There is an upside to spending our days at home: we can finally clean, declutter and even redesign our spaces. This new series called #HeyjowQuarantineCorners aims to inspire creativity and joyful living at home despite what's happening in the world right now. Let's explore these beautiful spaces together, which have been generously shared with us by friends.
Entrepreneur Chippy Ledesma (@chippyledesma) has a distinct style when it comes to designing her home. She effortlessly mixes tropical elements with art pieces and animal prints set against bold cobalt-colored walls - almost like stepping into an artsy boutique hotel.
"I aspire to be timeless yet unique, straying as far as possible from a look that is too polished, like an unlived-in showroom," Chippy shares.
"I find peace in clean lines, contrasting textures, and a mix of modern and aged pieces. I also love to play with scale and I attempt to draw the eye to one dominant element, item, or area in a space," she adds.
"Since the lockdown began, I have been doing a lot of gardening, organizing, restyling and, most importantly, bonding with Lex, my husband, and our two adorable fur babies, Teri and Vito - usually in our garden since I really love al fresco settings."
"I've also been rotating my special tableware collection to achieve that 'dining out' feeling. Dressing up and setting the table nicely is extremely therapeutic for me as it makes me feel that life is normal."
