Your home should be a reflection of your personality and interests, as in the case of this eclectic modern contemporary house owned by Kat and Joel Limchoc. Their extensive experience in advertising has not only influenced their style, it also made them comfortable to conceptualize and execute their ideal design: a clean minimalist space filled with their art and toy collections.

Instead of being left in storage to gather dust, their favorite prints and paintings adorn the walls while designer vinyl toys liven up rooms that are predominantly in white. The pair has even created a few pieces themselves, including a Kat’s funny family portrait and a quirky War-and-Peace-themed clock designed by Joel.
