Did you know that trending actress, TV host, and model Angel Aquino loves to cook? The kitchen and dining areas in her family home in Marikina give a peek into their passion for good food and preparing meals—with its efficient layout and bold color palette with red as accent color. Angel’s kitchen follows a U-shaped layout with spacious countertops, allowing her and her family to create two breakfast nooks.


To make serving meals easier, the dining area is only a few steps beside it. Since these two areas bring together homeowners and their guests, it’s a must to keep it functional, inviting, and cozy.

To accomplish this, you can bring in new accessories every now and then or update the linens you use. With Angel’s space as your peg, you can create your own glorious kitchen and dining areas by investing in new furniture and décor pieces. Be guided by our picks and ideas below:

Achieve the homey vintage theme with the right pieces. Instead of going for wall-mounted shelves and buffet tables for storage, opt for an armoire. This elegant storage option has a chic yet old world appeal.

A lovely alternative to upholstered seating pieces are wooden chairs that allow you to relax and settle in completely. This chair has a backrest so you can sit back, relish a good meal, and have a grand time in the company of your friends. The bonus? You can pair it with wooden benches, too!

Many have chosen to use a clear jar filled with faux eucalyptus or fresh blooms as centerpiece. Achieve a cheerful summer vibe by opting for orange sprigs instead. A bunch of orange sprigs in a sleek glass receptacle can instantly add a refreshing touch to your setup.

In need of a pop of color? Let your chosen wall accent get the job done. An abstract painting can liven up a dull dining area while adding to the high-end final look.

Love keeping treats, cookies, and coffee essentials in matching containers? Give your favorite mason jars a break and go for a set of minimalist canisters that would look good on your countertop as part of a vignette. You can also place these in a pretty tray to serve as a centerpiece.
