The owners of this home had been jumping from one place to another ever since they got married. From Singapore, they leased a unit in Makati, while the condo they bought was being built from the ground up. In July 2013, the couple unpacked their boxes — hopefully the last for a long time — and finally settled into their three-bedroom condo unit in Pasig City.

Now that they finally had a place to rightfully call their own, the couple decided to research on how to furnish their home that reflected their personalities — both as individuals and as a couple. “We wanted it to feel lived in and a bit quirky,” they share. “This is our first permanent home, and when we were thinking of what we wanted for our space, we said that it should be a reflection of what we like, who we are, and where we’ve been. We’ve been to places where some of the homes seem too picture-perfect. It’s not us.” Thanks to Google and referrals, they came across Heima, a store that carries a sense of style and vibrant youthfulness that the couple prefers. Hiring Heima’s designers to turn the 97sqm unit into a home was an easy decision.

Since the owners work in the advertising industry, they knew that respecting the creative process of the Heima team, led by creative director/interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales, was important in order to fulfill their vision for their new home. The owners simply wanted to be transported into another world each time they close the curtains and they prefer ambient lighting, too.

In the end, the creative freedom worked to the couple's favor, as they were surprised to find design details they didn’t know they’d like. Indeed, their latest (and hopefully last) abode is testament that trusting your creative team to work their magic will benefit both parties.
