If you’ve gone through four companies together, have a solid boss-employee relationship, and own an Airbnb-listed property with two other friends, it’s safe to trust your friend enough to ask her to decorate your place—at least in Fermil Añonuevo’s case, that is.
Fermil initially wanted to get a designer for his space, but since his boss and good friend Jeiel Deogracias has a knack for interior design, he decided to get her to decorate his place instead. After all, this wasn’t the first time they collaborated on a project.
Jeiel’s first order of business was to knock down the walls of Fermil’s two-bedroom unit. “Nung una kasi, with the two rooms, ang pangit ng flow. Na-block nung walls yung sunlight from the windows. Mabuti pumayag si Fermil na ipa-knock down yung walls,” says Jeiel. As soon as she got Fermil’s approval, she started getting down to the nitty-gritty. The duo didn’t have anything planned except for the concept: an industrial-themed unit.
Since they pretty much DIY-ed most of the stuff, building the unit didn’t come easy. They underwent several changes and re-dos, but it all proved worthy in the end seeing how happy they both were with the result.
