Designing for a couple often involves the challenge of differing style preferences. In the case of young couple Ben and Mau Tan’s three-storey townhouse, Mau, the wife, took the lead in the design of their home. The couple enlisted the help of interior designers Wilan Dayrit, Karina Cagalingan and design student Kevin Pareja for this project.

Together, they conceived of a modern tropical aesthetic punctuated by brilliant art pieces. A neutral color palette creates the perfect backdrop for the unique art pieces by the likes of Arturo Luz and Ramon Orlina. Most of the rooms are appointed with plants and flowers, keeping with the tropical style as well.
