So there, wacha think guys?!?!?!!? I really, really hope you guys like our pad. It’s nothing fancy and it’s far from fabulous—but it is a home we are very blessed to call our own. More than anything, this really is a gift from the LORD and we will forever be grateful for it. 🙂
After 15 months of marriage and loft-dwelling, I think it’s high time I reveal our humble abode to YOU, yes YOU—my beloved readers. You’ve probably seen snippets of my home in some of the posts here or on IG/Twitter, but today I’m putting our home in full display! Welcome to Casa Filart 🙂 🙂
Our loft is featured in this month’s Condo Living magazine, so please show some love and grab a copy to read more about our home decorating projects and funny stories. Oh and they didn’t include our tiny kitchen/pantry and Patrick’s “man corner” in this feature (with Pat’s photographer’s lamp, TV, Xbox, PS4, etc) so I’ll try to share those “areas” in my future posts. In the meantime, hope you enjoy this little tour of our condo.
Our bedroom has got to be my favorite place in our whole loft. It’s where I sleep (duh!), do movie and TV series marathons with my husband, late night snacking, blogging, etc. We converted the 2nd room into a mini editing suite for Patrick (slash walk in closet for me!) so I also have my workspace in our master’s bedroom which is why it’s my all around-rest-work-eat station.
I love having pictures scattered all over our home. I think photographs instantly convert a house into a home and adds a lot of warmth to an empty space. I had our wedding and prenup photographs printed on wood. You can order your prints online via www.mywoodencanvas.com. And for the space under our stairs, I had a door made so it could serve as storage space (to hide all the clutter!). Since it was a very plain (just a chunk of white!), I decided to post some of my favorite Instagram photos on it. So this is our “memory wall”–sort of an homage to the one we have in our Alabang home which has been my dad’s on going project for decades now.
Oh and I just have to mention this too! This is something I always tell my newlywed friends to invest in. One of our smartest splurges was this Inverter Aircon. We managed to get it at a good rate from Mr. Aircon. Their brand new aircons are priced much lower than the ones in the department stores/appliance centers and they provide installation services too. Although we sleep with just an electric fan on most days (we’re kuripot like that), having an inverter aircon is a God-send because we don’t feel too guilty when we choose to switch on the aircon because this unit is energy-efficient thus less costly.
