An Asian Inspiration for a Mandaluyong Condo

A sought-after makeup artist finds harmony and comfort in his city home - thanks to a little feng shui

Shares

For a busy makeup artist like Krist Bansuelo, living in the deeper south of Metro Manila didn’t make work easy for him. The distance and traffic made it difficult to meet with his clients as well as go to his projects. These factors often resulted in him not being able to host makeup trials for brides. Given his situation, Krist acquired a condo unit in Mandaluyong and sought the help of his friend, decorator Marilyn Villaflor.

Playing around with masculine colors and following feng shui philosophies, Marilyn and Krist were able to design a home that was serene and harmonious—the perfect escape for a busy professional living in a bustling city. Blue hues were blended with taupe while mud colors added a calm atmosphere to the 81sqm space. Tearing down the walls opened the home – allowing free movement. Not only did the tropical influences and the feng shui create a peaceful home for the makeup artist but it became a beautiful location to welcome new clients and projects, too.
