We paid a visit to the home of interior stylist and lifestyle blogger Marilen Faustino-Montenegro from Marilen Styles. Over a delightful platter of custard buns and peppermint tea, we discussed her favorite interior styles and the challenges of designing for a Hong Kong apartment since relocating from the Philippines.
Check out the video below to see our exclusive interview.
Firstly, in the entryway Marilen keeps decorations and memories of family on this slim console table. She picked it up in Hong Kong, where slim furniture works better for the city’s small apartments. As an illustration of tranquility, she likes to decorate the table with fresh flowers. In general it creates an overall feeling of warmth and welcoming when you arrive in her apartment.
The bedroom features markedly calming blue tones and picture frames. It’s a place of relaxation with its candles, organized storage, and the white walls and mirrors to reflect the light from the wide windows.
It would be foolish not to mention that the living room is a place for family fun. From time to time, the family will order pizza, or have a laid back dinner and stay in to watch movies.
What’s more, the kids even get to stay up a little later on Friday nights.
