8 Things to Love About a Modern Filipino Home in Antipolo
Find out what we appreciated the most in this 390sqm property
This particular residence reminds us of a modern-day treehouse! Just like an old-fashioned Filipino dwelling, the house is made almost entirely out of wood. The wooden structure is filled with traditional and modern furniture pieces.
In 2012, homeowners Vitty and Marie Gutierrez moved back to the Philippines and started working on this dream home together. The homeowners and their daughters, Sofia and Ziva, moved into the newly built house in Antipolo on May 2014.
The living area is furnished with a wooden furniture set from Vitty's grandparents and a recycled coffee table from Make It Up.
The living area is completed with a gray couch with metal studs from Home Matters. Beside the couch is a yellow suitcase turned into a cool speaker from Make It Up.
Just like the rest of the 390sqm property, the kitchen has both traditional and modern elements. While the space is fitted with rustic wooden materials, it is also filled with state-of-the-art fixtures, appliances, and gadgets.
The staircase is memorable because it is built with recycled wood and Machuca tiles. The wall beside it is spruced up with a mural by artist Ida Calumpang.
Vitty and Marie look forward to going to sleep on this comfortable Tempsmart bed every night. The bed is made even more inviting with white sheets and gray and yellow pillows.
To allow the couple to enjoy the sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, this corner is completed with floor-to-ceiling windows and a white tufted divan from Home Matters.
The first thing that captures the attention in the master bathroom is the floor-to-ceiling wooden divider that serves as the perfect spot for the mirror, sink, and cabinets. The polished wood surfaces and the sleek modern fixtures are paired with black-and-white floor tiles.
This kiddie room is furnished with beds once owned by Marie's parents. These pieces are now painted in pink and green, Sofia and Ziva's favorite colors. The wall behind the beds is spruced up with a faux animal head, Frankie magazine pages, and watercolor portraits of the two girls.
