Frederick Peralta, noted fashion designer, has lived and worked in Malate’s bohemian environment. It was an ideal location, particularly since the area is accessible for most of his clientele. However, a friend of his spotted a quaint apartment along one of Tomas Morato’s quiet streets. The move proved to be a blessing not only for his Quezon City clients, but also for the designer who discovered a relaxing respite in his new apartment.

With his keen eye for details and yen for antiques pieces, Frederick was able to renovate his new apartment within a few months. Starting off with bright white walls as his blank canvas, he filled his home with his beloved antique collection sourced from Old Manila and a myriad of places as far as Mount Pinatubo. He then added his favorite art pieces made by friends---complemented by his own touches of design brilliance around the apartment. The result is an inspired dwelling befitting a creative individual who believes that “Beautiful things inspire you to create more.”
