I am your friendly neighborhood Gal at Home, but my friends and loved ones call me Camyl. 😋
I have always loved seeing other people’s spaces and how they make it work for their own unique lifestyles and preferences. There’s always something new to learn with how people make 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘪𝘳 homes work 𝘧𝘰𝘳 them.
But I’m well aware that there are other people who look at their own spaces and draw a blank when it comes to how they should arrange their furniture, how they should style their surfaces, how they should decorate their spaces.
This is why I went into this business: To help exactly those people who don’t know what to do with their own spaces. I want to help you see your home with fresh eyes. To help you embrace the uniqueness of your home situation. To give you ideas on how to assess your space, plan it correctly, and style it accordingly.
I love helping people refresh their homes, through home styling and interior design techniques I apply in my own home, and in many of my design projects.
My design roots
Ever since I was young, I’ve always enjoyed visiting other people’s homes and seeing the unique, quirky, and creative ways they’ve made spaces all their own.
Growing up, my mother has always made our home “well-dressed,” so to speak. Our house was perfect for our family of five—lots of windows for sunlight, a huge yard to run and have parties in, a library where we could have our fill of books (and tbh, TV and toys, ha!), and a big living room filled with music, laughter, and love.
I love that house. I miss that house.
I want to create that same kind of feeling, a similar kind of home, for you.
I know what it means to want such a home for our families. My own home now is far from perfect, but my husband and kids tell me they love it—and that’s what matters.
My background in communications and design
Before becoming an interior stylist, I spent years in corporate communications, events coordination, content marketing, and more notably, in magazine publishing.
As an editor for Cosmopolitan Philippines and Working Mom, and a contributing writer for Real Living, Good Housekeeping, Mega, and Manila Bulletin Lifestyle, among many others, I styled sets, photo shoots, and even homes.
This led me to cultivate my love for design, prompting me to take up a few courses at the Philippine School of Interior Design.
I’ve since finished a Certificate in Interior Design from the New York Institute of Art and Design. Currently, I’m working on obtaining my Residential Interior Design Qualifying Certification (RIDQC) with the Designer Society of America.
Fixing up residential interior spaces excites me, more so when I see my clients enjoy their newly decorated homes. It always brings me back to the warm, fuzzy feeling of being in my own childhood home, and all the wonderful memories we created in it.
I hope to be able to do the same for you.
