City living with a personal touch

Personalization is a non-negotiable these days, especially when it comes to our living spaces. They’re made to reflect what the people who live in them love and are better suited to their lifestyle.

Filipino homes in the metro are no exception, having come a long way from their traditional design and function to adapt to the hustle and bustle of city living.

This year, Shangri-La Plaza’s Urban Filipino Home exhibit showcased the vibrant character and creativity of personalities from different fields as they style living spaces inspired by their passions and pursuits.

Last August 15 to 23, mall guests were able to visit the different displays at the Grand Atrium, Main Wing which featured inspiring aesthetics of fashion icons Rajo Laurel and Jappy Gonzales, interior designer Jie Pambid, musicians Karylle Yuzon and Jed Madela, lifestyle columnist Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, TV personalities Tintin and Julius Babao, PBA courtside reporter Apple David, and Xandra Ramos-Padilla of National Bookstore and Anvil Publishing House.

Each designer’s space was curated to embody their individual interests using selections from Shangri-La Mall’s very own lifestyle brands.

“Here at the Shang, we’re all about helping you live out your dream lifestyle,” says Shangri-La Plaza Executive Vice President and General Manager Lala Fojas. “After the first home exhibit we held two years ago, we wanted to continue inspiring our guests to create spaces that they feel are truly theirs.”

The featured stylists selected items to furnish their spaces from brands Bo Concept, Luxe Room, Sheridan, Rustan’s Department Store, Steltz Lighting, Restoration, Tempur, Design Pod, Sealy, La-Z Boy, Shelter, Ego Italiano, La Sedia, Ariston, GE Monogram, Hacker, True Value, Ashley Furniture, Simmons Gallery, Blims, Slumberland, and Shell Canvas.
