We’re at that point in the year where we check off our Christmas lists to show our loved ones how much we appreciate them. Still, there are certain gifts that go long and strong, give comfort, and add benefit to those beyond their sole recipient. Namely, the gifts we give our own home. By gifting our humble abodes, the people literally closest to us can revel in cozy spaces that offer the best sense of welcome.
A comfortable distance from Rockwell Primaries’s The Vantage at Kapitolyo is the best one-stop gifting shop for our units: Robins Design Center along Meralco Avenue. A hub for home furnishings, Robins assembles stores and studios that specialize in smart, sophisticated interiors.
For more versatile pieces that run the gamut of baby room to entertainment den, Perch presents many a bold, well-rounded statement to anchor each space. Design accents and home accessories are covered by La Maison Deco, which includes cleverly patterned area rugs, eclectic throw pillows, and the occasional terrarium to bring a pop of green into living rooms. Shedding a distinctive kind of light to lighting fixtures is Schema, home of hanging and standing lamps that serve as conversation pieces (their honeycomb design is a Start favorite). Even walls can talk—and eloquently so—through the Designery, a studio that specializes in customizing everything from wallpaper to wood panels with a cheeky twist.
With a diverse range of design options for the modern condo unit, there are countless ways to grant your special place a new look for the New Year. A quick drive from the Vantage, it won’t be long before the family is relaxing into a refreshed and redesigned home for the holidays.
