FOUNDER & PRINCIPAL DESIGNER
“Interior Design should mediate the Architecture and environment of the place, personal theme and lifestyle of our clients. The overall ambiance of our designs should exude strong and expressive aesthetic value that will create a tailored fit design for our clients with discerning taste.”
Manila-based Interior Designer and fashion and art enthusiast Christine Manalo-Villamora is celebrated by the design community for her contemporary and chic aesthetic in her interiors. Merging her passion in Interior Design and Fashion Design, the former ramp model wants to develop a design collection (just like creating a fashion collection) that will echo into her interiors throughout the year. A certain theme and concept that will inspire the whole look of her projects for the entire year and will innovate it to fit her client’s lifestyle and budget. Her design heroes include Monique Lhuillier, Michael Cinco and Victoria Beckham.
After graduating from Polytechnic University of the Philippines in 2006 and passing the Interior Design licensure exam in 2008, Christine began her career in designing luxury interiors for Thunderbird Resorts and flagship stores for VMV Hypoallergenics. After many years of learning from design legends IDr. Ogie Periquet, Arch. Joel Songsong and IDr. Nina Santamaria, Christine recently launched her own design company in April 2014. Her company specializes in high-end residential, condo-units, restaurants and hospitality projects with highlights of contemporary interior design for the well-travel, always upgrading lifestyles of modern-day Filipino.
Months before she registered her own design company, Christine was featured in the pages of Arkitektura Magazine’s March 2014 issue and that became her go signal to turn her passion into a growing business venture.

CREATIVE DIRECTOR & LEAD DESIGNER
“Being in the Interior Design industry enables me to hone my character and attitude as a Designer. Interior Design is not an easy job, you change the way how people live and you give them the best possible lifestyle upgrade they deserve. Different personalities, different needs—one unique character. Every client has a story, every project is a challenge.”

“Serving the UST CFAD community has played a big part in my life. From being a Staffer to being an Executive Coordinator to PRO. I have learned many things and I have overcome many challenges along the journey. This taught me how to overcome challenges at work and manage our ongoing projects”.
Rikah is an interior design graduate from UST. Having Rikah on the team makes a huge difference. Our team and clients are continually impressed by the results she produces. She plays a crucial role in our company’s success.

Mikha graduated from UST with a degree in Interior Design. The pride she takes in her work is truly inspiring. Our team and clients were blown away by her contributions and results.
“Managing and developing new ideas for a design company is challenging and exciting, particularly in Sales Coordination and overall Business Development. It enables me to learn, experience and address problems. The thing I love the most about business development is forming relationships that provide value to the clients. The business is not just about the results and profitability, having an ambitious and aggressive nature is certainly a prerequisite. It is also about trust, knowledge and engagement within the societies we serve.”

Interior Designer —as a profession
A vocation or occupation requiring advanced training in some liberal art or science and usually involving mental rather that manual work
—– Webster’s New World Dictionary
A professional Interior Designer is one who is qualified by education and experience to identify research and creatively solve problems relatively to the function and quality of man’s proximate environment. Her competency includes fundamental design, design analysis, space planning and programming, the design of all interior spaces and an understanding of other and related aspects of environmental design. The designer does not usually stop at giving advice or producing drawings for interiors, but goes on to assume the responsibility for translating those ideas and drawing into tangible reality: specifying, ordering, and installing a huge volume of goods and services.
