Gretchen Barretto's home in Dasmariñas Village, Makati, which she shares with her partner, businessman Tonyboy Cojuangco, is straight out of a luxury magazine—but what's notable is how homey it is, a showcase of Gretchen being a hands-on homemaker.
No stranger to hosting parties and gatherings at home, Gretchen's kitchen, from the all-metal range oven, paired with marble countertops on each side, is a great reflection of her combined passion for cooking and things sophisticated.
Proof of Gretchen’s love for the kitchen? This corner housing shelves of cookbooks she has amassed through the years.
Hidden behind those wooden cabinets in the kitchen are their collection of vintage glassware, silverware, and ceramics, all meticulously taken care of, and used occasionally during house parties.
A typical dinner table setup, using their glassware, silverware, and ceramics, would look like this:

Beyond the kitchen, Gretchen’s shared snaps of her home also display their love for nature, evident with the dominant use of wood inside their dwelling, along with the abundance of plants and flower arrangements coming from Gretchen's friends, her husband, and her daughter Dominique Cojuangco.
Inside the house, table plants like these are a normal sight.
This particular flower arrangement was Dominique and Tonyboy's Valentines' gift to Gretchen, which served as a great decor piece in their living room.
Speaking of wood: An elegant home would not be complete with antique wood furniture, just like the furniture used at their living room, which Gretchen herself arranges:

Their all-wood staircase, which you rarely see in houses these days.
The all-wood staircase is so beautiful that it alone can already serve as the backdrop for countless photos.
The hallway leading to the master’s bedroom also makes use of wood elements, with a large, antique wooden cabinet being a focal piece.
In addition to wood, imported carpets grace Gretchen's home.
