Grace Lee's Bold-Patterned Kitchen and Dining Areas
Let this home inspire you to create a special nook where you can welcome and entertain friends and family
Grace Lee may not have been born Filipino, but the TV host considers Manila her home. The shy child who moved to the Philippines with her family at just 10 years old has definitely come a long way. “We came here without knowing any English or Filipino,” she says. The transition, however, wasn’t difficult. “Napaka-accommodating talaga ng mga Pilipino. Noong una kaming dumating dito, we were so warmly welcomed by all our neighbors. We didn’t even speak the language, and yet we felt the love,” recalls Grace.
Years after the big move, she was able to establish a name for herself as a TV and radio personality.

I really love it here, and I think I’m meant to be here,” she says.
