Design Q + A: Movie Inspired Home Office

CMV Design Q+A

“I always imagine my home office would look like the same as Don Corleone’s office at The Godfather movie. How can I get that look? Any ideas?”

CMV Design Team:

We love that movie! We think that the style and the overall ambiance of that office is still applicable up to this day. For this home office, we highly suggest to use rich tones of color like dark brown, deep red and dark blue. You may also consider using chesterfield sofa or same tufted arm chair like on this mood board. To complete the look, you may also try to visit some thrift/ antique stores near Dapitan Sampaloc to source and buy same table lamps and accessories.

Design Q + A: Chic Home Office

CMV Design Q+A

“I want to set up my home office and I want it to look chic, comfy and classy. How can I achieve that look?”

CMV Design Team:

Let’s start with pastel colors to create inviting vibe and since you will be working on this room for 6-8 long hours we also suggest to use tufted and upholstered seat as office chair. To create chic and classical look, we propose to use accent pieces with gold details, salmon pink area rug and some crystal chandeliers.

CMV Design Team 6th Year Anniversary


It’s been a rough month for most of us and for small business owners like myself. I will be completely dishonest if I will tell our colleagues, design team, followers and to people that we outsource that I wasn’t worried or disturbed at all. It has been difficult for me to continue to post and promote our business in a situation where irrelevant services or non essential products were not priority right now (maybe in 3-9 months from now who knows when?). I am worried about our cashflow, business operation expenses and how can we continue to provide for our employees. All these negativity have been clouding my mind since our government decided to implement our community lock down and shutting down massive transportation and private services.

And then I said to myself “well, do what makes you happy” and yeah… sketching and designing makes me happy! Then I started to pick up my sketch pad and pen again. Do what makes you feel happy and alive! I know it’s been rough, dry and it’s hard to be optimistic now but we need to keep on trying and take the right next steps.. little by little until one day when we look back, we are very far from the disruption that we experienced today.

Major Throwback Alert!

from 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020

2014: Clueless, fearless and driven. I guess most young entrepreneurs are like that. At 30’s, we are young enough to try new things but old enough to handle “adulting 101” situations.

2014: I continuously wing it BUT with thorough research (business books and online articles) and set up my service/ virtual office at a prime location in Bonifacio Global City #smarterbusiness #workhardstayhumble

2015: Then, there’s Rose, the 2ND AVENGER este… design team member!

2016: I’m soo pregnant and when I became a mom, that changes everything. I feel so inspired to work and to grow our business. Flexible working hours is my priority and perks.

2017: With the whole design team, this is our 1st Design Exhibit at iBUILD Manila World Trade Center Pasay City. A big leap for me and my team as we engage and interact personally to our prospect clients, suppliers, design students and interior design enthusiast.

2018: Our most productive year, we started handle 10-15 projects in a month. That was overwhelming and we are very thankful. Slowly but surely, we are growing and becoming better designers and individuals. I want to grow my business in a slow but steady phase.

2019: Is our time to grow, develop and innovate what we already know. During this year, our design team developed business processes and systems that will respond to our client’s requirements. We developed the CAIXA DECOR BOX, we started to handle more and more corporate accounts.

On this photo, we conducted out of town team building and business planning.

As we celebrate our 6th year anniversary, we pray for brighter days ahead! We would also like to thank our clients, family, friends and supporters for being part of our design journey. BIG Thanks! from the bottom of our hearts .

“With this, I would like to share some of the lessons/ principles that my design team and I learned from the past years. Our beliefs and our goals” — Christine

1. Stay curious… Because there is so much more to learn from industry experts, trade partners, local and international trips.

2. Stay focused… There will be so many difficulties along the road, but with the right mindset, attitude and support team we can achieve all of our business goals.

3. Stay calm and never stop learning… Pressing deadlines will always be part of our interior design profession. Always strive to be on top of the latest industry trends.

4. Stay humble… Because DIVA attitude will get you nowhere.

5. Stay persistent and faithful to God .

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord” –Colossians 3:23

Commune Home showroom visit

CMV Design Team showroom visit at Commune Home located at East Wing Shangri-la Mall. On this photo (from left) Audrey Ngui and Mabelle Ang (from Commune) and Christine Manalo-Villamora, Arrah Pamintuan and Rose Ann Resoles (from CMV Interior Designs)

Commune is a home grown furniture design and lifestyle company originated in Singapore, crafting high quality artisanal works for the design savvy.

Last February, our design team rearranged, restyled and reimagined the artistic pieces from their showroom. Our impression and overall style that they offer is “Industrial Modern Style” with highlights on texture, natural wood grains and rich colors like deep red and yellow ochre.

Commune also uses eco-conscious wood and timber imported from sustainable sources in USA, Asia and Europe and lacquers and coatings with low led content.

Vignette restyled and rearranged by our creative director Rose Ann Resoles. They also have pieces that lean towards Scandinavian style with scale that will perfectly fit small spaces such as condo unit and urban apartments.

Vignette restyled and reimagined by our design intern Arrah Pamintuan. On this showroom visit, we learned that furniture finishes can create big impact to a healthy indoor air quality. As designers, we need to select furnishings with low or no hazardous pollutants at all. Chemical off-gassing from furnishings can create pollutants from base materials like filler, glue, paint or even wood stain.

Both sleek and green furniture and lifestyle pieces, you may visit Commune Home furniture showroom at 6F East Wing Shangri-La Mall Edsa Mandaluyong City.

Valcucine Manila Showroom Visit

Showroom visit with Jessa Magaway (art and design director CMV Interior Designs) with Diego D’ Angelo (Valcucine Manila) with Christine Manalo-Villamora (principal designer CMV Interior Designs)

Kitchen finishes, options and brief presentation about the world renowned kitchen maker from Italy.

To better understand and appreciate the materials, as a designer, we visit the showrooms and check the finishes available in the market today.

Fully operational and functional kitchen made with sleek materials like glass, aluminum and wood.

With just one light force, you can lift the door up and tuck all the kitchen equipments to create clutter free space. Both functional and aesthetically pleasing showcase kitchen.

Tempered back painted glass as kitchen door panel with maximum length up to 2.90 meters.

Glass bottom for drawers? … A very creative detail we discovered from Valcucine. To add interest and inspiration for your passion for cooking, you can select wide range of materials for your kitchen.

High quality tempered glass (guaranteed and tested by Valcucine) can also be used as kitchen top. On this visit, we tested a very heavy metal ball dropped into the glass top and we saw that there’s no crack, damage or even scratch. That’s amazing! view our video by clicking this link https://youtu.be/6oPGkmx3gzk

Another possibility from their brand is this motion sensor kitchen door that lifts up as soon as you wave your hands at the switch. You can also change the color of the light depending on the mood you want to set.

To know more about Valcucine Manila Showroom you may schedule your appointment to their sales team. Their showroom is located at GF The Peninsula Manila Ayala Ave. Makati City
