DEC­O­RAT­ING A LARGE SPACE Fill­ing a large home with fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories can feel over­whelm­ing, es­pe­cially since here in the philip­pines, “most of the fur­ni­ture avail­able sa mar­ket is per­fect for small spa­ces,” says de­signer iriss man­gio. con­sider these tips for mak­ing a huge space feel cozy. 1. Think about scale. “They have to con­sider the mea­sure­ment of the fur­ni­ture,” says iriss.

“Min­san kasi, they’re drawn to a chair that would fit in a con­do­minium, pero pag ni­la­gay

sa big space, parang ang liit ng chair.” l-shaped so­fas look right at home in big­ger liv­ing rooms. 2. Di­vide and con­quer. Use a screen, a daybed, or a con­sole ta­ble to sep­a­rate two different ar­eas. a rug can an­chor a setup away from other seat­ing ar­eas and keep it from looking like it’s "float­ing". 3. Play with ver­ti­cal space. Drop­lights and tall plants can keep high ceil­ings from swal­low­ing up a room. other dec­o­ra­tive so­lu­tions: a long, ver­ti­cal paint­ing or sculp­ture, or treat­ing one of the main walls in wood ve­neer cladding or a spe­cial paint fin­ish.
