Love is expressed through a myriad of ways, asserted through countless declarations, and communicated through various means. There are as many ways to show one’s love as there are people who experience and convey it. In Amore at Portofino.

Brittany Corporation has opened the doors of its latest model home to explore new ways of expressing the ultimate emotion through design and interior decoration.

A member of the country’s largest home builder, Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc., Brittany introduced a twist in the unveiling of Montano, the latest model home of Amore.

Brittany recently held an event dubbed as “Top Design” to open the minds of residents to the many possibilities that the Italian-inspired property can offer.

At the event, the living spaces of this beautifully-crafted two-level home were assigned to various design specialists – creating a series of showcases of interior design and supplies.

Montano has a floor area of 176 sqm. It boasts of three bedrooms, two-and-a-half toilet and baths and a two-car garage. Upon entering, attention is immediately drawn to the high ceilings which give the house a sense of grandeur without taking away the feeling of coziness that the compact space evokes.

Unlike the previous Amore model homes, Montano’s master bedroom is located at the ground level, just below the stairs with its beautifully-crafted black iron railings. The dining room is at the left side from the main entrance and opens up to the spacious kitchen, behind which the maid’s quarters is located.

On the second level is a spacious seating area with sliding doors that open up to the balcony. Two other bedrooms are on the second floor with a toilet and bath that the occupants can share.

Creative expressions Exclusively for “Top Design,” paintings by William Yu were exhibited at the master bedroom. Providing unique design concepts for the different rooms of Montano were Bohemian Nation with their interior designer Joby Belmonte, Delfino’s, Casa Del Ross’ owner Jo F. Bernabe, Bocar Faux Finishes (specialty finishes), Scand Wood (outdoor deck furniture), Tower Masonry (exterior stone cladding), Elba (kitchen appliances), and Atlantis Solar (solar air conditioner).

Present during the event were Brittany COO Mil Santelices, head for Planning Arch. Hendrick Samson, head for Admin and QSM Engr. Miong Sabater, Genalyn Bocar of Bocar Faux Finishes, Nenette Gonzales of Bohemian Nation, the Brittany Sales Network, staff and other guests.

“Walking into a completely interior-designed model home can sometimes be overwhelming for a homeowner. Because everything is so finished, they sometimes find it difficult to see how a space can be personalized to incorporate their own styles. On the other hand, a completely empty home can be equally daunting because you feel like you have no idea where to begin conceptualizing your space,” Santelices said.
