Time­less pieces, like a grand­fa­ther clock and baul, are best placed in pub­lic ar­eas where they can be show­cased. Adding to the an­tique feel of this vi­gnette are old fam­ily pho­tos in em­bel­lished frames.

1. WIDE OPEN. Sil­ver hard­ware on steel-framed glass doors add to the vin­tage feel.

3. TIMES GONE BY. The fam­ily pa­tri­arch's pen­chant for pho­tog­ra­phy is im­mor­tal­ized in these blackand-white pho­tos he him­self de­vel­oped.

2. KEEP­SAKES APLENTY. A col­lec­tion of old photo frames holds trea­sured me­men­tos in­clud­ing cloth from an old barong Ta­ga­log used by Dudi's fa­ther.

4. MOD­EST TONES. Amidst mostly an­tique fur­ni­ture, an oc­ca­sional burst of color is found in ac­ces­sories such as this painted mother-and -daugh­ter statue.
