The transition of my life as a fashion stylist to dabbling into the world of interior design has been challenging but fruitful. I literally limited my life to staying home with my family (working on interior design plates and studying for exams) to shuffling back and forth to the Philippine School of Interior Design to work on even more plates – 2 straight years. I had no social life and was isolated from the rest of the world. It was tough but now I can say that it was sooooooo worth it!
One fine day, I got a call from Maite Tamparong-Uy, publisher of One Mega Group. She invited me to be a guest editor for the April 2014 issue of My Home Magazine. Of course I was ecstatic and said YES! The offer of becoming a guest editor for an interior design magazine couldn’t have come at a better time. The position gave me confidence and made me feel like I was on the right track. It was an amazing feeling to know that my work as a budding interior designer was slowly being recognized.
To kick off the magazine’s new direction and to introduce the new guest editors, My Home Magazine hosted an 80’s themed party – My Home Classics in Aracama. Vignettes curated by renowned interior designers Cynthia and Ivy Almario gave the venue a more “Home-y” touch.
The night was short and sweet. I was so excited to start writing my editor’s note and couldn’t wait until the issue was out and available on the news stands!
