If you’ve seen the Queen of All Media’s former home in Makati, you’d have an idea how colors play a huge part in her space. From deep shades to striking hues—these picks made her home unique and special. While she has settled in a new abode years after moving out of the spacious condo, her love for captivating details remained.

In a series of posts on Instagram, Kris shared a few snapshots of her new home that’s set to be completed in May. Based on the captions, it’s not surprising that she was hands-on every step of the way. Aside from coming up with concepts, she also handpicked the materials used in each area. Here are some of the elements worth noting and how you can achieve something similar in your space:

1. The pink front door

 

In any home project, compromise is key. According to Kris, her sons agreed to this pink front door. Choosing a lighter shade keeps it cool and pleasing to the eyes, while still making a statement. If you're planning a quick makeover that won't cost much, painting the front door can be on top of your list. Work with a color that would catch the attention of your neighbors, while still complementing your interiors.

2. The must-see kitchen

 

Would you believe this is only a partial view of the kitchen? It's no secret that Kris enjoys cooking and preparing meals for her kids, family, and friends—the reason why her cooking area takes up a huge space. We're curious as to how the home will look like after turnover as she shared that it won't have a living room to allot more space for the kitchen. The family will have access to a lanai by the pool—another area perfect for entertaining guests.

Notice something special in the kitchen? The rose quartz countertops were a specific request by the owner and paired with white cabinets and compartments—the material stands out. We're sure Kris would have a grand time whipping up dishes as the kitchen will also have different cooking stationsa teppanyaki grill, double ovens, and a high intensity wok cooking spot, to name a few.

3. Josh and Bimby's bathroom

 

With the help of interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales and the Heim Interiors team, Kris was able to achieve her concept for Josh and Bimby's bathroom. Locker-inspired and dominated by black tiles and partition, the spacious T&B highlights a tub, two showers, two toilets, and side-by-side vanity sinks. The chosen details add an industrial feel to the home, a break from the light colors seen in the kitchen.

RL Tip: Looking for quality bath fixtures to add to your space? Visit the Sanitec Main Showroom at #236, E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue, Barangay Don Manuel, Quezon City for options and setups you can use as pegs.
