Creativity is best nurtured within living spaces that are inspiring and personal. This can’t be proven any stronger than by Denise Celdran’s home which is littered with her mosaic pieces, travel mementos, and personal collections. The mosaic artist and percussionist has created a dwelling place for herself that allows her to merge both work and play within the same space.

She claims her home to be a work in progress, yet as it is, her house already has its own distinct artsy flair that makes it inviting. The motif is a simple neutral palette, making it ideal as a blank canvas to showcase her colorful and delicate mosaic lamps, vases, and pots.

Natural light streams into the house in abundance, allowing a perfect workshop for Denise to work in. Despite the simplicity of her furnishings and the home’s overall architecture, Denise’ home is interesting, vibrant, and dynamic, as each piece of art has its own unique story to tell.
