A Fashion Designer Showcases Antiques in a Quezon City Apartment
Antique pieces from Frederick Peralta’s collection take center stage in a sleek and simply designed space that fuses work and home
Frederick Peralta, noted fashion designer, has lived and worked in Malate’s bohemian environment. It was an ideal location, particularly since the area is accessible for most of his clientele. However, a friend of his spotted a quaint apartment along one of Tomas Morato’s quiet streets. The move proved to be a blessing not only for his Quezon City clients, but also for the designer who discovered a relaxing respite in his new apartment.
With his keen eye for details and yen for antiques pieces, Frederick was able to renovate his new apartment within a few months. Starting off with bright white walls as his blank canvas, he filled his home with his beloved antique collection sourced from Old Manila and a myriad of places as far as Mount Pinatubo. He then added his favorite art pieces made by friends---complemented by his own touches of design brilliance around the apartment. The result is an inspired dwelling befitting a creative individual who believes that “Beautiful things inspire you to create more.”
