We don’t often see log cabins – and with good reason, as the rustic architecture and furnishings aren’t ideal for the tropical Philippine climate. However, further up north – where the temperature takes a dip for most of the year, log cabins may not be the norm – but they do exist.

The Corpuz family’s log cabin in Tagaytay is one of those. From the outside, it looks like your typical ski lodge—but inside, it’s all contemporary Filipino. There are no moose heads on the walls or bear skin rugs in front of a fireplace; instead, there are clean lines made by wooden furniture and warm-toned accessories. Interior designer Carmen Lim coordinated with newscaster Nina Corpuz to design the space. Lim built around the family's chosen rich yellow hue as touches of green and orange, set against brown, cream, mocha, and beige acted as the recurring color motif. These colors are paired with the well-chosen furniture pieces, rustic wooden ceiling beams, and clay floors. The result? A homey and cozy rest house – a perfect refuge away from the city.
