Thanks to the rise of furniture retailers in Manila, house décor and accessories are made readily accessible to help you achieve whatever your desired look for your own space is. The trick is to mix and match—kind of what you do when you dress up, really.
Imagine stepping into a bohemian living room, which is just a few steps away from the renaissance-themed dining area. Lend your own signature spin to every nook in your house.
Below are a few stores that can help you attain your desired look, according to theme.
The Preppy Living Room
Geared towards yuppies, Brooklyn-based interior retailer West Elm creates urban and modern home furnishings. Their key pieces right now follow a vibrant and upbeat trend perfect for young urbanites. And if interior refurbishing isn’t up your alley, they have a Design Lab where customers can do complimentary consultations.
West Elm. G/F, Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
The Rustic Bedroom
H&M Home seems to perfect this look through wooden fixtures and giving them a redux by mixing them with industrial pieces (say, a stainless lamp). From a map-printed comforter to coffee-stained headboards, achieve the vibe of rustic mornings.
Muji. 4/F, Shangri-La Mall East Wing, EDSA corner Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. For more information, visit their website.
The Classic Kitchen
A classic, almost traditional kitchen with Crate & Barrel fixtures can now be home to tried-and-tested family recipes. Whether you’re going for something thematic or palette-based, the store holds fort to trusted pieces.
Crate & Barrel. 3/F, SM Mega Fashion Hall, EDSA, Mandaluyong City. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
The Country Dining Room
If you are to make a dining area with a sophisticated suburban spin in mind, Pottery Barn can help you out. They have pieces reminiscent of your long forgotten country songs: wooden baskets, glass juice pitchers, classic table napkins, and all.
Pottery Barn. G/F, Central Square, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig. For more information, visit their website.
