Kapamilya hunk Aljur Abrenica is an embodiment of a real man’s man, that is why it is no wonder that his Quezon City townhouse has the vibes of such, from the classic NY brick wall to the wooden motif. Such vibes create a sturdy, yet cozy atmosphere for the actor-singer’s bachelor pad-turned-family home.
A TOUGH LOOK TO COOK
The brick wall complements the wooden counters and table that adds a manly, industrial touch to the kitchen, where Aljur prepares dishes for his wife Kylie Padilla and son Alas. The warm colors of the wall decorations and the air filter add an interesting touch to the already unique style of Aljur’s kitchen.
When StarStudio visited Alone/Together leading man Enrique Gil’s family beach house in Batangas, we cannot help but be in awe of how perfect the beach motif of every room goes with the location. The house is situated right next to a beach, one of the highlights of Anilao.
COOKING BY THE SEA
The kitchen’s overall look pays tribute to the sea: conveniently placed next to the dining area, this room is decorated by Enrique’s mom Bambi who loves to cook. From jelly fish lamps to batfish wall décor, Mommy Bambi really made sure that Quen and the rest of her family feel the beach vibe each time she prepares their favorite meals. The counters and refrigerators that scream a cheery yellow add a nice contrast to the white and brown colors of the cookery.
Keeping it simple is what Jesusa star Sylvia Sanchez would love to imply when guests of the Atayde family rest house in Nasugbu, Batangas would see their kitchen.
MODESTY AT ITS FINEST
The wooden counters and cabinets complement the white walls in its austere simplicity, evoking such a homey vibe. Sylvia, however, adds a bit of flair to her place of cooking by adding green cornices to the windows as she does with the living room. The bowls of fruit add more kitchen feels to the room.
Halik star Sam Milby has a kitchen that looks sleek and masculine, evidenced from his silver refrigerator and collection of wine situated from his interesting barrel rack and wooden counter. Sam loves to keep it fit too, so he’s into having fruits like bananas and pineapple on the side for healthy eating.
The actor-singer sure loves the color silver, as seen by his choice of refrigerator, microwave, and coffee machine. Interestingly, he has a nice arrangement of food supplies on two of his kitchen shelves which he could grab anytime when his stomach says so.
RUFA MAE QUINTO
A cook herself, sexy comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto loves to create magic with the pots and pans of her kitchen within her luxurious condominium in Makati.
A LIVELY CONTRAST
A lot is happening in the kitchen of Rufa Mae. The brown center table, white cabinets, red wall, gray refrigerator, and black kitchen counters conjure a beautiful contrast that greatly reflects the kind of food the Home Sweetie Home actress creates for her and the people of her home.
When ABS-CBN’s own Chinita Princess Kim Chiu welcomed StarStudio in her Quezon City home a few years back, she did nothing but put everyone in awe when she gave a tour of her house, and one thing that stood out was the kitchen.
A PASTEL-WOODEN COMBO
Kim makes the combination of pastel and wooden color work, and you can see that when you enter her kitchen. The smooth, creamy white and pink colors pave the way for the diverse wooden colors to dominate the room, yet they stood out in their own areas too.
Kim’s on-and-off-screen beau Xian Lim also has a kitchen that stands out! When StarStudio visited his Antipolo mansion last August 2014, it was all breezy and bright, and the kitchen will surely amaze you.
HOT AND COLD
You would think at first glance that Xian’s kitchen would be breezy and minimalist in nature because of its dominant white colors, but once you enter and see the whole picture, the whiteness would be complemented by the cabinets that display a fiery red. Now that’s fresh!
StarStudio started the year 2017 right when they ventured into the Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual’s Makati condominium. It was the textbook definition of a man cave, with its industrial aesthetic, but wait until you see the kitchen!

Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid likes her kitchen to be spacious, yet maintain its sleek, well-lit appeal.
A NICE ARRANGEMENT

Comedienne Pokwang gave a glimpse of her Antipolo haven through StarStudio last August 2017. She said her move to the home was dedicated to her mother Gloria, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.
A BONDING MOMENT
In the interview with Mamang, as she is fondly called in showbiz, the kitchen is where she bonds with her eldest daughter Mae the most. The natural light illuminates the predominantly minimalist kitchen. Yet, the set of kitchen items like the cups, the bowl of fruits, and the wine racks give the kitchen some color.
