A Three-Storey House defined by a Black and White Palette
Two friends share a unique and eclectic home with a dramatic vibe
Choosing materials, furniture, and furnishings based on a certain color scheme is an easy way to decorate your home. For their three-storey space in the city, long-time friends Andoy Ranay and Peter Serrano decided on a black and white palette inspired by French interiors. Peter first stayed with Andoy at his old one-bedroom place after Typhoon Ondoy hit the country in 2009. The pair eventually agreed to share a new, spacious property that had enough room for them to be comfortable and creative.
Since Peter is a theater, film, and TV actor and Andoy is an actor and director, they both have a flair for drama – something that was put to good use in designing the space. Upon the suggestion of their friend and former Real Living creative director Gwyn Guanzon, they followed a chic, bold French style that shines through the black and white palette with striking red touches. To fit the new theme, walls, floors and even the staircase were all painted. Some of their existing furniture pieces like the dining tables were also painted black for a cohesive look.
