A Bachelor Pad Transformed into a Couple’s Starter Home
A common love for books, knickknacks, and comfortable furniture help transform this sparse bachelor pad into a condo unit fit for marital bliss
Woowee and Ianne Evangelista decided to live in Woowee’s bachelor pad after they got married. They shied away from getting an interior designer or decorating the place right away because they wanted to see how their living and decorating preferences would mesh. A good advice to follow, if their current home – now comfortable and full of personality, without an air of pretentiousness – is anything to go by.
Both book lovers, the couple installed and bought many shelving units to display their massive collection. Little trinkets, each with a story behind them, clue visitors in to the couples’ interests and personalities. From a Japanese figurine encased in glass from Woowee’s dad, pillows from Vancouver, pom-poms from an office performance by Ianne, amidst comfy sofas and sturdy wooden furniture, their home is a cozy nest of wedded bliss, a perfect merging of personalities reflected in a humble abode.
