Storage Rules
“M axim ize storage so that everything lias a place to
go into.” Manpreet had adeep 10 -in ch w indow partially converted into a
cabinet, and a part o f the balcony sectioned into a store room.
Balance W ell
“Both p r ivacy and openness need tobe balanced out.
T h e best w ay to do it is w ith a screen o r w indow s w ith blinds.”
Feel Right
“D on’t look at a w all and then search fo r an art piece. Yo u
might end up buying som ething in a hurry and regretting it later. Buy
som ething keeping its aesthetic value and its final destination in m ind.”

To give her kids their individual zones

decorated with doll houses.
