RL Picks: Top 8 Family Homes

Be inspired to create the ideal space for your loved ones with these family-friendly spaces


Building, renovating or simply decorating a family home can be a challenging task. After all, you have to consider the personality and lifestyle of every family member and the amount of money you can spare for the project.

As for the design side of things, we just might be able to help you with this list of warm, cozy, and inviting houses. 

Modern Industrial Style for a Family Home Modern industrial design is an ideal choice for family homes because it looks refreshingly clean and clutter-free. Bare and simple spaces can also be affordable because there is no need for expensive elements. After living in a 150sqm condo unit for 15 years, John and Bambi Camus chose this sleek and streamlined style for the house that they would share with children Lucho, Ally, and Nicolai. Bambi’s brother, Beijing-based architect Marco Torres, designed the two-storey house.

Nobody knows this better than Jardine and Gen Gerodias who prove that repainting walls and replacing furniture can be just as effective as a complete renovation. Together, the couple changed Jardine's bachelor pad into a home fit for a small family.

Talisay House with Modern Resort Look Minimalist style can also be used to create warm and welcoming spaces. A clean and cozy feel is perfected in a home found in the heart of Talisay, Negros Occidental, just a short drive away from Bacolod. Owned by Tonet Ramos, his wife Ann and their two kids, the property reflects the family’s appreciation for open spaces with a distinct Asian tropical resort appeal.

New Rooms for a Family Home As the years go by, a family can grow and their needs can change. To accommodate new members and evolving lifestyles, some houses – such as this one owned by a brood from Bacolod – must be expanded. With the help of interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo, a new wing connected to the original home was built.

Two-Storey House with Modern Filipino Design The defining factor that turns a house into a home is a reflection of the homeowner’s personality in the interiors. This can come in the form of quirky accessories that show the owner’s playful character or a fascinating display of personal collections. In the private space of couple Paolo and Issa Feliciano, their sense of style can be seen in each piece of furniture and design element.

A Malabon Home with Designer Pieces A dilapidated two-storey 1960s house in Malabon is given new life and turned into the Cayco family home with the help of interior designer Nina Santamaria. The house now boasts of a contemporary interior design style filled with designer furniture by the likes of Kenneth Cobonpue, Vito Selma, and Ito Kish. The Caycos have also begun collecting local artworks that add a sense of culture to the space.

Renovation for an Old House For years, Kai and Cyrus Cruz tried to find the perfect place to call their own. Much to their surprise, the ideal match came in an unexpected form: Kai’s childhood home. With its high ceiling and huge windows, the 40-year-old structure was certainly a prized find. However, the couple still had to renovate the dwelling into something more functional without losing the nostalgic appeal they both fell in love with.

Family Bungalow with a Black-and-White Palette In the mid-century home of artists Romain and Tanya Rivierre, the timeless black-and-white combination leaves a lasting impression. The blue walls and green borders on all the windows and doors were replaced with white walls and black borders. The couple also chose to reupholster old furniture pieces in the same hues for a uniform effect.
