Tanya Escaler, along with her mom and grandmother, succeeded in merging their individual styles and preferences into one lovely home that showcases each woman’s collections and passions.

The home exudes subtle elegance complemented by art pieces, home décor, and classic furnishings. Its cream-and-white motif was the perfect backdrop for sala sets of different styles, a love for fashion and style, and a talented artist whose work must be showcased.

The renovation of the house included putting up additional walls and panels adorned with simple floor and ceiling moldings that provided space to display a smorgasbord of paintings. Since each woman brought in her own set of home décor and furnishings gathered and collected for years – each with its own story and history, their home exudes an aura that is personal and intimate yet cozy and inviting. The Escaler abode was inspired by designer Bunny Soler of Design Masters, Tanya’s mother’s friend with whom she collaborated with to create the 27-year-old living room set. Tanya’s mother has no interior design background, yet she has designed several furniture pieces for their home, which were crafted by family friend Antonio Narciso of A.N. Workshop.
