Andrea Cervantes is Beruna Girl, designer & illustrator from Laguna, Philippines.

Dropped by last weekend at Heima Store‘s LRI Makati branch to check out my recent collaboration with them! I designed some prints for Heima’s Paper Club, which are inspired by nature at summertime reflected in the home. Also, my first foray into lettering! I am happy with how these designs turned out as prints but my hands are itching for them to be turned into actual paper cuts (soon, maybe?). But still, I am very thankful to Bong and Rossy of Heima for loving my designs enough to feature my designs in their store (also, congratulations to a recent milestone!).

That’s my print sitting on the beautiful wing chair. (I dream of owning a wing chair one day.) You can see its siblings at the back.

So in love with this table setting.

Also on this huggable pillow!

Also, like anybody who goes into the store, I am overwhelmed with the feeling to take pictures of everything! I used to work with Heima years ago, and I’ve experienced people asking to take photos lots of times. Years later, I can still feel the same excitement.

Their front window and lamps are decorated by this team called the Pper Heads. Instantly became a big fan and I want to meet them soon! (I don’t have a picture of the whole window and the new furniture because I brought the wrong lens, so visit them to find out!)

Trying to pose with MJ, Heima’s store manager and resident DJ, before saying goodbye. 🙂

I realized that I missed so much after I moved back to Laguna. I’m finding it more complicated to set schedules, arrange stuff and catch buses to visit my friends. But as they said in Heima: home is where the heart is, and it’s still definitely in the midst of friends even if they live away from home.

Drop by Heima at 229 LRI Design Plaza at N. Garcia st., Makati City, or at Shop 33 at Cubao Expo, Araneta Center Cubao, Quezon City, Philippines.
