Being the heart of the home, the kitchen plays an important role in bringing families closer together and making guests feel comfortable and at home. Like all the rooms in the house, the kitchen is also a reflection of yourself—your personality, style and taste. The ideal kitchen should then not only be fully functional and organized but should also exude a welcoming atmosphere matching the owner’s own warmth and character.  A touch of color can instantly liven up your kitchen and achieve any look you like. For instance, nature-based colors easily create a calming and tranquil space, while more vibrant hues results in a cheerier and more exciting mood. Check out these kitchen paint ideas you may want to adopt to spice up the heart of your home. Looking for fresh kitchen paint ideas to liven up your home?

We don’t have Target in the Philippines but I wish they had an outlet here because I love their newest in-house decor brand called Opalhouse. The Boho Chic vibe of the latest home decor collection is perfect for sultry summer days and nights with their bold colors, the use of cane or wood for furniture, tassels reminiscent of Moroccan poufs, macramé, velvet upholstery, weaves, and the glint of metal. For the slide show above, we’ve included recommendations for wall paint colors. For some, we’ve provided neutral colors. But if you want to really go for a Boho Chic look, dark, intense or vivid colors are your friends. What is Boho Chic? Boho Chic is a style which draws on bohemian and hippie influences. It’s mixing old and new items from different cultural origins. It’s mixing styles too. Even textures are plentiful and varied, like using velvet, silk, wood, metal, weaves,…

Last February, to celebrate love month, the 3rd Year DJC LIACOM Students from University of San Jose Recoletos (USJR) took over Cebu’s biggest weekend food market – Sugbo Mercado for a totally pink makeover.   Fresh from their #setinthestreetcebu project at the historic grounds of Magellan’s Cross in downtown Cebu City, the students of USJR’s Set Design & Build Class headed over to Sugbo Mercado at the Cebu IT Park to revamp their entrance facade. Think Pink The entrance facade also serves as a Photo Booth where customers can take pictures, check-in to the venue and post on social media. Instead of the boring old wood design, the class partnered with Boysen for the project and brought in some blushing bright shades using the colors Party Time, Pink Explosion and Bunny Fluff. Boysen x Sugbo Mercado Sugbo Mercado, located in Cebu’s BPO and Lifestyle Hub, is the first and biggest…

Carlo came up with an inspired idea to mix and match colors and have an accent wall in his Mom’s neighborhood fruit bar.  He made a geometric pattern on the wall using triangles and painting them with fresh colors. Mix & Match Colors Carlo chose paint colors of mango, cantaloupe, orange, sunshine, blue skies and soft earth. The wall becomes such a feast for the eyes. It’s a veritable cornucopia of delight and goodness, perfect for a place where people come to refresh themselves. Having this kind of wall in your home really jazzes up a space. If you keep the rest of the space calm and make the accent wall the focal point of a room, then you bring in excitement into your home, without making it overwhelming. In choosing the colors, use a color wheel or choose palettes from Boysen Color Trends. We’ve talked a lot about an accent…

Are you willing to envision your 2018 to burst with colors? Or would you prefer the safe route of same old same old? For many of us comfort zones are important, those invisible barriers we create to limit our lives to what is comfortable and known to us. However if we embrace changes in life, and they do come with regularity, our experiences may surprise us with greater and deeper personal growth. Doors and Social Norms Let’s take doors, for instance, since those are tangible and something we see everyday when we leave and come back to our homes. Most of us have doors that are colored white or brown, or something similar in tint. In other words, we go for neutrals because it’s safe, acceptable, and within the social norms. “From a sociological perspective, social norms are informal understandings that govern the behavior of members of a society” (Marshall, G. Oxford…

“Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.” ― Peg Bracken How would you like to spend an intimate date with your special someone without having to brave the Christmas rush? No need to travel bumper-to-bumper to go to a restaurant. No need to elbow your way into an overcrowded establishment that is more often than not so noisy as Filipino restaurants usually are. Why don’t you do something specially romantic and prepare a divine dinner date at home together? You can really stretch out the anticipation as well as the time together – from discussing and deciding on the menu, to buying the ingredients, to cooking and baking, to setting up the table, to sharing the meal prepared with love. Prepare appetizers and side dishes beforehand, chill the wine or beer or poison of your choice, and while the main course is…

There are some things that belong together, like ham and egg, needle and thread, song and dance, hugs and kisses. I’m sure you get my drift. The same is true with colors. There are just those two that belong together, and we’d like to expound about those color pairings one by one (or is it two by two :)). Black and white, you can’t get more basic than that. Perhaps because the combination is primal, it is very powerful and dramatic. If you want a timeless and elegant color combination, go for black and white. Stark and pure, these would look apropos of a minimalist style. This combination can be very graphic. When you want to showcase shapes and lines, the color pairing of black and white acts like a backdrop that allows for vividness in detail. Taken to an extreme, it can look harsh and grim, even desolate.  And…

SM Home started with their Christmas preparations early, and came up with four holiday hues: 1) Classic Charm, 2) Contemporary Luxe, 3) Modern Opulence, and 4) Pretty Whimsical. Here are some living room paint ideas from Boysen based on the holiday hue Contemporary Luxe. Gold and silver —  their gleam add such a luxe vibe to any Christmas tableau. Who wouldn’t want that gorgeous glitter to help make your holiday season shine like no other? Very fitting for festivities with family and friends at home. ‘From angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold’ to ‘silver bells’, those are the sparkles we’d like. No frost, no snow or ice to glisten in this country, but who cares? We can always bring some of that into our homes with all the bells, balls, baubles and tinsel available. Add fairy lights for more sparkle, and you’ve got that Christmas…

DIY condo painting is something Danica embraced when she moved to Cebu for work, and that’s what you can do too to make a home you really love. Whether you rent your home or own it, you deserve a space that fits your personality. After all, your home is your nest, your sanctuary, the place you go to so you can rest and re-energize. How can you make your private space your own when you’ve just moved in? You can have your own familiar things around you. For a bigger impact, you can also put your stamp on it by changing the colors that surround you. It’s kind of like having the same kind of vibration inside you and outside you. Colors can do that. And paint, which is affordable, quick and effective, is the tool that you can use to get that coherence. Danica went the extra mile by giving…
