I LOVE interior design BUT I’m coming clean. I hate doing the Construction Phase of it. So much for my intensive training, Interior Design degree and honors. Haha!

You can read about my experience in PSID , here: Life as an Mommy Interior Design Student

But… BUT I must say that I’m actually using alot of the things I learned from interior design school. PSID was INTENSE and has trained my eye well. I just really really try to delay going to the construction site until it’s close to the Finishing Phase ~ even for our house! 🤦🏻‍♀️

Personally, I view a space like how I would visualize a person. A person’s style speaks for them. And that’s why I think it’s very important that a space has character!

A person with Interior Design background knows that the “personality” of a space is crucial. It is achieved through the details like finishing choices, material selection, different textures, symmetry, assymetry, an interplay of various heights, furniture selection etc. and making it all compliment eachother.

But I guess the big question is:  How can a person with no interior design background or someone who doesn’t want to hire a professional Interior Designer add more “character” to a furnished space?

The answer is relatively simple. It’s all about the details. Just Accessorize!!!

Yesterday I made my way to Global View is Vertis North, Quezon City.

From the door, I already spotted a coffee table that I fancy.

DE638AF5-DA65-493E-A49D-534756CAE495

It’s a cross between a bottle cap of the old Coke Cola and a part of a car. Too cool, right?!

Fun, quirky and ecclectic. I’m not fond of whimsical designs or color BUT I do appreciate the unique shapes, mix of textures and the interplay of metals. Check out what I spotted from accross the room…

A white cowhide with gold trim mirror. Ugh, it’s stunning!!!
