10 Homes We Loved in 2015
From classic and contemporary to tropical and airy, these houses gave us design pegs and more
This year, we saw over a hundred different homes – each with a distinct style and an inspiring story behind it. Whether it’s a tropical refuge or a chic contemporary abode, one thing’s for sure – the homeowners gave a lot of effort to make their homes special, unique, and beautiful.
Before we bid 2015 goodbye, let’s revisit some of the homes that you liked:
One thing that we noticed is that we’re all fans of transformations. From makeovers that leave us in awe to plain homes turned into cozy spaces, these stories motivate us to work on our spaces too.
Located in Bulacan, this home used to be a bungalow. To accommodate the owners and their relatives, the owners decided to turn the place into a two-storey house. We can’t help but fall in love with the bright living area – it looks perfect for get-togethers and bonding sessions with the whole family.
This year, we also got to take a virtual trip to Singapore to take a peek inside this contemporary-meets-oriental style home for a Chinese-Malaysian couple.
Design consultant and proud Pinoy Michael Cu Fua of Ong & Ong worked with Oriental furniture and accessories to liven up the space. Wooden touches add warmth to the space defined by clean lines and modern materials.
Rest houses can be ideal getaways when you simply want to escape the hustle and bustle of the metro. When typhoon Glenda hit the country, this house was left with a destroyed roof and damaged windows.
With the help of interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy, the homeowners improved the home by fixing the damages, turning the home into a relaxing refuge.
A captivating façade, a lovely veranda, and unique private spaces – these are just some of the things that make this home a must-see. The homeowners worked with earth colors, organic shapes, and rustic furniture to create a homey and welcoming ambiance.
This house is one of the most viewed and shared home feature on the website and it’s not surprising why. It is charming, lovely, and would make you want to save up for your own home too.
Designed by interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy, the 100sqm house features bright colors, bold patterns, and modern furniture and accessories. One of our favorite areas would have to be the spacious living area. We simply can’t get enough of the unexpected light blue door!
Airy, spacious, maaliwalas – this house is perfect when you want to stay at home all day to read a book, catch up on your favorite TV shows, or simply want to spend quality time with loved ones.
With the help of architect Renato Carpio and contractor Nikki Bustos, the owner achieved a comfortable and functional space.
This home owned and designed by interior decorated and events stylist Rochelle Javier looks straight out of Pinterest.
The entire home is spacious and lovely, filled with furniture pieces that she carefully selected. Our favorite areas are the rustic-inspired kitchen and the cute nautical-themed kiddie room.
The owners of this property wanted to have a more spacious home for their kids. Moving into this four-storey home gave them what they wanted as the 450sqm home has a living area, dining area, kitchen, and five bedrooms.
Interior designer Jane Ong furnished and decorated the space to create a home that the family would love to come home to.
One of the most shared homes this year, this house designed by architect Ireneo P. Roque fulfilled the dreams of the owner. It has an open layout, glass and steel materials, and white furniture and accessories.
Visitors would instantly notice the open kitchen where the modern-contemporary-meets-industrial style can be seen. With the help of interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy, the owners achieved a beautiful three-storey townhouse that’s not only stylish, but comfortable too.
