Loleng's smart purchase, where she was able to get her dream furniture at an affordable price.

Favorite interior design from learning outcomes

The interior design takes a minimalist approach. It was influenced by the clean and functional style of the Japanese house, as well as the result of learning the minimalist lifestyle from books.

Self-taught, Mrs. MJ. Loleng learned about color, lighting, and space arrangement to get the desired living space. For example, this living room uses a small-sized sofa to get more space for family members to bond.

Granite is more visually appealing and easier to clean. All utensils and kitchen appliances are easily accessible. The movement is minimalist to make cooking more enjoyable and efficient.

Add life with plants
