It’s not surprising why some homeowners opt to have their homes renovated over the years. A few work on repairs, others add rooms to welcome new family members, and a couple would simply want a fresh start or a new look to mark a milestone.

In the case of Annabelle Rama and Eddie Gutierrez, change came 25 years after they purchased a home in White Plains, Quezon City in 1987. With the help of interior designer Jeizele delos Reyes-Go, they now have a modern home filled with elegant touches and tropical-inspired elements. Suffice to say, it’s perfect for weekends when the whole clan simply want to relax and catch up! Here are some of the things we loved best about the sprawling space:

1. The Impressive Facade

From the outside, guests can truly appreciate not just the size of the property, but the overall theme as well. It stays true to the concept of keeping things simple, clean, and very linear. The combination of modern and tropical touches make it extra inviting.

2. The Open and Spacious Layout

The first floor living area houses Annabelle's collection of figurines. It also has big furniture pieces and accent details that are hard to miss. Having an open floor plan gives the owners plenty of room to move around in and lets guests appreciate the chosen elements for the home, too.

Since it has big windows, the area is bathed in natural light and allows the occupants to admire the view of the outdoors.

3. The Well-Equipped Dining Area

To accommodate all family members during get-togethers, the dining room features an eight-seater dining table. It's also surrounded by modular cabinets filled with accessories and dinnerware. To save time and effort going to and from the kitchen to get drinks and refreshments, one of the cabinets houses a refrigerator and wine cooler.

4. Den

Since it's important to spend quality time with the whole family, we can only imagine the whole clan watching movies in the den. We can't blame them if they would want to stay in this room all day! Apart from the cozy ambiance, it also has a comfy leather sofa and inviting armchairs reminiscent of actual theater seats!

5. The Tropical Feel in the Bedroom

Who wouldn't enjoy a good night's sleep in this bedroom? Owned by Elvis, it's the biggest room in the house and highlights a resort-like feel.

To create something similar, consider adding wooden touches to your space like accessories and furniture. You may also want to invest in mood lighting to set the theme.

6. The Welcoming Terrace

For this part of the home, Annabelle requested for a Bali-inspired look. To accomplish this, Jeizele worked with different plants, wooden elements, and furniture that would remind you of a resort. It's also not just a place for lounging—the terrace also has a coffee nook, a dining area, and a seating area.

The designer also added a bamboo mat on the ceiling with steel framing and polycarbonate to maintain the theme.

7. The Swimming Pool

Perhaps this is the special place where Annabelle and Eddie's grandkids would love to spend hot afternoons! To lighten up the feel of the outdoor area, colorful O'nest chairs made of molded plastic were added. It also has a grill—allowing the family and their friends to prep barbecues, burgers, and other classic favorites.

8. The Relaxing Cabana

Located near the swimming pool, the cabana features Kenneth Cobonpue pieces. Aside from serving as a calming escape, it's also perfect for pool parties and other gatherings with close friends.
