For Ito and Tippi Ocampo, an off-the-rack renovation of their home would never have worked. When the couple got the house from Tippi’s grandmother, they went about fixing it with one underlying thought: to keep its vintage vibe. So most of what they did, really, was to clean, repair, and repaint. They kept the original brick structure and didn’t touch the house’s layout—even the light fixtures were retained.

Ito and Tippi, however, did some décor adjusting. From the White Plains segunda mano, they got a handsome coffee table. Although the dining area has modern touches—a white-black-gray-powder blue Bernie Pacquing painting and white plastic chairs—the chandelier hanging over the table maintains its old soul appeal. Each piece in the Ocampo home is carefully picked. Nothing is trivial, because they know that they’ve finally found the home that they’ll grow old in.
