See Slater and Kryz Young's Skypod, Their Modern Mansion in Cebu
Slater Young and wife Kryz Uy Young shared glimpses into their modern home through a vlog. Aptly named Skypod (the acronym 'SKY' stands for Slater Kryz Young), their modern Cebu home is the mansion of our dreams.
The video begins with Slater and Kryz opening their main door to welcome viewers into their home. They share that their industrial-style house was actually designed to be a "modern version of a log cabin... a vacation home," Slater says. The predominantly slate gray home is accented by wooden furniture, lush greenery (like low-maintenance cactus), and a lot of leather seats like Kryz's adorable elephant ottoman. To brighten up the space, most areas of the house are covered in glass from floor to ceiling. "I wanted it to be very bright because I dont like living in dark spaces; I feel like it affects your mood all the time," Kryz says of her request to have natural light inside the house as much as possible.
Right outside the living room is the patio which can clearly be seen through the glass—a cool feature that makes it look like the living room and patio are one huge area. Right after the couple gives a tour of the living room and powder room (where Kryz "learned the art of siesta") they make their way towards the dining room where a Kenneth Cobonpue chandelier, which they fondly call Sia, lights up the space.
Aside from the glimmering pool that sits smackdab in the middle of the home for everyday "aesthetic" purposes, an oft-overlooked aspect of the house is the kitchen where guests apparently love to linger. Here, there's a quartz table flanked by a huge refrigerator on one side and a small but powerful DeLonghi coffee machine on the other. There is also a smart oven that identifies food and cooks it for you, as well as a sink faucet that turns on with one tap.
While most of the Skypod is painted in muted gray, there are special touches like accent wallsr the guest room and other parts of the house. Gold accents also liven up the space in some decors and fixtures.
Ultimately, the Skypod is the modern mansion of our dreams, but you have to watch it yourself to see why:
