F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!! Today is the day that we open our doors to all of you and show you our humble abode! Welcome to the #SKYPOD!
This will be the very last (and the grandest) episode of the #Skypod tour series. We’re taking you to our living area, dining area, all the way to our masters bedroom, my walk-in closet PLUS my newly finished home office and guest room!
LIVING, DINING, KITCHEN AREA
Let’s get started shall we? Right when you enter, you see our living area right away. It’s made to be open because we wanted it to be the space where our little family can bond (Slater, specifically wanted this layout because he doesn’t want our future kids to stay in their rooms all the time!)
The overall layout sets out a casual feel – which what Slater & I initially wanted to achieve for the #Skypod. Nothing too formal and not a lot of hidden corners. If you’re in the living area, you can instantly see what’s happening in the kitchen or dining area. And when you’re in the kitchen, you can still hang out with everyone watching TV!
GUEST ROOM & HOME OFFICE
These are the only two rooms in the #Skypod that Slater allowed me to paint in a non-neutral color. What do you think? I thought the colored wall would add an easy layer of interest without having to invest in big art or decorative pieces. The colors also give an instant vibe to the rooms, don’t you think? We picked our favorite swatches from Island Paints and narrowed it down to these two. They are such good colors! These two rooms are the latest finished projects we’ve done. I actually posted a separate video of my home office tour which you can watch here.
MASTER'S BEDROOM + MY WALK-IN CLOSET
Just by looking at the photo, I can already feel the coziness and calmness of our room. Save for when the sun shines early in the morning! It gets super duper hot even with the blinds rolled down because of the ceiling-to-floor glass windows! But don’t worry, we’re working on a solution as we speak!
I don’t know if you’ve noticed but we don’t really have any more furniture in our bedroom – apart from our comfy bed and the HOLY GRAIL massage chair (Hi, Ogawa Philippines!). I initially wanted to have a TV inside but Slater specifically wanted this place to be a space of rest- no distractions! And actually, I think he really has a point – it’s like your telling your body “It’s time to sleep” right when you walk in!
Aaaand last but definitely not the least, here we have the most picturesque view of the Skypod! I mean, how can you not fall in love with this view everyday? In fact, one of my favorite things to do as soon as I get up in the morning is to go outside with @Skyskybear and just breathe in the fresh breeze and listen to the chirping of the birds. Not to forget greeting our friendly neighbor, Mr. Carabao a good morning!
I think one of the best things about having a glass house is having good lighting almost any time of the day. I love staying in well lit areas because it makes me feel so fresh and productive! What makes the Skypod even better is the wide outdoor space. You can even spot our growing pine tree and the ever so famous cactus plant!
ALSO, how can I forget to mention our SWIMMING POOL? It’s like being in a resort 24/7 – the ultimate dream! Hahaha! Slater made sure that even though we don’t get to swim every single day, we can still make “use” out of it for aesthetic purposes since the swimming pool extends from the indoor space to the outdoors area. Nothing beats a good pool view while eating dinner or how it shines in the afternoons!
