LOOK: Heart Evangelista’s new condo unit has a mirrored wall inspired by an iconic Chanel showroom
Heart Evangelista gave a look at her lovely condo unit, featuring a chic corner inspired by the iconic Chanel showroom at Rue Cambon in Paris, France.
Located at Sapphire Bloc in Ortigas, the actress’ “latest investment” is a one-bedroom unit, which she thinks “is actually the best if you want to invest in something."
“It’s easy to rent out,” she said in a recent vlog, adding that it’s a part of her future plans.
Heart tapped interior design experts Geewel, Astrid, and Chris of PBELL + A.ID, who made it a point to tailor everything according to her liking and her way of living just by basing each detail on the things she has said in her previous interviews and the snaps she has shared on social media.
“I love how you mixed the different textures of the whites. I also like where you put all the stuff that inspires me—memories, photos. I love also the combination of the tinge of the coral, the gold. I love everything,” she told the PBELL + A.ID team.
Her well-lit and art-filled space has a spacious dining area, one bedroom, and an office.
Knowing that Heart is a person with so many interests, they decided to make her office bigger than her bedroom. “You work on so many things, you have so many collaborations, and you have to meet with guests and partners, so we have to devote a significant amount of space for your studio,” said Astrid.
Aside from her acting talent and incredible creativity, Heart has been loved for her eye-catching designer outfits, which include Chanel.
It's only fitting that one of the highlights of her new place is a mirrored wall inspired by an iconic Chanel showroom staircase at the Rue Cambon in Paris, "where Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel sat, unseen, to observe the reactions of the audience as each of her collections was presented. Like a symbolic backbone, this central axis links the Haute Couture salons on the first floor to the creator's apartment on the second."
“It’s filled with mirrored panels similar to that one. The idea is that we want to multiply the reflection of Heart,” Astrid explained.
There’s also a display of clothes, which the local star refers to as “works of art.”
“This is just a good idea because, you know, sometimes you don’t want to constrict yourself to just a cabinet so, again, you can display your clothes anywhere because they are artworks. So this was something I was very happy to have,” said Heart.
