Vintage Elegance: The Classical Filipino Interior

Every country has its notable character in terms of architectural principle or structuralism,  and each genre becomes the epitome of it’s kind. I appreciate the vintage Filipino design in exact same ideology. I went to this hotel named Legend Villas that really has its old world charm and the cozy ambiance felt like taking me back to the good old years of traditional Filipino home. So I am going to share to you the Legend Villas, just situated in the heart of Mandaluyomg city.

Before we go inside, this is the outside 🙂

You can see some Chinese inspired elements too but the entirety of wood simply boosts the vintage Filipino construction.

I’m excited to see more about these stuff 🙂
