Our favorite celebrities always give us something to look forward to. Whether it’s their exciting projects, fun travels, and post OOTDs–we make it a point to check on their Instagram and Twitter feeds. You might be wondering what’s inside their homes too! Do they have spacious living areas? Do they have organized closets?

This 2015, we were able to take a peek inside a couple of celebrities’ well-designed spaces. Here are six that we really admired: 

Toni and Alex Gonzaga's Family Home in Taytay, Rizal

With hard work, the Gonzagas were able to build and furnish a four-bedroom home complete with an outdoor swimming pool. After a couple more years, the family invested in another part of the house on a 600sqm lot. The new wing houses the sisters' bedrooms.

Aside from the lovely kitchen and well-appointed common areas, we can't help but focus on this home's living area. It has a classic and timeless appeal that seem to invite guests and visitors to relax and feel at home. It is furnished with a fully upholstered three-seater sofa with matching seats from Imperial House of Furniture, Gifts, and Porcelain.

Ryzza Mae's Townhouse in Quezon City

Have you ever wondered what completes Aling Maliit's family home? We're guessing that it has cozy spaces where she and her loved ones can relax and bond. The three-storey townhouse was decorated by the bubbly little lady's mother Rizza. The result is a modern contemporary space with pops of color here and there.

The living area is completed with a gray sectional sofa, a flat-screen TV, and speakers. This area is perfect for days when the Ryzza and her family can simply enjoy a quiet time with their favorite shows and movies.

Nikki Gil's Modern Tropical House

With the help of architect Larry Mananquil, this once two-storey home became a three-storey property to create enough space for Nikki's own bedroom, bathroom, and walk-in closet. To create a comfortable haven, Nikki's Mommy Julia, a graduate of the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID), completed the space with tropical and Asian touches.

We bet that it's always relaxing to come home to a house that's reminiscent of your favorite resort or island getaway. My favorite part of this house would have to be the lanai. It's perfect for lazy afternoons when you simply want to read a book or enjoy a couple of refreshments with loved ones. The lanai can also be an ideal space where you can entertain friends.

Zsa Zsa Padilla and Conrad Onglao's Modern Asian House

Designed by architect Conrad Onglao, this home features clean lines, clear glass windows, and Oriental-inspired pieces. Aside from the spacious living, dining, and kitchen areas, we also loved the den! It's the perfect place where the couple can entertain and bond with friends and guests.

To make the most of this space, Zsa Zsa also enjoys private Pilates classes here.

Korina Sanchez Roxas's Condo in Taguig

After house hunting, the award-winning journalist felt that the houses she visited weren't right for her. Luckily, she found this 400sqm unit with an actual garden and a reasonable rent. To make it truly a home, she filled it with pieces that she owned for years.

We especially loved the living area in this home as it seems to invite guests to sit down and relax. The tufted sofa looks cozy and to complete the look, it is paired with a coffee table made from stone and wood.

Daniel Padilla's Modern Mediterranean House

There's so much to love about this home–from the imposing facade and spacious living area to the charming dining area and lovely powder room. But what really stood out was the kitchen–with its unique archway!

According to architect Marie-Louie Torres-de Leon, the archway was not part of the original design. However, since Daniel and his mother Carla Estrada wanted to add more bricks to the home, she put up a metal archway covered with stone cladding from EZ Rocks.
