HOW TO ACHIEVE A FILIPINO STYLE HOME
There are many benefits to taking care of plants inside a home. Other than its air-purifying qualities, plants can make any home more inviting. Plants can also serve as additional decoration inside a home since they’re a great way to add a pop of color or complement other design elements.
However, most condominium units have very little access to sunlight. Because of this, there are only limited types of plants recommended for those living in a condo unit.
Check our list below for some of the popular indoor plants that are perfect for your home:
NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE
Wood tones and earth tones with accents of terracotta or mustard are a great way to start with. Homeowners can also decorate with paintings or trinkets within the neutral color palette or traditional Filipino designs.
WOOD MATERIALS AND DECOR
Furniture made from wood is typical in a Filipino household. It can be wooden tables, chairs, or accent pieces like shelves and figurines. There are different types of wood with different stains and shades. Having more than one type of wood is a great way to have a variety of colors if you don’t want a monochromatic look.
WOVEN OR RATTAN FURNITURE
Woven or Rattan furniture is also another staple in a Filipino household. Because of the country’s climate, these types of furniture are a great way to keep cool and comfortable due to their design.
A furniture, decor, or lighting fixture made from Capiz shells will definitely stand out. Though Capiz shells may be fragile, they are great interior pieces since they can be dyed, cut, and shaped to create various designs.
