Have you ever wondered where Celine Lopez draws her decorating ideas from?
Where Lesley Mobo sleeps?
Or how Hindy Tantoco lives?
Curious Setting—a fairly new blog by lifestyle editors Bea Ledesma and Ria Prieto—lets you inside other people’s private spaces.
“We didn’t want to approach this like a regular magazine, where everything is styled and fixed, unlike in real life,” says Ria.
“We’re interested in the way people inhabit the space, the mess and the junk, and the offbeat knickknacks,” adds Bea. “After all, that’s what makes a place yours—not some cookie-cutter layout copied off a design book.”
The site goes as far as London, covering the pristine townhouse of London-based designer Lesley Mobo, to nearby Guadalupe to the studio of 13luckymonkey, the label famed for their handcrafted, handcarved skull rings.
Other homes include the eco-friendly demesne of Hindy Weber-Tantoco who built her Laguna home from old container vans.
“We’re featuring a lot of people in fashion because that’s the world we know,” Ria explains. “But not to worry,” Bea adds, “we’re broadening our horizons.”
Ria and Bea are also known for their jewelry line NARRA.
