Bretman Rock's Hawaiian Mansion Is a Unique Reflection of His Personality

Tropical, eclectic, and everything in between, Bretman has indeed made the space his own.

Bretman Rock's rise to fame is what a lot of dreams are made of, and for those who have followed him from the very beginning, it's a satisfaction to see him have a beautiful house in Hawaii. In a recent video with Architectural Digest, he gives a tour of his tropical mansion, which definitely reflects his personality—quirky, extra, but still grounded to his roots.

"Random, very colorful, and very gay," is how Bretman describes his formal living room. "I'm obviously from Hawaii but I am Filipino so I have a lot of local pieces in this room and I also have a bunch of Filipino pieces in this room," he shares.

The live terrarium is what Bretman loves the most in the formal living room because according to him, it's a little piece of nature in his house. "Staring at it is so therapeutic, and I love it so much," he says.

One  the designer pieces in the area was a bloom chair made by Kenneth Cobonpue.



Bretman has always put family first, and this was also factored in designing his homs. Across the bloom chair is a couple of peacock chairs, the smaller one specifically bought for his niece Cleo.

Backdropped by a tropical wallpaper, the formal dining area remains true-blue Bretman, which is highlighted by a statement piece he calls a "butt chair." He says he worked with designers from MCYIA on this and he appreciated how they were able to capture his weirdness.



"When people ask me what I do, I often just show them this," Bretman pointisto a neon-lighted list on the wall.

If there's a place in his home that centers on all that he loves and gives a peek into the person behind his social media persona, it would be the attic. Dubbed as "The Bretman Cave," it almost has an eclectic vibe due to the interesting mix of knick-knacks, from mahjong cushions to a mini science lab. It's a safe, quiet place where he can unwind and do his journaling.
