6 Things to Love About this Modern Tropical Townhouse
Looking for design inspiration? Check out this home filled with Filipino artworks and furniture
Most newlyweds can tell you that it is always exciting to start a new life together! This experience becomes even more special when you move into your dream home. Just ask Ben and Mau Tan, a young couple who come home every night to a two-storey townhouse completed with Filipino artwork and furniture.
Here are 6 things that we remember most in this 200sqm property designed by Wilan Dayrit, Karina Cagalingan, and Kevin Pareja:
This living area looks so different from most homes in the Philippines! The cool gray walls, fully upholstered furniture, and cowhide area rug make this space look surprisingly unique.
Interior designer Wilan Dayrit noticed that many dining areas have rectangular dining tables. In order to make this particular space stand out, he chose a round, marble-top dining table.
For an even more interesting look, he complemented the polished marble with wooden dining chairs. The dining room is completed with a framed abstract painting by Arturo Luz.
Just like the rest of the two-storey townhouse, the kitchen has an effortlessly chic and sophisticated appeal.
The space looks elegant yet relaxed, making it the perfect space for a young couple to prepare meals and entertain friends.
The modern tropical design style of the home is best seen in the charming guest bedroom. The space is furnished with a made-to-order wooden daybed, leaf-printed pillows, and two side tables used as a coffee table.
A framed Carlo Magno painting and a leaf-patterned area rug are fitting final touches.
Our favorite part of this newlywed nest is the master bedroom, which looks like it could belong in a high-end tropical resort. The space seems luxurious because of the neutral color scheme, the fully upholstered headboard, and the well-chosen furniture and accessories.
Another abstract painting by Arturo Luz serves as a focal point in the couple's private sanctuary.
The awkward space by the staircase has been turned into a glamorous powder room. The area is defined by faux marble tiles, Kohler bathroom fixtures, and a floor-to-ceiling mirror.
