MY 10 FA­VORITE THINGS: CARLO VERGARA. The for­mer RL art di­rec­tor and the cre­ator of the lo­cal comic icon Zsa Zsa Zaturn­nah shares what in­spires him at home.

Fa­vorite Pickme-up Treat “To make my­self feel chip­per, I’d spend a few min­utes in the kitchen and home sec­tions of a depart­ment store. It’s al­ways ex­cit­ing to see what’s avail­able.” Visit Bulthaup at G/L Units 106 & 107 Fort Vic­to­ria, 5th Av­enue Cor­ner 23rd St, BGC, Taguig City.

Fa­vorite Color Com­bi­na­tion

“I love blues and aquas in light shades, cou­pled with of­fwhites and yel­low wood. The coun­try vibe re­laxes me.” Try White Mosaic, Spun Gold, Rogue River, and Clear Field, all from Ace Paints.

Fa­vorite Travel Desti­na­tion

“I spent a month in Auck­land and I fell in love with the place. It’s laid-back, with not a lot of peo­ple. Lots of parks, too.”

Fa­vorite Re­cy­cling Trick “Af­ter a shop­ping trip, I’d keep the pa­per bags af­ter care­fully tak­ing out the sta­ple wires. So ver­sa­tile, those bags.”

Fa­vorite Area in the House “I dream of hav­ing a kitchen like the ones we’d see in cook­ing shows. It brings out my in­ner home­maker. I love to cook.”

Fa­vorite Ob­ject on the Desk

“I’ve al­ways wanted an iPad Pro... I’m glad I made the in­vest­ment. I get more work done, and I don’t have to worry about wast­ing pa­per.”

Fa­vorite Home Gadget

“Def­i­nitely the mi­crowave. It can de­frost, cook, heat wa­ter for cof­fee and in­stant noo­dles, and all you need is an elec­tric out­let.”Try Whirlpool Mi­crowave Oven MWX254SS, P7,998, Abenson

Fa­vorite Home De­sign Book “When I was work­ing for Real Liv­ing in 2008, Domino: The Book of Dec­o­rat­ing was re­leased. I re­ally like the Domino style of dec­o­rat­ing. Noth­ing too fancy and very achiev­able, but feels and looks ex­pen­sive.” Find it at Na­tional Book­store.

Fa­vorite Home Scent “On the rare oc­ca­sion that I’d buy air fresh­ener, I’d al­ways go for an ‘ocean breeze’ scent. It’s not too strong and makes things feel grounded.” Try Bo­ra­cay Shores Scented Can­dles, P529, Alice Blue, Power Plant Mall, Makati City.

Fa­vorite Home Ac­ces­sory “Pil­lows! I like hug­ging.” Beige Pil­low, find sim­i­lar at H&M Home, SM Makati
