Renovating a huge property can be a daunting task, and real-estate magnate turned politician Manny Villar knows this should only be handled by professionals. Thus, his family hired renowned interior designers Cynthia and Ivy Almario to give their old house a new look. The eight-month renovation was worth it, giving way to a tropical Asian haven full of bright, airy spaces and Filipino works of art.

While the Villars have the money to spare, their family home reflects their low-key profile, with functional and subtle pieces of furniture, and a tasteful art collection. A relaxing and comfortable vibe is evident throughout the mansion.
