We can't emphasize it enough: inspiration can strike anytime, anywhere. That's probably why when you're out shopping, you don't just get new outfits—you get to take home a few design ideas, too. If you still can't finalize what style to go with for your haven, let these four chic retail spaces guide and inspire you. 

Happy Skin Headquarters 

Technically, the Happy Skin HQ isn't a retail space—however, it's still a great peg for those who are into bold yet feminine styles. They are not afraid to use contrasting shades and combining it with softer details. If you're just starting to introduce color to your home, inejct hints of it with bright throw pillows or an eye-catching accent chair. 

Katre Chic Leather Goods  

Inspired by the beautiful city of London, Katre is a gold mine of design ideas for the fashion girl as it is all about individuality. Revamping your walk-in closet? Breathe life into your minimalist-inspired space with eclectic details like animal print, intricate lighting, and accent walls. 

Katre Chic Leather Goods is located at 1/F ATC Bldg., 148 Katipunan Ext., St. Ignatius, Quezon City. Call them at 0916-605-2207 or shop online at

POSH Pocket Shoes 

If you're working with a limited room, you can learn a few things from the POSH showroom. To establish the different parts of your home, consider investing in glass partitions to separate the spaces. Open shelving and tall mirrors also help create the illusion of a bigger area.

Want to get your hands on a pair of two of POSH Pocket Shoes? You can order through poshpocketshoes[at] or call 0917-898-7674. 

Renegade Folk 

No room for a proper shoe rack? No problem. Renegade Folk's unconventional shoe storage can give you ideas on how you can work around with what you have—from hanging pairs on shoe lasts to repurposing garage ladders, they have it here!

Renegade Folk is located at 3/L Linear Bldg., 142 Katipunan Avenue, White Plains, Quezon City. For more details, check out
