After living in a 28sqm condo unit in Quezon City, newlyweds Edgar and James wanted to start anew in a bigger space, with plans of creating an all-white, minimalist-modern home. “We were searching for a bare unit. It would be just like a blank canvas that’s easy to rearrange and redesign anytime we want,” says Edgar. As fate willed, the couple discovered a place through a post on Facebook and it proved to be a blessing. “We met with the owner and had a tour of the unit. It was partly furnished already and we fell in love with everything that’s in it. It has a feel of Manhattan, New York and it’s rustic. It has a good balance of masculinity and homeyness,” recalls Edgar.

The best part? The previous owner of the unit is also an interior designer. Aimee Bernardo took charge of the unit's renovation while sourcing for the pieces that will complete the space. “90 percent of the furniture pieces were chosen by Aimee and luckily, everything—from the furniture to the appliances—suited our taste. It was a breeze,” the two exclaim. Given the permits, approvals, and processes involved, the design and construction of the unit took almost a year to finish. “Aimee had to be very careful in putting all the pieces together to be able to achieve the intended design and look,” says Edgar. Being aligned with the designer and having an open mind when it comes to suggestions also helped the two sail through the challenges of creating a home. “[You need to have] passion and love for the project. Of course, when you put your heart into any project, the result would be beautiful,” Edgar shares.
