Homeowner: Julien and Naomi Pescheux

Type of Home: Three-bedroom Condo Unit

Style of Home: Asian, modern

Entering the Pescheux's home is like stepping inside a beautifully curated furniture showroom featuring the best pieces Southeast Asia has to offer. As you go along, you'll discover that there's more to it than its aesthetic; there's a story. That story began when homeowners Julien and Naomi Pescheux first met in Laos. Together, they moved to Thailand, then to Singapore, Indonesia next, and now the Philippines. With their journey came great and unique pieces for their home. “We just kept picking up pieces as our house was growing, as our income was growing, as our family was growing,” says Naomi. “Gradually, we found pieces that we liked and added those to the collection of stuff,” she adds.

Aside from the couple’s nomadic lifestyle, their home design can also be attributed to their children, Ben and Zoe. They are two-fourths of who inspired Duduk, an Indonesia-based shop founded and created by Naomi and her friend Judith Baker (who also has two kids) that sells handmade, hand-painted, and hand-dyed home décor for kids.

If anything, this couple’s home only proves that one doesn’t have to go far for inspiration.
