Even a small space should be defined by the character of the homeowner. In this 30sqm condo owned by writer and poet Mabi David, her hobbies and interests can be seen in every corner. She achieved this personalized look by considering her lifestyle – she writes a lot, reads a lot, never watches TV, and she enjoys entertaining friends and relatives. With her habits and preferences in mind, she designed her own place with the help of her friend and interior designer Wilmer Lopez.

From a bare and unfurnished unit, Mabi now has a contemporary bohemian home filled with eclectic finds. Her interesting pieces include a solid narra dining table from Bangkal St., Makati, old chairs from her mother that were reupholstered with new fabric, and an ornate mirror painted over with a bright neon hue.
