After living with the in-laws for 13 years, the Gardoce family finally decided to have a house of their own. In the beginning, it was a nightmare, to say the least. “Parang wala kaming order! Hodgepodge lang lahat,” cinematographer Gary Gardoce laughs.

Even after two repainting jobs, Gary and his wife Riza still weren’t happy with how their brand-new nest looked. Then they chanced upon Real Living and saw the work of contributing style editor Issa Villar. With Issa’s experience and expertise, the Gardoce home got a breath of fresh air — and cheery shades that are a stark contrast to the house’s previous dark hues. Beige and white are the neutrals tempering the accents of turquoise, apple green, and red peppering the 270sqm home. The result is a harmonious confluence of colors, and a vibe that is both homey and happy — quirky modernism at its best.
