Every home should reflect the character and style of the owner. Design consultant Janet Diquiatco-Torio kept this in mind when she decorated Kim Chiu's home in Quezon City. Inspired by Kim's personality, Janet created a modern-meets-classic space with sweet and playful touches. 

Here are the 7 things that impressed us in this three-storey property on a 600sqm lot:

The Imposing Façade

In line with Janet's idea of pairing the old and the new, the exterior of the house has a neutral shade, sleek lines, and minimalist single-pane windows. These modern elements are complemented by stone columns.

The Inviting Living Area

In order to make the living area appear sophisticated, Janet chose soft and plush materials. The space is furnished with a tufted couch and a pair of fully upholstered armchairs on an area rug. 

The Interesting Dining Area

Since the dining area is located next to the kitchen, feng shui expert Joy Lim recommended the use of soft blues to offset the fire element.

In line with this, soft blues were used for the wall mural painted by artists Raymond Cariaso and Raymond Perlata. Janet also chose a powder blue fabric for the customized dining chairs. The dining chairs have 8-shaped backs because this number symbolizes infinity and invites prosperity into the home. 

The Fully Equipped Kitchen

The spacious kitchen is completed with state-of-the-art appliances and gadgets. There is an Elba cooktop on the kitchen island and an Elba range hood to get rid of unappealing smoke and odors. There is also a Samsung French-door refrigerator and a GE Microwave Oven.

The Doll House-Like Bedroom

Kim has always dreamed of a pink home but her sister Lakam advised her to reconsider. Instead of an entire home filled only with sweet shades, Kim simply used these colors in her own loft-type bedroom.

The bedroom reminds us of a dollhouse because it has its own living area and home office downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. 

The Floral Patterns in the Bedroom

The second level of the bedroom is defined by the dainty floral prints on the customized curtains and bed sheets, and in the paintings by artist Chico Javier. 

The bedroom is furnished with a custom-made bed with a tufted headboard, two side tables, and a study table with a chair. Two bears from her former onscreen partner Gerald Anderson are placed on the bed. The life size teddy bear is a gift from Xian Lim.

The Cabinets Filled with Designer Shoes

The third floor of the Quezon City home is used exclusively as a walk-in closet! It is the place for storing Kim's clothes, bags, accessories, and shoes.

Her shoes are stored in glass cabinets to keep them in pristine condition. The clear doors also make it easier for the lady of the house to find her favorite pairs among the Tory Burch, Chanel, Gucci, Christian Louboutin, and Stella Luna heels.
