A Rustic Home and Art Gallery in Dumaguete City
Art pieces and rustic finds in an art gallery and residence overlooking Tambobo Bay and Apo Island
Perched on a hilltop property overlooking Tambobo Bay and Apo Island, sculptor and furniture designer Karl Aguila’s home and gallery is an ever-changing sanctuary. Aside from sharing the home with his wife Ophanie and son Rafa, the space also serves as an art gallery filled with consigned art pieces and his personal creations.
Despite the constant change, Karl and Ophanie’s style still dominates the home. Karl’s signature use of solid wood for his furniture pieces and Ophanie’s fondness for textiles resonate throughout the different spaces. They also employed a number of beautifully rustic finds, from old church doors to exotic artifacts.
