Ninel Constantino, an artist and faculty member at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, renovated her lola's old apartment so that she could have her own personal space. With her lifestyle in mind, she was able to create the perfect space for making art and entertaining friends.

Ninel completed the rooms with animal door pulls, lamp shades, wooden figures, bamboo nesting boxes, and vintage Chinese ad posters from her trips around Asia, Europe, and the Unites States. 

If you would like to have a similar feel in your own area, here are pieces made from wood, metal, and leather that you may want to consider.
