When an individual decides on an Asian Maximalist style, he considers no limits. It doesn’t even matter if he only has 80sqm to work with. This holds true in the case of dermatological surgeon Rommel who owns an 80sqm two-bedroom unit. He initially considered going for a minimalist style but soon found out that he was a maximalist. The result is a jewel of a home that’s bursting at the seams. The small space highlights a complex and layered statement that borrows from temple designs as well as street corner opium dens.

Rommel prefers to have antiques in his home as he earlier preferred. Compared with other furniture pieces, he found antiques to be more budget-friendly and their value also increases with time. Most of the furniture pieces in his home were bought from flea markets, antique shops, or thrift shops around the Metro like the ones along Kamuning, Mandaluyong, or the Sta. Ana area in Manila.
