Just because homeowner Gabby’s friends have dubbed his 45sqm studio, “The Devil’s Den” doesn’t mean that it has black walls, red lights, and is completely dark. On the contrary, Gabby’s pad in Salcedo Village, Makati is usually awash with natural light, thanks to its high ceiling and a row of windows along one wall.

The studio actually earned its nickname because of the many parties Gabby throws in his pad. With a practical eye and simple furnishings, parties in his place do rock. Each piece has a function—the inviting black couch, the artist’s table, the huge mirror, the DIY coffee table, Gabby’s homemade white lamp, and, of course, his headboard-less custom-made bed. All of these put together make up a space that’s stark, homey, and cool at the same time.
