After five years of saving practically everything that she earned, Bianca King finally had enough to get her own space. While she initially planned on buying a condo unit, her friend (and real estate scion) Victor Consunji convinced her to purchase a townhouse instead. 

In decorating the two-bedroom, two-bathroom property, Bianca followed the shabby chic design concept popularized by British interior designer Rachel Ashwell. In line with this style, she paired her parents' well-loved furniture with pieces found at thrift stores and garage sales.
