MT Casa at Heima Brixton

After a super awesome lunch at Project Pie with some friends, we had an instant side trip to Heima Brixton.

I have always loved Heima eversince I have spotted their fun and lovely furniture from Real Living magazines, and from Kamiseta shops and Vanilla Bakery.

Good thing we still caught the MT Spaces Exhibit for the launch of MT Casa products that are now available at Heima. This was participated by Real Living Magazine, Everywhere we Shoot, Carina Santos and The Googly Gooeys.

Here's a closer look of the colorful pieces in the exhibit. Everyone did a great job with the decorating using MT Casa's famous washi tapes but my favorite one would be from Googly Gooeys. For me, it's more vibrant, it is filled with lots of interesting items and I loved it's 'homey' vibe.

At Heima, you can also find good books about art, interiors and decorating.

 Love artsy stuff? They have a wide collection of wall art, postcards, wrappers and colorful washi tapes from MT Casa.

You will also find quirky and vintage items that collectors would surely appreciate.

My dream home would definitely be filled with Heima items. Their classic style with the right pop of color would surely turn any dull area to WOW!

 Visit Heima Brixton at Unit 103, Three Brixton Bldg. #3 Brixton St. Brgy Kapitolyo Pasig City
They are open Mondays to Saturdays 10am to 7pm. You can also call them at 5017588 for inquiries.
Check out their website for their other branches.

Yap-Sandiego House

In my last trip to Cebu (which I only had 2days) I visited a lot of historical landmarks such as Fort San Pedro, Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino and Magellan's cross .
One of my favorite spots is this old house near the Cebu Heritage Monument which is known as the Yap-Sandiego House. We all know that Cebu has now progressed to a very modern city but the owner of this house maintained this home just how it was built in 17th century.

I’m sure you’ve seen old houses in history books or in movies but not the furniture and interiors in full detail. I was amazed to see how they were able to maintain the old structures and that they still have century old pieces.
Just like in our own home, they also have this open lanai in the middle of the house.
Since Christianity was introduced in Cebu, religious statues and altars became an important part of every home.
You will notice in their furniture how carved wood was a prevalent design. Also, back in the days when there were no faucets or water outlets, they kept big jars and bottles to store their water which I think conserved more energy.

They have huge chairs by the window and they even have a harp.They have huge windows to get more light and air.

They kept the old design of the "Tisa" clay roof and Balayong wood. Since it was raining that time, I think I didn't see any leaks so I think the one who restored it did a great job.
They have "sungka" which is a known game back in the days (and which I'm terrible at). Their lamps and lightings were all huge and fragile.
This is their beautiful garden on one rainy Saturday morning.

My ghostly image in their old mirror with the sun's reflection.Good thing I'm not wearing white=P
Their vintage dining set is still in place.
I was surprised that most of their religious statues were also in the bedroom. Since it was quite dark inside the room, this creeped me out a little bit. =P

I had a few moments to reminisce, relax and breathe while waiting for the rain to subside.
This ancestral house is located at 155-Lopez Jaena corner Mabini Street, Parian District in Cebu, Phil.
Watch out since I'll be posting my favorite Cebu food stops soon =)

Sneaky Sneaky

I would love to have this in my room being the sneaky person that I am (hihihi =P)

A perfect place to store my journals, my artsy stuff, old photo albums, scrapbooks and letters.

No more tangled cords, no phone slip ups and no charger stealers (haha)  

Shy (our dog) could have a spot in our room yey!

Mirror, mirror on the wall plus a hidden treasure chest of neatly hanged accessories =) 

Isn't this neat? Your room would not look overstuffed because everything is hidden.
