Francine Gacrama - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - When it comes to YStyle, our character is likely to be immediately seen in the way we dress. But every girl with domestic dreams knows that the home is the ultimate showcase of one’s personality, so we’re taking a break from clothing to give you a peek into some of the contents of home and décor stores all over the metro: items you can use to win your home game. If one’s home is a reflection of one’s personality, then glam is the way to go. Photos by JELITO DE LEON

Rich heritage

If you’ve got a penchant for the finer things in life, then Kish is the store for you. The treasure trove (with a touch of shabby chic) is so tremendous, you won’t know where to look first. KISH, 233 Nicanor Garcia, Makati City, Philippines                                      

Graphic edge

If you love the clothing and canvas totes of Bleach as much as we do, then you’ll love the assorted items in their store that will give your home — like your wardrobe — a punch of character. From their chambray pillows to their oven mittens, this label will leave your home looking super stylish without breaking the bank. Bleach, 2/F Greenbelt 5                    

Man cave

If you’re the kind of girl who has always loved a masculine feel, Dimensione has what you need to fill the nooks and crannies of your living space. From their quirky shotglass racks to their Erlenmeyer flasks, you’ll be sure to satisfy your boyfriend-style decorating needs — ideally with the swipe of your boyfriend’s shiny credit card. Dimensione, LG/F Greenbelt 5

Kitsch and whimsy

If you’re into whimsical and vintage styles, head right on over to Heima immediately. They’ve got everything, from their very own room sprays to the Crosley turntable you’ve always been tempted to buy. If their kitschy furniture and décor don’t already impress you from the get-go, we bet their collection of Kinfolk and Cereal magazines will.

Never underestimate the power of a good bargain!     Our Home, SM Makati
