Living room Christmas decoration


Merry Christmas to each and everyone around the world!

It's Christmas holiday once again! Putting Christmas decoration in our house has been a tradition in celebrating Christmas. More so, it’s always been the thing that lightened up our mood for the season.  In the Philippines, the living room is usually became the center of attraction for our Christmas decorations.  Although, most of the families are gathered in the dining area where they eat together during Christmas Eve, but there are some would like it to happen in the living room with the huge Christmas tree.  A living room without Christmas tree/decoration becomes dull. One better way to welcome Christmas is making our home a small festival of joy.

Every person has each own way of decorating one's living room depending on our personal taste. We even search it through web to find more ideas on the theme or motif/design, etc to satisfy our decoration style. From cookies to the Christmas tree, from the ornaments to the chocolates, there is a wide range of items you can display on your creativity.

Here is a sample of a beautiful living room which I designed.  I hope you’ll be inspired.

Modern Dining and Kitchen Design Combine.




In the West, a modern residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove, a sink with hot and cold running water, a refrigerator and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design. Many households have a microwave oven, a dishwasher and other electric appliances. The main function of a kitchen is cooking or preparing food but it may also be used for dining.

A dining room is a room for consuming food. In modern times it is usually adjacent to the kitchen for convenience in serving, although in medieval times it was often on an entirely different floor level. Historically the dining room is furnished with a rather large dining table and a number of dining chairs; the most common shape is generally rectangular with two armed end chairs and an even number of un-armed side chairs along the long sides.

The whole idea of combining these two areas the dining and the kitchen is to make serving meals so much easier and the cleaning after the meal. There's no need of moving between two rooms not to mention that you save a lot of time and of course space. The addition of a television in the Dining is not common to the majority but to some they love watching television while cooking and dining. I think every homeowner should take good care of how this room will look like by creating something that will perfectly reflect the owner's personality and style. There are so many styles that we can choose from, we can even browse the net of styles that we want it could be classic, country, contemporary or modern style.

Personally, as you can see in my design I love modern design. I always wanted to have my own modern dining and kitchen room that is why I design one. For those of you who are looking for an inspiration of modern dining and kitchen room in the Philippines here's my simple modern design that might inspire you or something of that nature.

Boy's Room


Do you have a son or a teenager boy who keeps on asking you to provide him a separate room that he can call his own?  Your son is growing up so fast, right? And he is asking little by little for his independence. Now he might be asking you already for his own bedroom apart from his siblings.

Well, designing a bedroom for your boy's is not really as hard as it may seems. The very obvious thing to do in designing your boy's room is to ask him what he really want, and know what his hobbies are. Involve your son in the design process; in the first place it is his room. I'm sure your son had already in his mind the room he always wanted. A computer desktop for his school works and research, a flat screen TV with that entire game console or a play station, maybe. He might also want a sofa with a center table in his bedroom.

Given those items and furniture I have mention do you think it will all fit in one regular size room? Maybe you will think it's impossible, it might need a bigger room for that kind of room. It's seems like a master bedroom suite already without those walk-in closet and bathroom.  Well, I think you have to consider this boy's room that I did. See for yourself and decide.



Actually, this is neither my idea nor my designs. I got this idea of a room from Evermotion website. Evermotion is a 3d visualization hub for worlwide designers, architects, interior designers and 3d artist. I just add some elements and features to enhance this boy's room.

Elevated House Design 2

Folks, are you planning to build or construct your own dream house soon?  Next year or in the coming future?  Or just plain curious about how to start making your dream house come true?  Then, you have browsed just the right page.
Yes!  Level up to a three-story elevated house.  You may have just been waiting for this second design to perfectly suit your requirement for a flood-free elevated house, while offering a spectacular view.  Obviously, there's no such thing as an absolute flood -free design.  Available designs have been made only to minimize the impact of floods, typhoons, and incessant rains in the Philippines.

So what’s new with this second design?  This design is as interesting as the first one, except for the additional floor which gives your family an elevated protection.  Take a closer look at the additional space in this design, yet in a relatively inexpensive manner. You now have two options to choose from. It's up to you to decide. The first one has only two levels above the ground while this one has three floors. The next obvious difference is the height of the first level from the ground line. The first design has 2.25 meters in height from the ground to the first level while the second one is only 1.65 meters high. These choices must give you more freedom to complement your design with the chosen location. Anyway, the real difference lies in your taste, preference, and your budget. You may think that your area is not in the flood danger zone but think with me, it is always wise to be on the defensive mode in protecting your property or business and of course your family.

Philippine Flood-Proof Elevated House Design



Is your house located within or near the flood danger zone (refer to http://www.nababaha.com/)?  Was your house badly devastated by the recent floods in the Philippines due to the heavy rains caused by the southwest monsoon (habagat) that lasted for several days?  Or have you moved on from the loss of a loved one from typhoons Ketsana (Ondoy) and Washi (Sendong)?  The loss of lives and properties due to climate change is, indeed, alarming.  If you are currently planning for house or building construction or reconstruction in an area prone to flooding, consider this elevated house design which reduces the impact of flooding and hopefully alleviates financial costs.

Emotionally stunned at the catastrophic damages by the recent typhoons and floods that have brought to my Motherland, I, as a Filipino architect, have come up with a practical, cost-effective, and sustainable design in protecting Filipino homes from the adverse effects of floods.  Even if the chosen location to construct your house may seem to be flood-free, it is always wise to be on the defensive mode in protecting your family. You’ve got to see my design which I call the “Philippine Flood-Proof Elevated House Design”.

Interior Color Design


The greatest challenge in color design is to be able to predict and control the result of a color scheme. Effective color selection can be an inexpensive yet powerful element in any design. Color can perform a multitude of roles and can affect a person's emotions, energy level, and sense of order, or disorder. As well, it can set the tone of an interior and make it seem formal or informal, masculine or feminine, cooly aloof or invitingly warm. The aim of successful interior color design is to be able to control these effects through the masterful use of color as a design tool itself.


Some client ask their designer what is the right color for them. Well, that is a good question indeed. To answer that question let me share with you the interview of Ms. Erin Cecille Langan (design director of DWP) which is done by sigma paints. DWP (Design Worldwide Partnership) is an interior design and architectural practice with 12 offices and over 450 staff located in the middle east and Asia.


 What is the right color for me?
I believe the right color is the color that brings you the most happiness. There is no right or wrong choice. Whatever one feels most drawn to or intuitively inspired by is "right". Color, as with creativity, should have few rules and one should consider it an area for vast exploration.
What are the tools used to define the right color for my environment?
As a design director for DWP,I rely heavily on the natural environment where my project is located. I often take stones, sand, leaves and shells to obtain a computer paint match that creates a soothing interiors color for wherever the project might be located in the world.
How important is color in interior design?
There have been many studies especially with regards to healthcare interiors, that indicate color and the environment make a great impact on the time it takes a person to heal. DWP is working in the healthcare market to bring softer, warmer hues to hospitals and clinic with a residential feel.



What are the main psychological effects of color?
In interior design, color is used to specific purposes depending on the setting. When DWP does restaurant design, we rely heavily on reds, and oranges as they create more energy and sense of urgency allowing the restaurant owner a higher table turn for their setting groups. Likewise, spa design often tends to a cooler palette of blues and greens as this direction encourages peace and relaxation.
What are the main physiological effects of color?
There is a vast array of studies that have been done on this topic. One example is how color impact moods, feelings, and behaviours, by Kendra Cherry, several ancient cultures, including the Egyptians and Chinese, practice chromotheraphy, or using colors to heal. Chromotheraphy is sometimes referred to as light therapy or colourology  and still used today as a holistic or alternative treatment. In this treatment:
Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation.
Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body.
Orange was used to heal the lungs and to increase energy levels.
Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain.
Indigo shades were thought to alleviate skin problems.


How can different colors affect your mood?
Studies have shown that this varies from person to person. It can also be influenced by regional or historical factors. The colors that remind you of a happy memory or have an emotional appeal from your home country can be elevating for the mood.
How can different paint colors affect a person's mental state and his reaction to different situations?
Given that paint is usually the dominant finish in the person's environment, it is a large part of our everyday lives. Taking the time to understand which colors will promote positive and peaceful feelings in one's home and work environment can create a more peaceful and harmonious society.
How can different colors affect our health in a positive way?
Colors that brings one joy will decrease stress and anxiety. The places that we spend the most amount of time should reflect the color palettes that enhances a positive feeling when we are surrounded by them.
How can we define color as per the functional area of our environment?
As an Interior designer, color is often used to cue clients to circulation paths, hierarchy of space, featured walls, and identity areas of importance. It can shape a space simply by creating areas of focus that either grab our attention or allow certain areas to pass unnoticed.

Vacation House

When I was in my younger days, I used to dream a lot and one of which is to have a vacation house. I remembered my family used to travel to Bohol (one of the beautiful places in the Philippines) during holidays and spent time with our relatives. One night, I stayed outside of the house sitting on the rock enjoying the cool breeze of the night while viewing the beautiful landscape facing the ocean.  An idea pop up in my mind saying “what if I build a vacation house in this place with a swimming pool”.  This could be the best place where my family and relatives could have fun and share quality time together. . It was really fun thinking of that dream. Of course, it ended up with a smile while walking back home for a dinner.

I am now in my thirties and I’ll keep on dreaming again and again.  I don’t mind when such dream would be realized as I believed that dream is a God’s blessing and seedlings of our reality.

To keep visualizing my dream house, I sketch a design of a house which for me suitable to my dream vacation house. Below is the perspective of the vacation house.

 I think those series of day dreaming I had at a young age was never been a waste of time. In fact it was a visual aid to what I really want to have in the near future.

Friends, I am not an expert, but I believe that it is indeed necessary for all of us, both young and old to keep dreaming, believing in our dream, and put our dream into action.

I even start to understand that every great leader and successful people from the dawn of civilization down to the present was a dreamer who puts their dreams into action. 

Let us not forget, Columbus who dreamed of an unknown world staked his life on the existence of such a world, and discovered it. Henry Ford, a poor and uneducated, dreamed of a horseless carriage, went to work with what tools he possessed, without waiting for opportunity to favor him, and now evidence of his dream belts the entire earth. Thomas Edison dreamed of a lamp that could be operated by electricity, began where he stood to put his dream into action and despite more than ten thousand failures, he stood by that dream until he made it a physical reality. The Wright brothers dreamed of a machine that would fly through the air. Now one may see evidence all over the world that they dreamed soundly. Practical dreamers do not quit.

The greatest achievements were, at first and for a time, but a dream.

So long fellows, together we say it out loud with conviction,
In God’s name I will live my dreams. 

Living the dream,

Modern Living Room

In Western architecture, a living room or lounge room  is a room in a residential house for relaxing and socializing. Such a room is sometimes called a front room when it is near the main entrance at the front of the house. The term sitting room is sometimes used synonymously with living room, although a sitting room may also occur in a hotel or other public building. The term living room was coined in the late 18th or early 19th century.
A typical Western living room may contain such a sofa, chairs, occasional tables, and bookshelves, electric lamps, rugs, or other furniture. Traditionally, a sitting room in the United Kingdom and New Zealand has a fireplace. In a Japanese sitting room, called a washitsu, the floor is covered with tatami, sectioned mats on which people can sit comfortably.
In larger homes in the United States and Canada, the living room may be reserved for more formal and quiet entertaining, while a separate room—such as a den, family room, or recreation room is used for leisure and informal entertainment. A great room combines the functions of one or more of these rooms.

Source: wikipedia

As we all know that living room is considered as one of the most important rooms in the entire house. It is not just a place for relaxation that welcomes guest and visitors but it also serves as the focal point and acts as the showcase of the house that brings comfort and joy to all members of the house.

I think every homeowner should take good care of how this room will look like by creating something that will perfectly reflect the owners personality and style. There are so many styles that we can choose from, we can even browse the net of styles that we want it could be classic, country, contemporary or modern style with those clean lines.

Personally, as you can see in my design I love modern design. I always wanted to have my own modern living room that is why I design one. The modern living rooms of today have surpassed expectations of the sci-fi movies of yesterday. The rooms now not just provide relaxation and entertainment but exhibit an elegance and finesse that provides pure viewing pleasure.

For those of you who are looking for an inspiration of modern living room in the Philippines here's my simple modern living room design that might inspire you or something of that nature. 


Here's another view of this modern living room....

Friends, this might not be the very best online interior design you can see in the Philippines but for me it doesn't matter. Folks, Every house is a dream come true. First it starts in our thoughts, in our mind, or in our dreams, then it manifest. Now folks, are you living your dream house? The answer lies deep with in you. Keep believing in your dreams. Keep dreaming, because our dreams are the seedling of our reality.

Living - Dining Room

Hi there! Allow me to share some interior design today. I call it living - dining room. Although, it is really not my design. It is the design of my colleague in the office. My participation in this project was to make the 3d visualization. This apartment interior design is supposed to be build somewhere in Europe, but you can used this as well as your interior design concept in the Philippines.

As you have noticed the design of this interior living- dining room is modern and international. I mean you can used this design concept where ever you maybe. Nowadays, designers all over the world have something in common. Through the help of the internet architects and interior designers learned from each other in just a click away from their computer.

By the way here's the 3d visualization that I make for this living- dining interior design, hope you will like it.




Again, this might neither be the very best house design nor the best online interior design you can see in the Philippines but if you could only borrow the eyes of the owner, you will see what we are talking about Folks, Every house is a dream come true. First it starts in our thoughts, in our mind, or in our dreams, then it manifest. Now folks, are you living your dream house? The answer lies deep with in you. Keep believing in your dreams.

Two-Storey House In Cebu

I know, I know, and I know! This two-story house looks familiar to you, isn’t it? If you happen to see my old blog entitled two-storey house you might had seen this before. Well, you are right and I’m sorry for that. I decide to post this two-story house again because this is my latest project. The only difference is the location for this house to be built. This time this two-storey house in God’s grace will be built soon in the island of Cebu, Philippines particularly in Talisay City, although, the owner is still looking for a perfect lot and location for this house.

You know what guys; I was amazed by the dreams and desire of this owner to build his dream house. Although they already own a house in Cebu, Philippines but it’s not the house of his dream. One day while he was browsing the internet he was able to drop by at this blogsite of mine. In his own word he says “I was mesmerized by your dream house design”. By that moment on he sends me right away an email asking for more details. To make the story short we are already in the middle of our deal to finish it. Not only that, I was also amazed, knowing that he still did not have a land to build with. He decides first what his dream house will look like and then look for that perfect lot of his dream house. Wow!!! Can you believe that? Normally, we buy first a land and then we look for an architect to design our dream house, right? But this owner does the exact opposite. He does the other way around. Isn’t it great and amazing?

You may ask me, is it possible architect? Of course! It is. With God all things are possible. You only need to believe it. For this, I salute you both Sir and Ma’am. I will pray that soon you can find the perfect lot and location for your dream house. I will also pray that God will bless you more financially and physically so that you can build this dream house of yours. In God’s name you will live your dream house.

Here’s the front view…


Again, this might neither be your very best house design nor the best architectural design online or the best online interior design you can see in the world or in the Philippines but if you could only borrow the eyes of the owner, you will see what we are talking about.. Folks, Every house are a dream come true. First it starts in our thoughts, in our mind, or in our dreams, then it manifest.

Now folks, are you living your dream house? The 
answer lies deep with in you. Keep believing in your dreams. Keep dreaming, because dreams are the seedlings of our reality.

So long fellows, together we say it out loud with conviction,

In God’s name I will live my dreams.
