  • Style of Home: Modern Vintage
  • Size of Home: 380sqm with loft

Away from the city of Baguio frequented by most tourists stands a 380sqm sanctuary owned by Bong and Aischa Bangaoet who live with their kids Rafael, Sofia, and Olivia. In it are walls done in mostly neutrals—quite fitting for the numerous wooden antiques found around the house. This could be attributed to Aischa’s mom Pynky Gomez-Magsino who owns PNKY Vintage Collection and whose idea of celebrating milestones is by gifting her children with a piece of furniture.

The living area has a bright and airy vibe, thanks to the house’s big windows and high ceiling. It sits two huge leather sofas and a couple of wooden tables. Right across it are the dining and kitchen areas where Bong’s favorite piece, a six-seater kamagong dining table, takes center stage. Meanwhile, the staircase in the kitchen leads to the loft, which houses the study area, the den, and a small space for the family’s pet supplies.
