If there’s one thing Vincent de Jesus knows well it’s music. So it was a refreshing surprise when his home in Quezon City became a successful interior decorating project.

What was initially a basic home renovation project – major repairs here, an upgrade there – became a trial-and-error project in creating the ideal home-and-work area for him. As the renovation progressed, his home evolved into a space that was suitable not only to work in, but also to entertain friends and host meetings for The Writers Bloc, a group of esteemed playwrights.

He eschewed “white walls” as the perfect “space enlarger” color, and instead chose “lumot green,” a grayish green shade that is surprisingly refreshing. Paintings by Farley del Rosario was the catalyst for De Jesus to consider red accents to complement the green palette throughout his home, while pieces from EDIA and IKEA complete the rest of the furnishings.
