It’s no secret that actor and athlete Derek Ramsay has a penchant for art and designer pieces. His beautiful home in San Vicente, Palawan is a testament to that—with the captivating must-haves completing the living, dining, and even sleeping areas. In building and completing his two-storey sanctuary in Alabang, Derek made sure that he was hands-on even from the beginning.

As shared with YES! Magazine, the actor says that it was him “from the ground up.” “It was just me in charge, sobrang makikita mo that everything is in perfect order,” he exclaims. Take a peek inside his special place in the south as we make a list of some of his handpicked essentials inside the home:

Living Area

The living area is spacious, inviting, and picture-perfect. Aside from the e-bike from Vintage Electric that serves as an accent piece, there are works of art, luxe furniture, and elegant furnishings in place. Sprucing up the wall below the AC unit is a portrait of the actor from visual artist Omar Ordoñez Flores's Line Series Portraits.

We can't help but notice Derek's choice of seating piece, too! Instead of an upholstered sofa with legs, he opted for a comfy sofa set from Roche Bobois. It's not only perfect for entertaining friends and lounging, it can double as extra decor as well given the pops of lively hues.
