Have you ever wondered how a celebrated fashion designer would decorate his own home? Fashion designer Frederick Peralta showed us how he furnished and styled his personal sanctuary in Quezon City.
Frederick used to live in a three-door apartment that was already featured in the August 2006 issue of Real Living. Now, he has moved into a 1950s-style quadruplex that he filled with antique Filipino furniture pieces. To add sparkle and shine to the rooms, he brought in mirrors, crystals, and decor with metallic finishes.

The carved wooden details surrounding the front door makes this entrance seem more interesting. The rustic floor tiles add more color to the open area.
The living area is furnished with a wooden door converted into a wall mirror! On both sides of the wall mirror are floor lamps and antique cabinets.
Frederick also purchased black-and-white fabric from Kamuning that he turned into throw pillows for his modern sofa.
The wooden cabinet beside the door-turned-mirror is adorned with a distinctive head piece displayed on a mannequin bust. According to Frederick, the head piece is a gift from a former Ms. Earth candidate who borrowed a gown from him.
The six-seater dining table used to serve as Frederick's work desk! It now holds a place of honor in his dining area.
A plain wooden bench near the staircase serves as another seat for friends and relatives.
A mannequin wearing one of Frederick's latest creations seems to welcome guests to the second floor of the Filipino house.
Frederick used another dining table as his work desk! Beside it is a seven-foot mirror surrounded by lights and a wooden platform — the perfect spot for his clients to try on his gowns.
On the other side of his work desk is an antique cabinet with intricate carvings.
Since the home office is a place for entertaining clients, Frederick brought in a cozy and comfortable sofa. Above the black seat is an abstract painting by artist Doltz Pilar.
The space beside the bed has been turned into a small area for prayer, worship, and reflection.
The homeowner has a line of bed linens for SM Home called Canadian Beddings by Frederick Peralta. These bed sheets make his own bed feel soft, plush, and luxurious.
Across the bed is his wooden cabinet and a wooden bin with solihiya detail used as a clothes hamper.
White paint and bathroom fixtures make this space feel calm and relaxing!
