Newlyweds' First Pad: The Plan

It's really exciting to finally have your first home, one of my dreams is to have my own home that I can design and decorate to my heart's content, and my pocket's downfall. Haha.. But really,  I daydream of my future house a lot, like crazy person A LOT. I'm just blessed that I could share some of my decorating energy to my clients' spaces. I'd go nuts if I don't have any outlet, or our current family home would probably be a schizo who'll change personality every so often.

So I'm thrilled when I got this chance to design this newlyweds' first pad. It's a starter home with 25 sqm space. Not a lot, but just enough to have all the basics plus a little more.

Here's the space...

That's about it. A simple studio space that lacks any sort of personality, color, and most importantly, storage. Client's request: Fun colors, but soothing / green walls, with colorful accessories. And here's the plan...


A double bed with underneath drawers will be placed at the corner niche (see first pic). It will be accented with wallpapers in all three walls. A huge closet beside the bed to separate the living and sleeping area. Pale green walls through out. We'll be adding blue, pink, and grey accessories. A swing lamp will be installed on both sides of the closet for bed / sofa lighting.

The other side

The same wallpaper for the wall behind the TV wall (see second pic.) Huge mirror to the right of the TV. A lucite coffee table to lessen visual weight but still serves its function.

Colorful doen't really equal soothing, but I think by using paler color with just some bright accents is a great compromise to achieve both requests.

The construction of this space is in full swing. The space is taking shape by the minute and I can't be happier. It's a huge plus that my client is so nice. Well.. all of them are. I'm so lucky. (knock on wood)

I think they are nice because they know how valuable you are (well, I'm sure they are naturally nice)! Can't wait to see the finished product!

@brite - haha... I think they are just naturally nice. I've heard some horror client stories and I'm so happy I don't have any of those. :)

@trisha - photoshop :)
