#HeyjowTeam Picks at Casa Consunji
Last year's Style Stories featured a number of notable creative entrepreneurs such as Hindy Weber Tantoco and Rajo Laurel.
This year, we're taking it further with our Art and Design series featuring a more diverse line-up of creatives sharing their inspirations, work spaces and insights.
Our first story for the year is on Casa Consunji, Maggie Wilson-Consunji's newest venture, where you can find unique home items perfect for coastal living.
Inside Casa Consunji's first store located in Taguig
We visited Maggie's first store in Taguig where we learned more about her design philosophy and creative process in putting together a collection.
Maggie's newest venture is an expression of her love for interior design
Stepping inside Casa Consunji is like going on a mini vacay because it's not your typical home and furniture store. If you love handmade items made of natural materials, it's definitely a must-visit! Here are just some of the things we loved:
Joana: "I find these rattan furniture pieces so refreshing! The natural material interpreted in a modern design can give warmth to a space without making it feel cramped. These brass pieces also lend warmth but with a dose of understated luxury."
Kath: "I love the fringes on these raffia coasters - they can add a touch of playfulness to a table setting. I immediately thought of mythology when I saw these brass pieces and the beetle also reminded me of two of my favorite movies. These mugs are perfect for 'everyday elegance.' The silver-colored rim adds just a hint of refinement and make the pieces pop. These mugs can even be conversation pieces."
Sheila: "This brass floor lamp has so much character - it's feminine, elegant and most importantly, saves space! The chair would come in handy for 'instant' photo shoots with my kids. The texture on these bathroom essentials reminds me of the beach and the happy moments my family and I have spent together - and the muted color just makes them so charming!"
Jaz: "This brass cutlery set would be perfect for a romantic table set-up - maybe for a DIY Valentine's Day dinner. I love the exotic vibe of the lamp and drum - they remind me of my favorite beach trips to Indonesia and Batangas."
Michelle: "I love the happy and young vibe of these round mirrors. I think red is such a fun and festive color that can be used beyond the holiday season and these red plates can make a summer-themed tablescape look more inviting."
