City living gets a personal touch

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

Filipino homes, particularly in urban areas, 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 styled living spaces inspired by their passions and pursuits.

From Aug. 15 to 23 at the mall’s Grand Atrium in the Main Wing, mall guests saw the display and were inspired by the 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 the individual interests of the celebritiies using selections from the Shang’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.”
