A Colorful Retro Feel for a 75sqm Condo in Taguig
Bright shades, bold patterns, and eclectic pieces define the home of this former sales manager
Since all of her children work abroad and she often has to stay at home all by herself, former sales manager Joji Ledesma-Pineda decided to move into a condo unit. After all, for those living on their own, staying in a condo can feel like a much safer choice than a traditional house. However, it was not enough for Joji to feel secure and protected, she also had to have a cozy, comfortable, and attractive home.
In order to create the perfect two-bedroom home for Joji, interior designer Diana Zamora stepped in. Diana helped Joji choose vibrant shades, interesting prints, and mid-century modern pieces. The combination of these elements have led to a well-furnished space with a unique retro appeal.

The foyer is furnished with a customized console table adorned with decor from Our Home, SM Home, and Market! Market!. Hanging on the wall above the console table are the baby shoes of Joji's children kept in a gold frame.
Instead of a plain white wall, you can try putting up a faux brick wall in white. Leaning against the white brick wall in this living area is a gray tufted couch covered with throw pillows.
On the opposite wall is a flat-screen TV placed in front of a wall covered in black wallpaper from WallCrown.
WallCrown is located at MC Home Depot, Bonifacio Global City.
The customized sofa is upholstered with fabric from Larry's. Adjacent to the sofa is an accent chair from Heima that Joji spotted at the RL Space event in 2013.
The brick wall is adorned with the homeowner's old posters and paintings. In order to make them seem more polished, the old prints have been placed in brand new frames.
You can have your precious posters, paintings, and even photographs framed at Gallery Frames: The Picture Frame Shop, Inc. at 3/L Glorietta 4, Makati City.
The coffee table is adorned with books, a vase, and a vintage pair of binoculars.
The dining area is furnished with customized pieces, including the personalized dining table, dining chairs, and yellow mirror. These bespoke items make the area seem unique and special. The space is completed with a pendant lamp from Azcor.
Azcor is located at 4/L Bldg. B, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.
While the rest of the 75sqm unit has a quirky and eclectic feel, the bedroom seems far less busy and cluttered. The most interesting find in the space is a tall ladder shelf used to store and display personal belongings.
The master bedroom is completed with a dresser topped with a mirror that has a white geometric frame and elegant accessories.
Placed beside the white dresser is a customized blue chair topped with a green throw pillow. Behind the chair is a wall covered in wallpaper from WallCrown.
One of the walls is adorned with floating shelves that hold Joji's favorite books and collectible toy cars.
A plain rack is used to keep various bags organized.
Joji's coin collection is left in a wooden tray on top of her cabinet.
