If there is one thing homeowner Wayne is adamant about, it’s that “I love modern-clean. I don't like antique-y, clutter, dusty. I hate dark. Nothing here is dark.” Indeed, the house he and his wife, Stella, share is testament to their love for everything minimalist and modern: glass windows, clean lines, a monochromatic palette that mostly consists of neutrals.

The couple’s design preference is greatly influenced by Wayne’s love for hotels, “because they're so minimalistic. Everything’s clean, simple, and comfy. I like the resort-style living.” And with the help of architect-friend, Joel Muñoz, and contractor RG Roa, the Dearings were able to make their vision of having a Sydney-esque beach house in the middle of chaotic Metro Manila come true.
