5 Summer-Hued Homes in the Philippines

Celebrate the beauty of the season with these vibrant spaces


When the summer season arrives, we dream of being surrounded with vibrant hues: the golden rays of the sun, the bright blue of the sky and sea, and the rich shades of blooming flowers.

If the mere sight of these bright colors make you feel happy and cheerful, check out some of our favorite Philippine homes filled with summer-inspired shades. May these spaces inspire you to choose playful hues for your own houses, condos or apartments, too.

A Colorful 270sqm Townhouse

Even after two repainting jobs, the Gardoce family was still unhappy with the dark, gloomy feel of their 270sqm townhouse. To improve the space, Real Living contributing stylist Issa Villar used colors like apple green, light blue, and rich red.

A 154sqm, Two-Storey Penthouse Filled with Prints and Patterns

In this 154sqm, two-storey penthouse, interior designer Van Acuna chose earth shades with fun accent shades and interesting floral and graphic prints.

Although the space was initially inspired by the loveliness of an English garden in spring, we think it also embodies the summer vibe (especially since we don't have the spring season in the Philippines).

A Colorful Marriage of Old and New in a Two-Storey Home

While most homes with traditional Filipino furniture often have the same shades of brown and white, the Aldip house is an exception. The wooden pieces are paired with unexpected blue, orange, and green elements.

A Relaxing Vacation Home in Negros Occidental

In this vacation home, couple Dinky and Milou can bask in the glory of nature. While they take in the breathtaking views of the unspoiled terrain, they can also appreciate the eclectic look of their home. The space is made even more interesting by the red and green walls.

An Out-of-the-Box Residence

While many summer-inspired residences have a tropical, resort-like feel, this home has a modern contemporary design. However, it made our list because of the white walls and blue details that remind us of a day on the beach or a sailboat ready to leave the shore.
