Those who choose to have halfway homes have one thing in common—they want a special place where they can relax and unwind. To be able to create the space that the owners wanted and envisioned, interior designer Jiselle Yu took inspiration from the property itself. Since One Shangri-La Place has exceptional amenities, she made sure that the unit exuded the same feel by completing it with pieces that speak of elegance and comfort as well as colors that add warmth. The result is a stylish home with an inviting ambiance and contemporary flair.

Living Area

The living area would remind you of a posh hotel suite. Using accessories from Crate and Barrel and West Elm, to name a few—Jiselle was able to create a cozy area with opulent details. The designer also worked with wall veneer from Lamitak, a surfaces lifestyle brand known for its high pressure laminates. Lamitak is distributed by Eurokonzept Marketing Philippines, Inc.

Another interesting feature in the area is the padded wall with fabric from Weaves of Asia. Aside from serving as an accent wall, it also helps improve the acoustics in the room.

Living Area

Ceramic accessories liven up the open shelves. To add drama and warmth to the space, the wooden panel conceals accent lighting.

Dining Area

One of the noticeable features of the dining area is the marble wall. This was added to create a luxe feel while the mirror gives an illusion of bigger space. To keep the dining area from looking bland and stiff, wooden chairs with woven details were also added.


The huge bed spells comfort and ease while the select accessories echo the luxurious feel of the entire unit. One of the unique touches in this part of the home is the black glass behind the bed. Bordered by an almost black laminate from Lamitak, it adds a classy and elegant appeal to the space.


The eye-catching wall lamp was a made-to-order piece by Azcor. The touch of gold works well with the color palette of the room while the wallpaper from Wallcrowne adds texture and livens up the plain walls.

Work Corner

A tiny nook in the place serves as a mini home office or reading area. The sleek table with glass top was paired with a wooden chair—creating a balanced look.

Spare Room

The second bedroom in the unit was turned into a game room of sorts where the lady of the house can entertain and bond with friends. Abstract paintings by Ivan Acuna add character and hints of color to the space while the window seat serve as extra lounge area.
