Original Article: Bubbles Salvador Photography: Paolo Feliciano Styling: Dagny Madamba and Tala Singson

In 2007, homeowner Dino Romano moved into a space his family once used as an office and bodega space. Although he was not formally trained in interior design, he was able to recreate the look of a 1970s home by reading magazines and surfing the Internet. He furnished the bungalow with pieces from Evangelista St. in Makati, Restoration, Space Encounters, Dimensione, SM Home, and Our Home.

If you also love the look of retro, vintage-inspired spaces, check out these interesting furniture and accessories.
