5 Styles from SM Home

It was a breath of fresh air to see home styling vignettes at the fifth floor of SM Makati during my recent visit at their home section.

Here are their five styling vignettes and what I love about each of them:

Lovin’ Balay Dako’s Style

Antonio’s Balay Dako restaurant in Tagaytay is definitely on the top of my favorite restaurant interiors in the country.  I always have this feeling of being at home (or visiting my lola‘s home) and having that light feeling every time I visit.  But I always forget to take photos of the interiors and so finally during my recent visit, I took photos of the things that I love about their interior style.  But of course, nothing beats the view of the Taal Volcano from their dining room.

5 Things I Loved About Our Glamp Site

I’m lucky to have found friends who wanted to try glamping with me.  It’s been on my list of things to experience for quite some time now.  I found the perfect glamp site in Nayomi Sanctuary Resort in Balete, Batangas.  It was an easy breezy trip that took less than an hour to reach the resort (thanks to the SLEX and Star Tollway connection).

The English Rose Tea Room

My sister and I love going to tea rooms for afternoon tea.  Every time I visit her in the Bay Area in California we make it a point to schedule an afternoon tea date.  I even want to open my own tea room in Manila! I hope that dream will happen soon.

The first one we tried was The English Rose in downtown Pleasanton, California.  I loved their mismatched  furniture and tea sets, the variety of tea and all the little details they put in for a wonderful afternoon tea experience.  It was also a full house and it took us days to get a table!

The lovely tea room with mismatched furniture, chandeliers and flowers.

MaArte Bazaar Fave Finds

Last Friday I visited the MaArte Bazaar (for the first time!) at 8 Rockwell.  There were three home furniture and decor companies that I really loved.  I want their pieces to be part of my home!

I’m such a big fan of bar carts and daybeds!  So when I saw their bar carts, I couldn’t get over them!  I first saw their booth at ArtifactPH in Alabang Town Center last July and I loved their daybed!
