I like using this blog to update on the progress of my projects (and also while waiting my 3D files to render). You see, some projects takes quite a long time to finish (w/c makes us impatient) so I take as much photos of the progress instead, to see how each is progressing.

Anyway, this particular one is for the bedroom renovations I've done in an old townhouse in New Manila. We only did the two bedrooms (and bath) since we have a very limited time to work (during the kid's summer break). We are still not done with some furniture since my client wants to shop for themselves :)

(for a seven and nine year old girls :)

 The curtains there holds as a barrier since the air-condition is placed in front of the beds. We can't replace it anymore since there is a builder's regulation in the community, and they're not allowed to tear anything structurally that may affect the facade of the house. I've posted my perspective for this room here, and this is what's happening :)
  I did some alterations in the color scheme since my client fell in love with this wallpaper i showed them...

This was not in the perspective, but we added a divider wall on the left side of the room to limit once again, the air-condition blow. There are curtain dividers to separate this semi-hang out corner (note that the beddings, curtains, and new furniture/ sofa bed hasn't arrived yet in this photo).

 The study desk for two girls, which i'm really excited to style soon!


We re-tiled everything from floor to ceiling, and since my client wants an almost all-white bathroom interior, I played with the ceiling, lighting and patterns of tiles instead :) 

(for a fourteen year old girl :)

 Now this is the smaller of the two rooms, so we decided to make it into the achie's (or oldest's) bedroom. Its cute that all three girls almost have the same tastes in interiors, so when achie saw the alcove for the two girls, she also wants for herself :)
I have to say, as much as I want to veer away alcoves for now since I've done it quite a few times in my perspectives (will show in the future), its still one of my favorite elements! And some of my clients would also ask for the exact same thing in their home - so I just make sure to edit.
 and here it is last time I saw it :) Again, the beddings, the curtains, side tables, and chairs haven't arrived yet.

 This wallpaper is also one of favorite :)

I didn't took a before photo of the bathroom here since I know we will change everything in it, but it pretty much looks like the same as the other two girl's bathroom :)

Again, since they wanted their tiles to be all-white, I just played around the textures and ceiling :)
All bathrooms have their closets installed inside. Still waiting for the glass to be installed, the mirror is temporary (re-used the old one) for now - I can't wait to style these rooms! :)

Places: Stacy's

you know you're getting older when you frequently have brunch with friends 
than late night partying... :)  
so yes,  i started Saturday with brunch, which was a total effort in my case cos i normally sleep at 2-4 in the morning. (i know, i need to limit my fb, youtube, & blogger addiction in order to sleep earlier *pfft*)
good thing the place my friend picked was pretty decent and relaxing... 

it's like an extension to my room and is a smaller version of Memory Lane in Tagaytay. 

The interior is very light & shabby chic, i think it was the Heima group who did the interior 
of this place, cos some of the items are very similar/familiar to the store.
and don't you just loooove that pink SMEG fridge at the background? aaah i would want to have one of those in my house! if budget permits lol. its way too expensive for me now.
how the Philippines GOT SO INTO cottage style/ shabby chic interiors i don't know. 
it fits my personal taste for now, so i'm not complaining :) 
but i hope i don't get tired with the look, since more and more shops are looking the same way now... :)

have a great weekend!
nappy time :)

Exhibit Progress. Week 3 ++

whew! i can't believe it's almost a month now since the start of construction. we started working in this venue that was originally a warehouse/ storage house and now the progress is unbelievable! anyway, back to our booth...

as i've mentioned before, the theme of our exhibit is Sustainability.
and we're assigned to create a Dining Room that is 60-80% made of Plastic!

i know right?

but here's the progress so far :)
 i'm really happy how the mural has turned out :) it's so refreshing, and the logs i think fits perfectly too. we're trying to create a space that doesn't literally look like "the plastic booth", we want people to stop and guess for a while what our booth theme is.

so we made our design, Earth Friendly - Nature Inspired, to contradict how plastics are perceived as something that kills the planet earth slowly... mmm
and having installed these ceiling design made of PVC is actually a breather... YEAH. its THAT crucial you.could.kill.yourself.anytime. :p


wait for it.... :)

Chinese Wedding Reception Area

my cousin & cousin-in-law arranged this setting for our friend's wedding reception/waiting area. i love how they mixed elegance through porcelain with the free-spirited flowers and craft papers.
the antique dresser/console is from the bride's home.
dimsum and takeaways anyone? :)
pre-nup pictures of the couples
 Suy folded each and every fortune cookie for the guests to pick during registration. Some revealed prizes :) There's also a crossword puzzle for guests to fill up while waiting for the event to start, and of course, colorful pencils :)
we just love styling for events & parties :)


more on Table Setting

Flea market finds

some items i scored for only Php500 (USD11.30) in total :) 

yes, some luck i had from being stuck in the heavy rain... i was caught standing for more than 40minutes (inside a small tent along the street who sells wooden carved items) because my car's parked in the other block!
the weather was crazy! but i can't be more than happy with the good deal :)

1. the deer
this is so cute! i'm planning to paint this and use it as a lamp stand :) ala J. Adler style :)

2. the horse
if you knew me personally, you'll know that i have this horse (sculpture) fetish... :) been wanting to have one of those since one of my trips in China, but it was too expensive! i'm realllly happy to get this at a bargain!

3. the tray
 this tray is perfect on its own. i want to use this as a tray table :) and/or probably place a mirror inside too

4. carved "seaside"
trust me, i've already washed this couple of times already! i'll be hanging this in my bathroom after painting, maybe :)

so yeah, everything you see here were all drenched with (rain)water that night... my mom was really annoyed cos she said i brought home trash. LOL
