My picks for a contemporary Scandinavian home

Been working on a project where my client requested for super-clean, dust-proof, easy-to-maintain interiors. Since I have been favoring Scandinavian design lately, I recommended we go for a contemporary Scandinavian look—its palette of warm neutrals and bright and airy aesthetic are perfect for the kind of lifestyle and environment he wants to live in. Luckily, his condo's finishes already… Continue reading My picks for a contemporary Scandinavian home

What’s been up (or down)

Hi. Remember me? Yup, that's me on the right. Cutie on the left is taken, sorry. I knew last year in blogging (for me) was bad, but so far, 2016 has been the worst. (Not that I've been in the blogosphere for ages or anything, but anyway.) I've been away for far too long—six months too… Continue reading What’s been up (or down)

How to Repaint & Reupholster Your Store-Bought Dining Set

We sold off our old, rectangular, Wengge-finish, 4-seater dining set last week, and as soon as that set was loaded onto our buyer's pickup truck, I couldn't help but breathe a sigh of relief.   For years, I've lived with that dining set (inherited from our in-laws' house) knowing that it was just too, well,… Continue reading How to Repaint & Reupholster Your Store-Bought Dining Set

Designing a coffee cart for a coffee mix brand

HUH. So I wrote this entry a week ago, and forgot to publish it. TYPICAL ME. Anyway, here goes. ------------- A coffee cart isn't exactly a home project, but I love the way this project turned out so much that I want to share this here. Besides, I'd like to think that I was able to use… Continue reading Designing a coffee cart for a coffee mix brand

Phew. Am exhausted. (Oh and a color palette.)

So. Hi. I just wanted to check in here because I've been feeling quite disappointed with myself that I haven't been blogging as I'd dreamed I would be. Sometimes I wonder what all those supermom-bloggers do to be able to make all those super-hyper-advanced-carpentry types of home projects, and blog, and live a life. Okay so that was… Continue reading Phew. Am exhausted. (Oh and a color palette.)

Gal at Home at Real Living Space 2015

Got any plans this long weekend? I'd highly recommend a visit to Real Living Space 2015, happening over at the official showroom of the Avida Towers Centera, Reliance corner Mayflower Streets, Mandaluyong City. I'd actually been busy on this event this past week, despite a bad cough, because I was invited to style the lobby… Continue reading Gal at Home at Real Living Space 2015

House tour!

I just realized while thinking of what to post today that I haven't made a proper house tour since I started this blog. So here's my attempt at showing you some of the rooms in our townhouse. The bedrooms are pretty small since the lot area is only around 53 square meters, but we do… Continue reading House tour!

How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Remember when I tried styling my home office shelves several ways, but wasn't quite happy with the results of my labor? I think I've finally styled them in a way that I find satisfying. If you don't remember, these are the different permutations of what my home office shelves looked like before. First they looked like this: Then, I… Continue reading How I (finally) styled my home office shelves (part 2)

Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party

Just recently, I accepted a project on styling a Hollywood glamour-themed debut (my sister's events company, Pink Sunshine Events, did the events coordination for it). The budget was pretty tight as the debutante had only decided to hire an events stylist a few weeks before the big day. She basically asked me to improve on the decor… Continue reading Event styling: Glamour-themed 18th birthday party
