There are so many reasons why a home stands out. It can be the mix-and-match of furniture, the color palette, or the accessories that add character to the space—whatever the reason, one thing’s for sure—we all love clicking through galleries and taking note of the ideas that we can apply in our own havens.

Whether you’re on the lookout for celebrity homes or small spaces, here are 10 that you liked and reacted to this merry month of March:

Bea Alonzo's Sophisticated Home in Quezon City

For this dream home, Bea wanted to showcase elements reminiscent of posh hotels and inviting Asian resorts. To make this happen, interior designer Jeizele delos Reyes-Go came up with a plan that perfectly blends the traditional with the modern.

In the living area alone, we can already learn a few decorating tips. For an elegant feel, you may want to consider an all-white sofa for your space, too. Liven it up with colorful pillows and accessories.

A Renovated Rest House in Sta. Rosa, Laguna

Just the sight of the facade would make you want to read the story behind this space and what makes it special. Designed by interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy, this home was damaged by Typhoon Glenda. To give the space a calming look, Jean worked with muted colors, touches of wood, and a couple of country-inspired elements.

Venus Raj's Tropical Home in the Province

This inviting home is simple yet packs a punch in terms of overall vibe. Surrounded by a lush landscape, it features few yet well-selected furniture and an open layout that makes the bungalow airy and relaxing. Each corner seem to invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the wonders of living in the province.

A Charming 22sqm Unit in Manila

Those who live in the city during weekdays would love to have a space that's as cozy as the real one. After all, it's your refuge after a long day in the office. For the owner of this unit, it meant working on a look that would remind her of a hotel room or a relaxing getaway. To accomplish this, interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy worked with light colors and Shabby chic elements.

Nikki Gil's Tropical Home in Las Pinas

Nikki's Mommy Julie furnished and decorated this family home. To complement the contemporary design, she worked with tropical and Asian pieces. These elements added warmth to the home and made it even more inviting. We liked the lanai best—it's the perfect nook for entertaining guests or reading a good book.

A 132sqm Condo With a Fantastic View of Antipolo

If we'll be asked to pick just one spot where we prefer to stay in this home, it's going to be the living area—hands down! The floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light and gives one a view of Antipolo. We can only imagine sitting on the sofa, enjoying coffee, and just looking out the window.

Team Kramer's Family Home

If you're following their Facebook page, we're sure you're familiar with the different areas where they shoot some of the adorable videos that they upload. There's so much to love about this three-storey house with modern contemporary style but we'd pick the home theater as the coziest—with its comfortable seats and relaxing vibe reminiscent of an actual cinema.

A Beach-Inspired 54sqm Condo

Living in the city can be stressful so it's important that we go home to a calm and peaceful space. In this unit in Mandaluyong, accessories that will remind you of the beach and palette of blue and white create a serene vibe that you'd love to come home to. Touches of wood were added for warmth and a few clever storage ideas help keep it clutter-free.

Small Space Ideas in a 23sqm Condo

Safe to say that this is one of the most viewed homes on the website! Designed by interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo for siblings who study in Manila, it features smart space-saving solutions that help make the most of the space. Who would miss the mirror that help make the unit look bigger? We especially loved the cozy study desks complete with wall-mounted clipboards and white shelf.
