23 Glamorous, Opulent, and Luxurious Design Inspirations for Your Home

The Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID), founded by Agustin Cancio in June 1967, recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, with an exhibit aptly entitled “GOLD” at the Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, which ran for the whole month of October.

The PSID Dean, Jie Pambid, shared the inspiration for the exhibit: “GOLD is an acronym for Glamorous, Opulent, and Luxurious Designs. This exhibit is also very timely since Glam and Luxe are the in design this year, so we rode on the the modern glam and luxe theme and showed 23 different ways of using GOLD in the exhibit,” says Jie Pambid.

The GOLD exhibit featured, for the first time, combined works of students, faculty, and alumni. Out of the 23 booths, 12 are featured works by the students and 11 are featured works by professionals, who are either faculty or alumni.

Each 24-sq.m. booth featured unique themes, which included the following: a Modern French Renaissance living room, a Pop Art dining room, a Balinese kitchen, a Modern Deconstructivism study room, a Moroccan Oasis bedroom, a Contemporary Egyptian toilet and bathroom, a Cultural Aztec living room, a Contemporary Neoclassic dining room, an Industrial Luxe kitchen, a Modern Art Deco den/study, an Eclectic Elegance bedroom, and a Neo-Archipelago toilet and bathroom.

The faculty members and alumni who joined the exhibit are Michael Pizarro, Vianca Anonuevo and Mark Perez, Mary Ann Venturina Bulanadi, Stephanie Yan, Gino and Karen Abrera, Lalyn Nivera, Pam Lagura and Ezra Halili, Jigs Adefuin, Chitz Legazpi, Mike Suqui and Kat Obcemea, and Gelo del Mundo.
