Forty, Filipino, and Fabulous - PSID 2007

Our home and its architecture, fixtures, furnishing and its interior design is an epitome of us. These elements represents our personalities, characters and ambitions. Designing our own home requires time, effort and careful planning. Just like choosing our clothes, wardrobe and what to wear for an occasion. There's a lot of things that we to consider. Choosing what's right, what's hot, what's not sometimes requires professional help. Couturiers or Designers is to clothes; and Architects and/or Interior Designers is to our living or working spaces.

Interior Design has equal importance and significance in the fashion industry and design empire. As it is obvious that well renowned designers and fashion houses are venturing not only into cosmetics and fragrances but now investing to Furnitures and home interiors. Tickling not only our senses but our pockets or bank accounts as well. Giorgio Armani came out with Casa Armani, Donna Karan - Home, Ralph Lauren with Home/Paint to name a few.

But what if we don't have the resources and time to plan all of these? That's the time we need professional help (not a shrink), Help from Interior Designers and Decorators. Interior Designers are always in touch with the hottest trends and ins and outs of the business. They are the people who are always in contact with the country's Furniture designers and manufacturers. They know where to get everything that you need and fancy. To get inspired designing your home and if your planning building your own home or remodeling you existing crib. Drop by Paseo Center.
