The creation of this home shows that when you close a chapter of your life, a new one is set to begin. Coming from a huge change in her life, the owner of this unit decided to move into a new home with her children.

Along with her interior designer friend, Dobie Aranda, the owner chose a 185sqm two-bedroom unit in Makati. Built on a mix of styles, her new home served as a homage to a neutral black and white palette inside a luxurious space, decorated with refinished Louis XVI chairs, lush damask fabric, crystal and mirrored pieces, and dark chandeliers. Oriental art served as accents, with chests of drawers, a Guan Yin statue, and a couple of modern sculptural pieces found all over the home.

The result is a contemporary homage to the classics – an exceptionally stylish home bursting with beautifully crafted furniture and distinct art pieces. Aside from being satisfied with the aesthetically pleasing output, the owner is more than happy to find and build a new home with her kids that gives her a sense of freedom.
