MOD­ERN FILIPINO

STYLE Filipino dé­cor doesn’t have to be lim­ited to wooden

san­tos, bu­taca chairs, and other an­tique pieces. You can cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary Pi­noy style that is much lighter on the eye, and is more ap­pro­pri­ate for condo units. Cop th­ese tricks that dec­o­ra­tor Grace Moslares used in this Ta­gay­tay home. 1. Go for a sim­ple, mostly neu­tral color pal­ette. Grace worked with a lot of wood tones, painted the walls white, and put in a few back­splashes for some color. Sev­eral paint­ings also lent pops of color to the space

without dis­tract­ing from the main color pal­ette. 2. Use lo­cally avail­able ma­te­ri­als. For the wooden fur­ni­ture in this fam­ily home, Grace made sure to source lo­cally avail­able wood. She also pep­pered the space with fur­nish­ings made of dis­tinctly Pi­noy ma­te­ri­als like capiz and rat­tan. 3. Break the look with sleek

pieces and ac­cents. To tem­per the Pi­noy vibe, throw in a few mod­ern touches. Grace went for a pre­dom­i­nantly black, sleek kitchen here, but was care­ful to still add a few wood-toned el­e­ments to tie in the look of the en­tire home.
