6 Hip Pinoy Celebrity Bachelor Pads
We’ve done our share of sprawling family houses and condo units, but what about bachelor pads? These Pinoy single-guy celebrities’ private homes can teach us a thing or two about functional design and modern style.
James Yap: Sleek and edgy
The basketball superstar, with the help of interior designer Kim Policarpio, worked on this “modern, contemporary classic” home that is decked out in sleek, minimalist furniture in leather and steel, designer lights, and a color palette of black, brown, and gray.
Coco Martin: Sophisticated nightspot
Who wouldn’t want to hang out in the Ang Probinsyano star’s home bar? The room itself can rival any high-end nightspot in the metro with its leather bar and occasional chairs, cowhide rug, moody lighting, and its generous, sectional club sofa.
Derek Ramsay: Cool glass house
Leave it to Derek to think of an out-of-the-box house design for his Palawan weekend home. The all-glass house offers full view of the beach, and a peek into the splendid interiors, as well. “We could have built a concrete house, but why? You have that in Manila, and you’re trying to get away from the concrete jungle,” the actor says.
Empoy Marquez: Simple and comforting
The down-to-earth funnyman has a modest but cozy home to match. His Bulacan home’s living room is furnished with a generously sized, modern sectional sofa, blue drapes, and an industrial-style lamp.
Ruru Madrid: Earthy Antipolo retreat
Antipolo has always been a nearby but relaxing getaway spot for Manila dwellers, and Kapuso actor Ruru Madrid isn’t an exception. The three-storey home exudes a contemporary, log cabin feel, and has 11 rooms to accommodate the Madrid family’s many reunions.
Jake Cuenca: Classic bachelor pad
The Kapamilya kontrabida of The Blood Sisters lived in this high-rise condominium in Mandaluyong City. It had all the trappings of the classic bachelor pad: modern furniture in leather, steel, and glass, an entertainment area, and a color palette of black, white, and gray.
