Look Inside This 27-sqm Barbie-Inspired Condo
January 23, 2018
Dr. Sherri Ann Suplido is an OB-GYN with a sub-specialty in Perinatology or Maternal Fetal medicine. Her warm, exuberant and approachable demeanour puts people instantly at ease. She resides in this 27-sqm Barbie-inspired condo designed by interior designer Catherine Cena. “I told Cathy I wanted bright colors but with a hint of maturity. I told her I’m open to wilder ideas, as I’m not a sedate person. I wanted a dresser and I also required storage to keep unnecessary items from lying around,” elaborates the condo owner.
Catherine and her team did a total overhaul on Sherri’s condo. The first thing that strikes every visitor upon entry to the lovely abode is the stunning color palette of pink, grey, white and black, a sophisticated reflection of the owner’s femininity and fun personality. Upon entry, you are greeted by the pink shoe cabinet and just like the real-life Barbie the owner is, her shoe collection is safely stored stylishly.
The space will remind you of a Barbie dollhouse scaled to real life. A hanging clock adds charm to the abode and the cove lighting softly bouncing off the white ceilings opens up the space despite the lack of windows and natural sunlight.
The kitchen is the hands-down favorite space of both owner and designer. The interior designer used marquina black marble for the kitchen counters for dramatic contrast against the white ceiling, cabinetry and floor.
In true Barbie fashion, the condo owner’s bed comes in pink and is ensconced between her dresser and a wall shelf. Also residing in the unit is Milk, Sherri’s mix breed dog. “When I come here, I feel happy. The toxicity I normally feel from work and running to and from one clinic to another just vanishes!,” shares the owner of the Barbie-inspired condo.
