Did You Know That Maxine Medina Was An Interior Design Student?
Our beauty queen belongs to PSID’s Class of 2014
You’ve heard it during the show earlier and perhaps during the preliminary competition, too—Miss Philippines Maxine Medina studied interior design and graduated in 2014 from the Philippine School of Interior Design.
Aside from working as a model, the beauty queen has always been vocal about her passion for creating spaces—as seen in the nooks we’ve discovered on her Instagram account. As we celebrate Maxine’s stellar performance in the recently concluded pageant, we’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane to check out her graduating exhibit:
The Globalscapes exhibit featured booths inspired by the architecture and culture of different countries. From Australia and Brazil, to Cambodia and Cuba—the spaces gave visitors a visual trip around the world. Maxine was part of a group assigned to Mexico. Given the country’s vibrant culture, the Mexico booth featured bold colors, striking patterns, and a mural that the students also did on their own.
From the rendering, one can already appreciate the play of colors and patterns envisioned for the space. The ceiling alone is enough to wow visitors—with the use of acrylic, lines, and lighting.
Maxine even shared how they finished the booth on her Instagram account:
To complete the walls of the booth, Maxine's team was able to work with artist Alfred Galvez.
To say that the booth is a labor of love is an understatement, as aside from the murals, the members also worked on the tiles and the works of art displayed on the walls.
Curious as to how the booth turned out? Flawless, of course!
The overall mood turned out warm and cozy—with the colors, artwork, and lighting working together to evoke a Mexican appeal. See the chair at the foreground? It highlights interlaced fabrics in captivating colors that truly stand out.
We'd like to congratulate Maxine for a job well done! With a graduating exhibit like this, we can only expect nothing but more beautiful spaces designed by this stunner. Not only is she confidently beautiful in her own right, she definitely has an eye for visually arresting spaces, too.
