Stepping inside the condo unit of Izza Gonzales-Agana is like doing yoga: while inside it, you're brought to a peaceful state. The former model, who now designs yoga wear that is sold at Bikram Yoga Manila in Makati City, wanted this 179sqm condo home to sport a clean aesthetic. Neutrals dominate the space, but the unit is far from being plain and cold.

Izza sought the help of interior designer Cheska Nolasco to help her edit her furniture picks and plan the unit's color scheme. The result is a simple yet classy look. A mix of metal, wood, and soft furnishings makes the home welcoming. Big windows let in a lot of natural light, and simple but carefully curated accessories make for interesting vignettes. It is hard not to love this condo unit, and when you're inside, you just want to stay and bask in its serenity.
