I am a frustrated interior designer so when i got the chance to be invited by Sir Jeman Bunyi Villanueva (Editor at Orange Magazine TV), i got really excited and have a lot of imaginary designs and images in my mind. I used like collect interior types of magazines and watch home makeover. Let me share with you some of the most fabulous and indeed masterpieces from Past - Present - and Future Interior designs by the students of the graduation exhibit of the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advanced Class of 2016, slated from September 30 to October 31, 2016 at the Square Building, Greenfield District, Shaw Boulevard, Mandaluyong City. The dynamic nature of design through the past, present and future will be the centerpiece of “Evolution”.
In celebration of PSID’s 49th year, “Evolution” will take exhibit guests on a journey through a timeline of design trends, styles and designs from past, present, and future.
The exhibit is set to showcase 24 exquisitely-designed spaces that represent different time periods and various inspiration from the past, the present, and the future.
P A S T
Vintage trends and classic designs take center stage. Showcasing how mid-century design styles have influenced today’s interior design standards, the Past gallery will take exhibit-goers through a trip down memory lane with looks inspired by the 1940s to the 1970s. Booths will capture the essence of illustrious designers from this time period such as Finn Juhl, Eero Aarnio, Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen, Charles Eames, Hans Wegner, Warren Platner, and Arne Jacobsen.
"If a building becomes architecture, then it is art..... And when an architect has designed a house with large windows, which is a necessity today in order to pull the daylight into these very deep houses, then curtains come to play a big role in architecture."By Emma Jane Acaba, Aleia Beatrice Aurelio, Margarita Celina Cruz, Jose Martin Paolo Dimalanta, Judith Ann Ochengco, Marieces Simbulan, and Justine Gliceria Villanueva.
A living room design inspired by the mid-century modern movement of the 1950s and featuring the use of natural materials, especially wood, and an open layout, giving the space an open feel.
"A chair is not just a product of decorative art in a space, it is a form and a space in itself. I have always dreamt of becoming an artist, and I have always pursued that dream. But I've had to realize, that I would' make it as a painter, a sculptor or a musician. I have tried, but only in private."By by Adrienne Jo Alonzo, Klarisse Flores, Ma. Michelle Francesca Hilahan, Jasmin Lorraine Medenceles, Billy Joe Osias, and Dayanor Tan.
A den design that takes inspiration from the Danish designer’s 45 chair and is organic with its use of fluid lines and earth tones.
"Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art..... The ultimate goal of the architect...is to create a paradise. Every house, every product of architecture... should be a fruit of our endeavor to build an earthly paradise for people..... I tell you, it is easier to build a grand opera or a city center than to build a personal house."Lauren Mae Andres, Marinela Atienza, Germaine Therese Flores, Arianne Kristel Sherburne, Jean Ashley Tinsay, and Ma. Arizza Sheen Velasquez.

"The purpose of architecture is to shelter and enhance man’s life on earth and to fulfill his belief in the nobility of his existence..... Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan."Alexander Apilado, Atria Margaret Badua, Kathryn Patricia Mansibang, Frances Lauren Medina, Ronald Kelvin Rivera, and Sharmaine Sta. Ana.
A neofuturistic take on kitchen designs featuring natural shapes, simple curves, Tulip bar stools, and multi-function pieces that transform the booth from cooking to entertaining space.
"Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design..... Art resides in the quality of doing, process is not magic..... Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose..... In architecture the idea degenerated. Design allows a more direct and pleasurable route."Jeremi Anne Arive, Patrick Paul Corpuz, Francine Fariñas, Bernard Sampilo, Analyn Santos, and Yuka Tachibana.
A colorful yet organic take on a study design featuring brick, wall-to-wall carpeting, and a balance between bold and earthy colors.
"A chair is to have no backside. It should be beautiful from all sides and angles..... Many foreigners have asked me how we made the Danish style. And I've answered that it...was rather a continuous process of purification, and for me of simplification, to cut down to the simplest possible elements of four legs, a seat and combined top rail and arm rest."Marie Antonette Asis, Rachel Mae Bucud, Alexandra Marie Ignacio, and Roseleen Santos.
