There are houses that instantly make you feel welcome and spaces that seem to transport you into a different place the moment you step inside. In this three-storey house, you won’t just be at ease, you’ll also feel like you’re living inside a magical storybook. “I call this house the Bed and Breakfast house because it looks and feels like that. In a city where almost all the newly built homes are modern in style, this one is different because it’s distinctly a country house,” says interior designer Cathy Cena-Yambao. Together with architect Suzette Chua-Caringal, Cathy and the owners meticulously worked on this dream home—from going through the design process to polishing the final look.

With three floors, five bedrooms, a home office, two living rooms, and seven bathrooms to cover, we can only imagine the amount of time they poured into the project. “The main challenge was probably just the length of time the project went on because we started designing even before groundbreaking and it went on up to three years later, even after they’ve moved in because we accessorized little by little,” adds the interior designer. To achieve the picturesque American Country style, the team used shiplap sidings, white finishes, wood accents, and rustic-inspired furniture. Take a tour of this lovely home below:
