In January, SM Home assistant vice president Tom Castaneda opened five room vignettes at the SM Home bridgeway in Makati featuring light and bright interiors to welcome the new year. This month, he changed everything and turned up the heat by painting the walls with three colors from the palette Maximal of Color Trend 2017. These are the intense hues of yellow and blue called Tuscan Sun and Designer Denim, respectively, and a cool greyish-green named High Society. Tom worked together with stylist Leona Laviña-Panutat to create what he called the “Looks of Love.” You won’t see any reds but the intensity is there! Here are the two friends taking a short rest in the middle of all the flurry. Kitchen, Dining Room and Home Office Tom designed the kitchen, dining room and home office spaces, and used vivid wall colors. He painted the kitchen and dining room walls with the…

For the outdoorsy type who wants to bring the blues of Boracay and Bohol into your kitchen, here’s a brightly intense blue from the Boysen Color Trend 2017 called Rebel Yell. This is a kitchen for those people who may love food but do not want to spend too much time indoors to prepare it themselves. Give them a great coffeemaker and a small fridge, a few dishes, and that would be enough. They have better things to do, adventures to take, new worlds to conquer. This kitchen vignette is one of five under the concept Complete Your Home, an inspired idea from Tom Castaneda, AVP Marketing of SM Home. Steal some ideas for your own kitchen and visit this exhibit in the bridgeway at the 5th floor of SM Makati on or before August 31.

The Boysen Color Trend 2017 has many blues – all bold, buoyant and beautiful. For this month’s SM Home’s Complete Your Home, Tom Castaneda, AVP Marketing, chose three: Rebel Yell Rebel Yell belongs to the palette Maximal. It has the bright, intense blue of lapis lazuli. Rebel Yell was used to paint the kitchen vignette, giving energy to the space, which is very fitting for a place where food is prepared, food being the fuel required by all of us to keep living full lives. Designer Denim Used in the living room vignette, Designer Denim is even deeper in color than Rebel Yell. It is a bold color, dark in hue but not sombre.  Paired with light warm greys and a muted orange, the living room becomes a place where you can relax and find your balance. Space Encounter Space Encounter, the lightest blue in the trio, has a tinge…

“Wait for us!” I helplessly called out to my younger cousins who were already lost in the maze of colorful blocks, which, up until then, they had only seen on iPad screens while playing Minecraft. Who could blame them for being so eager? Against the pale whites of the mall’s walls and floors, the vibrant fortress that was the Boysen Mix and Match Color Play set-up drew kids and grown-ups alike into a playground of blocks and paint, a free-of-charge opportunity to have some fun and to showcase creativity. A post shared by Boysen Paints Philippines (@boysenpaintsphilippines) on May 30, 2017 at 9:53pm PDT Awaken the Child Walking into the color maze, you’ll find large glass cubes filled with shapes of different colors; once you’ve chosen four, you’ll be lead into an open space with stations of paints and brushes at your disposal. If you’re looking for a way for…

Maximal is an exuberant palette, one of the four comprising the Boysen Color Trend 2017. The jewel tones of blue, yellow, red and pink invite the intrepid individual to create a space celebrating his or her individuality. Maximal includes a  light grey to provide the rest amidst this color explosion. Bold, vibrant, and flamboyant, it takes its inspiration from florals. At first glance, it would seem that Maximal is a feminine palette. Think of a doyenne’s domain or a precocious girl’s boudoir, or the living space of a woman in her prime who plays by her own rules. But what makes this palette versatile is that men can use it too, if they have developed the refinement to mine its masculine undertones, or if they have the self-assurance to show their feminine side. Tired of playing it safe? Use this palette with no fear, no apologies. There are four palettes in Color Trend 2017 – Tradition, Technology, Maximal…
