When you’re newly married, have just settled into a one-bedroom condo unit (with a complete set of customized furniture to fit the space), and get great news along the way that you’re going to be parents soon, moving out seems like a terrible idea, what with the packing, hauling, and getting the new unit ready before the baby arrives. But interior designer Catherine Cena-Yambao and landscape architect husband Erick did just that.

The designer couple were worried about not having enough space for their soon-to-be family of three, so they preferred a two-bedroom unit, which was fortunately available a few floors down in the same building. Luck seemed to have been on their side because their new space came with two arched floor-to-ceiling windows—only one of the two units in the entire building to have such. The good news? They didn’t have to worry about their customized furniture set because the pieces fit perfectly in their new space, too! “Sakto sila. Amazing!” says Catherine who designed the pieces herself.

“Our home’s look is a mix of mid-century and modern. It’s also a bit contemporary, since that’s my style. We’re both designers so it’s a merging of both our styles. You’ll see a touch of our personalities all over the house,” Catherine shares. The said styles are hard to miss upon entering the house.

The dining area is what welcomes the guests near the door, which is just right as the couple likes throwing dinner parties once in a while. A few steps in and one of the arched windows comes into sight in the living area. Behind the TV set in the living area is the master bedroom where the other floor-to-ceiling window sits. It is adjacent to their daughter Zoey’s playroom and the kitchen, with two bathrooms and a study nook serving as the divider.
