For her 30th birthday last November 4, Angelica Panganiban’s gift to herself was her newly-renovated house.
On Instagram, she posted a photo of her newly-renovated bedroom last November 7.
Its design mixed Victorian and modern styles.
In an email sent to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Heim Interiors' Bong Rosales mentioned that leading the design team was Rossy Anne Rojales, the company's creative director.
They were supposed to finish the renovation by November 12, with a "few minor additions" until January 2017.
The dining and kitchen are the remaining areas left undone.
“Next year pa mapapa-deliver iyong cabinets,” the Kapamilya actress told PEP in a recent interview.
Angelica has been living in her house for more than four years, but it was only last year that she found the time to have it renovated.
When asked about the design, Angelica summed it up as her “ideas” blended together.
“Wala siyang theme, e.” she said.
“Ideas ko iyon 'tapos improve lang nila, inayos lang nila para hindi maging parang chopsuey.
"Para mas may pattern ba kung tawagin.”
The Unmarried Wife star related that Heim Interiors was challenged by her ideas which she drew from different inspirations.
“Kapag tinatanong ko sila kung ano iyong kinalabasan, lagi nilang sinasabi na, ‘Well, ikaw iyong pinaka-challenging na naging kliyente namin dahil hindi Victorian gusto ko, hindi eclectic, hindi modern.’
“Pero may pagkagano’n iyong ibang parts.”
But Angelica didn’t make her choices at random.
The former child star said familiarity played crucial.
“Saan ko pala gusto tumatambay sa bahay, saan ko ba gusto manood ng TV, saan ba ako madalas?
“Siguro kasi matagal ko siyang tinirahan kaya mas alam ko iyong gusto ko. Mas alam ko na iyong functions ng bawat room.”
