Five years ago, homeowner Trixie made a huge decision. As an investor in Ayala bonds, she took the option to get a discount on an Ayala property instead of getting her dividends. This is how she ended up with this studio unit in Makati, where she also works. “After a year, I realized it was a good development, so I tried to find two studio units that were side by side so that I could merge them into a one-bedroom unit with two bathrooms [in the future],” Trixie shares. But for now, Trixie will be renting out the units that she purchased.

This 30sqm unit, by far, is her favorite. After attempting to decorate it herself with the help of her mom and sisters (one of whom is an artist with an architect husband), she gave up. “I realized that it was taking too much of my time already, and I had to get professional help if I wanted to speed things up. So, a friend of mine introduced me to Grace Moslares of Magara Designs through Facebook Messenger and voila! These units came to life!”
