It’s always been a dream of mine to finally be able to move out and have my own space. I’ve been dreaming about it since I was a little girl (LOL) and have been doing so for the past few weeks again (LOL!!). So it really was good timing for me to be invited to moodboardMANILA‘s Discussions on Interiors & Lifestyle with Cat Arambulo. 🙂
The short but sweet workshop was held at La Creperie in Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City. I have never been here before but it was quite a unique space! There are a lot of interesting nooks and crannies, haha!
Anyway, we all know that creating your own space really involves a lot of yourself! It’s a place that you’ll come home to every day and where else would you want to feel more you, right?
“When you talk about your space, it’s all about you. It’s about your personality,” Cat shared, as she presented how an individual’s preference over fashion, colors, patterns, and elements bled into the aesthetics of his or her interior design.
Cat not only shared how spaces change and evolve depending on who lives there but also some of the more popular trends that have been circulating in the world of interior design.
“Marble is always in, and so is mixing and matching textures, like corduroy mixed with leather,” Cat shared. “You can even do five different textures in one color. Put in something silky, something leathery, suede, something fluffy. It creates more drama and character that way.”
To drive the points home, moodboardMANILA’s in-house interior designer Kristel Poyaoan also gave pointers on how the design agency has kept their clients happy with their work.
“You need to, at least, have a sense of what appeals to them, what they respond to, and why,” she explained. “Rules & trends can inspire but at the end of the day your space is supposed to be a unique reflection of who you are.”
All in all, it was a very informative event! I took a quiz to determine what was my personal aesthetic and mine mixed between minimalist and industrial, LOL! I guess my monochromatic wardrobe and preference for muted & dark colors says a lot, hehe. 🙂
Also saw fellow blogger and geek friend, Duane Bacon, HAHA! His style was more minimalist, I think? Hi Duane! 🙂
