One more reason to go to cebu..

Delphine Groult.
I first learned of her work from my former professor at PSID. She was showing us pictures of a supplier she was raving about and when I saw the pictures, I couldn't believe we can actually get those here. There were so cute, so adorable so kitschy.

She comes from a family of artists in France and moved to the Philippines around 2006 where she decided to stay and set up shop. She loves to restore solid wood pieces and called her first collection "Haute Couture". Her trademark is putting bright colors on period furniture making them really charming pieces that are definitely unique.

so pretty and girly and whimsical

This british inspired console is on display at ac 632, Greenbelt 5.

My first stop when I visit next year for the Sinulog festival


For those of you who are lucky enough to be living there already, her store is located at the Paz realty building, A.S. Fortuna street, mandaue city. +63 32 238 78 03.

C+C headquarters

My partner and I formed our own interior design company C+C and decided to put up shop at his place. We wanted it to have that modern and industrial feel with a touch of quirk. This project took us around three months to complete and it was our first time to play around with cement flooring. It was also the first time for our contractor... she was really nervous about doing it..

Haha Good thing it turned out well eventhough we had to repeat some of the areas because the outcome was too dark. We love the final result!
We had a fun time scouting for furniture as well and found some hidden shops and new suppliers along the way.

We got these Philippe Starck La Marie chairs paired with a table we found at Concept Specialist. The table is actually a conference table but it works. Our former professor made our sofa and we got the beanbag from marketmarket. I love the tinted mirrors. We used them also in the master bedroom. Our blinds originally were wood finish but the admin office requires all window treatment to be white and thats when we decided to buy this white dvd cabinet.

This is an ikea cabinet distributed by Mobler. We got this from their makati branch although they also have a store in Greenhills on Wilson street. They're currently on sale until Dec. 2. fyi.

And ta-dah! Our office! complete with the mini spidermans! and other toys. Graver was our grafitti artist. We just wanted the office to give out that playful and young feel and just make it fun fun fun. check out more of our office pics at and if you can grab a hold of MetroHome's October Issue, our office is being featured there. (shameless plugging).

So there. I got my dream office. My next project is to build my dream home.
