RELEASE OF MASCULINITY


Though I'm naturally girly, my taste in homes for some reason, release my inner masculinity. Fine horizontal and vertical lines entice me, often inexplicably encouraging me to take a second look at a home. The more lean and less fuzzy, the better.

Ever since I could remember, beautiful homes have given me much delight, making me wish I took up Architecture instead of Interior Design. Haha.

Like in my previous post (link), none of the pictures below belong to me. Even if so, do enjoy! :)


White + Wood + Stainless Steel = Forever a Classic in Modern Design


Some people have great appreciation for the crowning glory's (roof) of their home. The owner's of the house above, is one perfect example. 

Homes have become quite industrial-looking


Feeling a tad bit too bored about owning a purely white structure? A pinch of color like the lime-green detail on the facade above is bound to do the trick. :)

Modern yet very homey

Once again on the usual industrial-looking homes

One word: COZY!

So white! So white!

Feels like a smaller, yet more geometric version of the Cullen's home (#fanmuch)

Reminiscent of a barcode

Reminds me of Robot in Makati!

Wood details will forever add the warmth one sought's after in a home

Simple yet wow.

The repetition of varnishes used created a very elegant and eloquent-looking modern home 

Modern homes need not always be filled with just horizontal and vertical lines

W.O.W.

The dark -colored tiles fool one to think that the home is afloat.


More photos to come!

YUMMY, CANDY BATHROOMS


While looking around for bathroom ideas, I stumbled upon various ways to prettify a bathroom. With so much options on the web to see (including modern, ethnic, etc.), there is no telling what you can stumble into next. 

While going from one website to another, I found several pictures of cute, colorful bathrooms and/ or bathroom fixtures. Though it is common knowledge that most people would have their private bathrooms designed otherwise, these pictures that serve as inspirations are too adorable to miss. :) 

None of these pictures are mine but, do relish them! :)

The lime green detail sticks out like a sore thumb as against to the white walls and fixtures and, the black tiles :)


Purple has always been one of my favorite colors! Can you imagine your bathroom to be monopolized by your favorite hue?

The striped-detail is just too adorable!

Colorful tiles for an instant pizzazz, anyone?


Another too-cute-to-miss photo!



Little girls would love to have this kind of a bathroom!

Lastly, here are some photos of a colorful public bathroom designed specially for children. Enjoy! :)







I'll be posting more pictures from my research / compilation in a few.

MAROON IS TO DOCS


After creating a set for the yellow-colored doc's, I remembered how much
I fancy the maroon-colored one too! :)

A note to keep in mind is that dresses do look cute and edgy when paired
with tough boots.
They give a totally different vibe to an originally feminine get-up! :)
Also, the colors you put on don't necessarily have to match. In the end, it's all about
how you carry yourself. :)

YELLOW IS TO DOCS

I've always wanted yellow-colored grunge boots. What's great is that they're
so IN this season! <3 With the crazy wind and rain abound us, putting these babies on
can never be as perfect of a timing as ever.

Want to make these booties fit your feminine do's? Pair the boots with
a cute dress and top it with colorful accessories like below! :)

AMPARO & LUDING AT THE RUINS 2010

PART TWO OF AMPARO AND LUDING

As I said yesterday, I have more to post from the photos Amparo just recently uploaded. Here are some photos taken of us  during my first ever visit to the Lacson Ruin's in Bacolod late last year. 

My hair is still so short here!





I really love how the descendants of the Lacson Ruin's have transformed the place into a fine dining restaurant while still retaining the home's original aura.





I've already blogged about the Lacson Ruin's before. To check my previous post out, click this link
