Before building and moving into her new home in Quezon City, Kris Aquino lived in a bright and welcoming country-cottage-inspired haven in the same city. The property is dominated by white and happy colors—a far cry from the Makati condominium units that we also featured. The renovation of the spacious abode took three and a half months and involved a lot of changes, taking into consideration Kris’s needs and feng shui beliefs. “Ang vision nya kasi is parang it’s more of the Hamptons, ‘yong classic na country home na perfect for the family,” shares interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales of Heim Interiors. The Hamptons is famous for its villages and seaside communities. It is also a go-to summer destination for New York City residents.

While we can make a list of the things we love in the cheerful space, we can’t help but notice the fresh blooms that liven up the common areas. Kris has a fondness for flowers and it’s evident in how these are displayed around the house. Aside from these colorful additions, the house also boasts of a backyard, a vertical herb garden, and a lovely bougainvillea garden where she and her loved ones can relax and take a breather. Here are more easy ideas we can learn from this home:

Tulips are best admired in open spaces where their beauty can stand out. Take your cue from Kris’s simple setup by placing it on top of a piano, a console table, or on a side table in the living area.
