. This is a nice, non-cloying way to use pink in a girls’ room.
(Left) The study area in the girls’ room- another nifty way of incorporating a WFH/study area in a small space. (RIght) Another small-space trick: using mirrored doors on the master bedroom’s closets to visually enlarge the space.
Fun touches in the tiny bathroom: farmhouse-style handles in the sink cabinet, and a mix of patterned and subway tiles.

I miss seeing your works (and I miss you!) Hannah. For more information, or if you’re interested in her services, you can contact the interior designer here on her page.
