For many of us, decorating the home is always something to look forward to! It's always exciting to imagine your perfect home, find the ideal paint color, or purchase nice throw pillows.

If you are also thinking about improving your personal space, you may want to check out this Modern Asian house designed by architect Ireneo P. Roque! This bungalow is a clean and streamlined space filled with Oriental touches and colorful details.

To help you get started on your home decorating project, check out the 5 things that you can learn from this family home in Bulacan:

Work with white

Many homeowners are afraid of a white ceiling, walls, floors, window blinds, and furniture pieces, because they think of it as dumihin. Some people think that pristine building materials and other items for the home can easily be destroyed by dirt and stains. If you think this is true, we would like to appeal for you to change your mind.

There are many white things that can withstand wear and tear and can easily be cleaned! You can find matte white paint that doesn't attract dust, white ceramic tiles that can be mopped clean, and furniture pieces with white slipcovers that can be washed. 

Consider a playful color

You can also brighten up your personal space with bold and vibrant shades like apple green, fire engine red, and electric blue. For this particular area, the architect chose a bright green for the backsplash, kitchen island, and bar stools.

Replace pillow covers and bed sheets

If you're not feeling too brave just yet, you can begin by updating your soft furnishings! You can spruce up your bed with new pillow covers and bed sheets.

Bring in a console table

Another way to update the bedroom is to choose a console table. A console table in front of your bed can be used to store your DVD players, gaming consoles, and other entertainment essentials. 

Look for window treatments

You may also want to purchase window treatments like curtains or motorized blinds! Window treatments define your bedroom windows and provide you and your loved ones with more privacy.
