“Decorating is simply putting the pieces that you love together, there's no rule. Your eyes are your guide. As long as the colors match, the pieces are streamlined, mixed with interesting pieces, a personalized look is achieved. As long as the walls and the floors are neutral, it becomes your canvas. Moving the pieces around could be seamless and quite fun,” says architect Rachel Harrison, the creative mind behind Zambawood in San Narciso, Zambales.

The nature-inspired 500sqm house is built on a one-hectare fenced property in their family’s ancestral land.
