RL Picks: Classic-Quirky Wall Accents

Decorate your place with pieces that are full of character


Drawings and one-of-a-kind decor pieces add personality to any space. If you're considering new decor must-haves for your space, let these handpicked items inspire you.

To find the same pieces or something similar, make sure you drop by AC+632, Debenhams, and Resurrection Furniture and Found Objects Gallery.

Jules Dacanay, director and writer, shares this tip when choosing pieces with character: "When it comes to bric-a-bracs, my rule of thumb is simple: go for something fascinating and grotesque, something that will stir the imagination and scare the hell out of your nephews and nieces."

Picks by Dagny Madamba, Paula de Guzman, and Tala Singson. Photographed by Dairy Darilag and Dakila Angeles.
