After typhoon Ondoy devastated the country, homeowner Diolina moved out of her old home in a flood-prone location and into a new condo unit. Located on the fifth floor of a residential building, the space was clean and clutter-free but it did not have a unified look.

In giving the area a makeover, interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino was inspired by the beauty of the spring season. “When I hear of spring, I think of something refreshing, a new start, hope, breeze, and air. It’s a feeling as though you are walking outdoors, relaxing in a garden abundant with space to move around, fresh air to breath, and a time to simply ‘breath and enjoy,’” she shares.
