After planning to move out of his family's home in Mandaluyong for five years, advertising executive Junn de las Alas finally found the right unit in a Thai-inspired community in the city. To make the most of the 38sqm property, he turned to former Real Living creative director and decorator Gwyn Guanzon for help. Gwyn suggested a style inspired by French Indochina, which merges European flavor with Vietnamese charm.

This small space has allowed both designer and client to venture out of their comfort zones. The self-confessed “style-less” Jun has transitioned from a design newbie to a homeowner in the know. “I used to question myself a lot—hindi ko alam if tama ba yung decisions ko,” he says. Now, his next style challenge is to add his own accessories and make his new home completely his.
