A Wedding Photographer's Bright, Airy Tiny Home in Cavite

This tiny home will make you fall in love with a wood and white color scheme.


"Bumili ako ng bahay during the quarantine," happily shares Real Living reader Marco Constantino. After working as a photographer for six years, the 28-year-old realized, "wala pa talaga akong napupundar for myself. Nangungupahan padin ako." So when his friend mentioned that his two-storey property was on sale, Marco decided to buy the house! 



According to Marco, the Cavite-based home was initially very bare. "Hindi pa ganoon ka ayos yung itsura niya nung na i-turn over sa 'kin. Walang grills at walang partitions." But with a bit of creativity, he was able to transform the space!

The wedding photographer furnished his abode with fresh white furniture—from chairs, tables, to shelves—and warmed up the space with wooden accents. Despite having a small 44 sqm floor area, Marco's newly-decorated home looks bright and airy

Similarly, his bedroom features a beautiful combination of white and wood pieces. He added some hanging light bulbs and lots of floor plants, too, which gave the space a relaxing tropical feel. Interestingly, Marco bought all of his furniture online—some of which are secondhand!
