What is the one thing that readers often ask Real Living editors? Many readers want to know what our favorite home of all time is! It seems like a simple question, but for us, it's like asking a parent who his or her favorite child is! "How can a parent choose one child over another?" we wonder.

Since we already named some of our favorite homes here, we also decided to reveal 7 things we love about the most memorable living areas that we have ever featured.

The unexpected combination of pieces in this Pasig condo
