When homeowner Paul Camangian bought this Quezon City townhouse, he knew that he wanted it to have a Filipino-inspired style. However, he also knew that he didn’t want a traditional Philippine style with dark wood and tribal touches. In order to create a more modern look for his four-bedroom, three-storey property, Paul turned to former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon for design help.

Gwyn rose to the challenge by using classic Pinoy details in new and unexpected ways. For example, he used the solihiya pattern in different parts of the home. The wall by the stairs is adorned with white solihiya-inspired details made from plywood sheets. The fabrics used for the throw pillows and cushions in the living area also have solihiya-like prints. Even the customized dining chairs have solihiya seats made from leather.
