When it comes to the design of your dream home, you no longer need to stick to one particular style anymore. You can always try different kinds of furniture pieces, furnishings and finishes to find what looks good together. Interior designer Joy Ejercito has mastered this art of combining various styles to create unique spaces. She has applied the same principles in her own house, which she describes as “Retro Scandinavian Hip”.

The Scandinavian influence is reflected in the clean, minimalist feel of the 900sqm, two-storey, six-bedroom structure while the retro style is conveyed through pieces with a vintage look such as a reproduction Wassily chair by Marcel Breuer, Alvar Aalto's Chair, and a Barcelona chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
