Last September 26, Bea Alonzo finally took us on a tour inside her beautiful and cozy house through the 16-minute vlog she uploaded on her official YouTube channel. Serving as her home sweet home in the past eight years already, it has definitely changed and evolved like her through the years, according to her.
In the beginning, she shared that the house was renovated last year, not with its structure, but more on the furniture. Having an interior designer friend really pays for her as she revealed that her friend was able to put her vision of their home into reality. As many of us worry a lot about the theme we would want for our abodes, she advised everyone to not get caught up with it as we should focus instead on how our homes would make us feel.
Moving on to the tour, the 32-year-old actress initially took us to the foyer that has a ceiling and walls made up of capiz shells and boasts a magnificent and ornate chandelier.
Heading on to her office, she admitted the least used room, yet it is where she keeps her memorabilia, awards, book collection, digital paintings collection, and the collaborative artwork of fashion photographer Mark Nicdao and French figurative painter and capoeirista Henry Lami. It has a small but elegant powder room, which has mosaic tiles design.
It’s really obvious how Bea has a heart for supporting creations of local artists, such as the eccentric sink in her powder room created by Filipino pottery artist Ugu Bigyan and the beautiful painting she acquired from Philippine National Artist Arturo Luz. In her living room are her favorite diamond chairs, a comfy couch, and a “twiggy floor lamp.”
On the centerpiece table, we can see a Michael Cacnio creation that was actually gifted to her by ex-boyfriend Zanjoe Marudo. She was contemplating before whether to display it after their breakup, but she really found it beautiful and it reminds her of their good memories.
Another local creation that Bea has is the collage art made by conceptual artist and curator Garry-Ross Pastrana, which is actually composed of different pictures of Anne Curtis’ body parts turned into a single collage. Another local art that Bea has in her home is a sculpture by modern and contemporary painter Lynyrd Paras. Aside from these, we can actually see a lot more local paintings and sculptures displayed around Bea’s house, making it look like a mini museum.
Moving on to her most used part of the house, she took us to her neat and elegant kitchen. She expressed how she really loves to cook for people, especially for her family and her friends, and confessed drinking up to five cups of coffee everyday. She also has a cute teacup collection, which some were actually gifted by her friends, and a pantry that contains a plethora of food items – just like a grocery store!
Despite being tagged “dirty kitchen”, it still looks elegant and functional as it serves as her utility area as well.
Bea then showed us her spacious garden and exquisite lanai, which she turned into an art studio as that’s the place where she does her newest hobby – painting! Bea added this can also be the place where her mom can unwind whenever she visits.
Watch out for the second part of Bea’s house tour where she finally shows her room!
