If you will look at actress Iza Calzado’s former house in Quezon City and the condo unit she lives in now, it’s easy to spot a few similarities. Both havens showcase a mix of modern must-haves, captivating accent pieces, and an envy-worthy sophisticated feel. To achieve the look she wanted for her unit, Iza worked with interior decorator Nix Alanon and the FTADesign Team.


Her living area is a sight to behold—with its huge windows that add to the airy feel, comfy seating pieces, and the neutral colors that add to the elegant vibe. Some of the furniture and accessories showcased in Iza’s condo unit are from PhoeNix Home, the designer's own collection of furniture designs and décor. Whether you’re looking for a style peg or pieces to invest in for your space, here are picks worth checking out inspired by Iza’s lovely living area:

1. This comfy, beige-gray sofa is timeless and modern at the same time.
