Last weekend, when the husband had to do some car-related errands, he passed by a new home and design store in Ortigas Home Depot (which, as the name suggests, is a complex with a sprawling home depot, but it also has a sprinkling of home stores on the side, numerous restaurants and one or two car shops).
It was still closed when he passed by but judging by the store front, he thought I would like it. He told me we should try and drop by the following weekend and since I was nursing a horrible flu at the time and was only half-conscious, I completely forgot about it until we were driving along Julio Vargas Avenue last Saturday afternoon and he turned to the home depot.
Located along the row of Casa Marcos and North Park Next Door restaurants, Urban Abode is a two-story shop by designer (and regular Real Living magazine contributor) Kristine Neri. It is filled with furniture and home accessories that are a happy tableau of modern and country-hip (at least that’s the best way I could describe it). Framed antlers, floral ottomans, beautiful and bright banigs, furry seats and so many lovely accessories are found in almost every square foot of this shop. Must go back!
