When constructing, renovating or simply sprucing up your home, personalize it with the things closest to your heart, just as Emily Crisostomo and Marla Guevara did when they built their own space. Since Emily’s family runs a shipping business and Marla is a Hong Kong-based flight attendant, they thought of a sea and sky theme for their two-storey house by architect Jeff Velasco and interior designer Vivian Gacad.

First, a modern tropical look is created with pristine white walls and floors and an open layout combined with wooden ceilings, dividers and furniture pieces. The sea and sky theme can be appreciated through the airy and spacious feel of the home and accessories like sailboat prints, fish and airplane structures, and even an aircraft-inspired lighting installation.
