Playful Colors and Patterns in a 38sqm Unit
An eclectic combination of hues and prints livens up this advertising specialist's one-bedroom unit
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.
