Every good musical starts with a great beginning. And if singer and actress Celeste Legaspi’s home played out like a libretto, its overture would give the audience a taste of what to expect throughout the show. The entrance to her family home is open and inviting—a testament to the tropical design of the structure.

Visitors are greeted by a bold red door, a soothing Zen fountain, and eye-catching artwork. No surprise there as the Gallardos are a family of artists. Celeste’s father was painter and National Artist Cesar Legaspi; her husband is adman and composer Nonoy Gallardo, while her daughters have worked in the painting, music, literature, and design fields.   

A visit to the home would not be complete without a tour of the many paintings by family members and other artists on the walls. “It’s really the artwork of my father that determined our direction of artists,” Celeste explains. “We don’t plan out our paintings, we just let things flow.” Even the doors are decorated with artwork. “We couldn’t really afford expensive doors, so we decided to paint on them instead.”

Each corner of the home is filled with eclectic pieces, and the furniture of various styles create a casual, bohemian look. And through the years, Celeste has learned to live with the artistic jumble, which gives the home a warm and lived-in feel. “Our house isn’t perfect, but we’re happy here,” she says.
