8 Things to Love About Kris Aquino's Home in Makati

Find out what impressed us the most in the Queen of All Media's old condos

Kris Aquino is one of the most popular and influential Filipino celebrities of our time. And, even if we see her everyday on TV, on the big screen, in glossy magazines, or on huge billboards along major roads, we still want to know more about her.

If you can't get enough of this TV host and actress, you should read the 8 things that we loved the best in her two condo units in Makati:

The Classic White Hallway

Guests are welcomed to the 330sqm "Laguna" unit with a white hallway. The hallway is made interesting with a black-and-white portrait by top celebrity photographer Mark Nicdao. Beneath the framed photograph is a white seat by Rica dela Merced.

The Dramatic Red-and-Purple Living Area

After seeing hundreds of homes with neutral colors and basic furniture, it is always refreshing to see a living area with vibrant shades and statement pieces like a plush tuxedo seat!

The Unique Jeepney Bed

Near the living area is the bedroom that was once occupied by Kris' eldest son, Joshua. When they still lived here, Joshua slept on a custom-made jeepney bed from Finesteel.

The Impressive Orange-and-White Guest Room

The guest room is also out-of-the-ordinary! The space is set apart by the vibrant color scheme and the floor-to-ceiling shelves with lighted niches.

The Mixed Prints in the Second Living Area

If you have a spacious living area, you can also get away with pairing prints with prints! The trick is to use patterns with the same colors.

For this living area, interior designers Cynthia and Ivy Almario chose stripes and florals in pinks, greens, and yellows.

The Private Entertainment Room for Kris and her kids

A pair of glass doors in the living room leads to the soundproof media room. This is the space that Kris and her children go to when they want to bond over TV series and movies.

The mini home theater is furnished with two Victorian chairs and an ottoman from Kris’ old house in Pasig City. 

The Pink-and-White Kitchen only for Kris

Kris has her very own kitchen that only she can use! Unlike the other rooms in the two condo units, her private kitchen has a more subdued color scheme. The space is only defined by two colors: baby pink and immaculate white.

The Voyage Bed in the Master Bedroom

Kris' private sanctuary is furnished with the Voyage Bed by furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue. Interestingly enough, Hollywood power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie also own a Voyage Bed!
