On their own, Toni and Alex Gonzaga are already formidable forces to be reckoned with — both sisters are multimedia stars that have made it as hosts, actresses, singers, and endorsers in their own right. However, when they are together, something magical happens. We experienced this firsthand when the two most popular sisters in the showbiz industry gave us an exclusive tour of their renovated family home in Taytay, Rizal.

In 2005, Toni and Alex, along with their parents, Daddy Bonoy and Mommy Pinty, bought four 150sqm lots bordered by two streets. After another year of saving their money, they were able to build their four-bedroom dream house complete with an outdoor swimming pool. A few years later, they were able to invest in another part of their house on another 600sqm lot! The brand new wing of their house has two bedrooms for Toni and Alex.

Living Area

Although the Gonzaga family invested in an extension of their family home, the living area remains practically the same. It is still furnished with a fully upholstered three-seater sofa with matching seats from Imperial House of Furniture, Gifts, and Porcelain. In the middle of the room is a wooden coffee table topped with ceramic horse figurines.

Kitchen

While they retained the furniture pieces in the living area, the kitchen has been completely renovated. It still has the same Victorian feel, but it is now fitted with new white countertops and wooden cabinets that have a more sophisticated look. 

Kitchen

Since a stainless steel refrigerator would probably look out of place in a traditional space, the family invested in a built-in piece. The concealed wooden cabinet opens to reveal a state-of-the-art option filled with the family's favorite food.

Dining Area

Mommy Pinty also decided to turn the old dirty kitchen into a separate kitchen and dining area that they can use for parties! It is now a wonderful space for entertaining family and friends.

House Extension

A few steps away from the renovated kitchen and dining area is the brand new wing of the family home! This new wing was built to create more space for the loved ones to share and cherish.

This part of the house extension is defined by framed photos above a fully upholstered gray sofa. Beside the sofa are vintage-looking camera and studio lights from Pinoy Big Brother director Laurenti Dyogi.

Entertainment Room

The new extension also has an entertainment room where the family can watch movies and TV shows together! Since Toni wants to learn how to play the piano, she placed an electronic keyboard behind the L-shaped sofa.

Toni's Bedroom

To match the Victorian style of the rest of the three-storey home, Toni's bedroom has an old-fashioned look. However, for a more youthful feel, the multimedia star chose furniture pieces in light and soothing shades.

Toni's Bedroom

We especially love the pale pink shade of the tufted headboard and the pink, green, and white pillows and sheets. There is also a fully upholstered armchair and bench.

On both sides of the bed are identical mirror-paneled side tables topped with white table lamps. 

Toni's Walk-in Closet

Given the new wing on a 600sqm lot, the sisters had more than enough space for their own walk-in closets! Since the sisters' Daddy Bonoy used to be a contractor, he was able to create spacious dressing rooms that most women could only dream about.

If you look closely, you would see that this particular space reveals that most of Toni's clothes are in black or white.

Shoes

Toni and Alex purchased matching shoe organizers that can hold 80 pairs of shoes each! Both sisters use their open racks to store their designer shoes, including a number of Christian Louboutin pumps.

Toni's Bathroom

Since Toni appreciates black and white so much, it comes as no surprise that her father would design a black-and-white bathroom for her. The private haven is completed with a glass-enclosed shower area and a Whirlpool bathtub.

Bathroom

For a clean and streamlined look, the bathroom has a frameless bathroom mirror and a spotless white counter!

Alex's Bedroom

Alex's bedroom bears a resemblance to her older sister's personal haven. However, this particular bedroom has more soft pink hues and dainty floral prints.

Alex's Bedroom

Since Alex admits that she has no special interest in interior design, her bedroom is only furnished with the basics: a bed frame with a built-in bed, a pair of side tables with mirrored panels, a bench with a white slipcover, and a dirty white dresser with a rustic appeal.

Alex's Walk-in Closet

Unlike her sister's walk-in closet, Alex's dressing room is filled with more colorful clothes! There is also a pink ottoman in the middle of the spacious area.

Alex's Walk-in Closet

Although the clothes and the ottoman may be different, the walk-in closet still has the same open racks, shelves. and cabinets for her own personal belongings.

Alex's Bathroom

While Toni's bathroom may have been defined by black and white, Alex's own personal space has light cream, pale pink, and floral print tiles! We were also drawn to the romantic feel of the old-fashioned clawfoot bathtub.

Alex's Bathroom

Alex's bathroom would not be complete without a white sink resting on a bathroom counter. This is now the best spot for the Kapamilya actress to get ready in the morning and prepare for bed at night.

Swimming Pool

The Gonzaga family can also enjoy a quick dip or a leisurely swim in their outdoor swimming pool! The sisters and their parents can cool down on scorching hot days or simply enjoy the pleasure of each other's company.
