Although actress, dancer, and singer Maja Salvador has lived on her own in a condo unit at The Fort since 2012, her modern contemporary house in Antipolo will always hold a special place in her heart. It's a memorable place for her because it was one of her first major investments.
One of her favorite spaces in this family home is the kitchen and dining area. She loves this particular corner because she has recently learned how to cook and has been enjoying it since.
Much like the other rooms in this Antipolo home, the open kitchen has a modern minimalist feel. The space is defined by the clean lines, neutral black-and-gray color scheme, and state-of-the-art fixtures and appliances.
The open kitchen layout allows Maja to entertain her guests while cooking dishes! With this layout, she never misses out on the kwentuhan of her loved ones.
Since the dining area is conveniently located next to the kitchen, Maja can bring the food out as soon as it is ready. It also makes it easier for her to sit down and enjoy the different things that she can cook, including Chili Crabs and Roasted Tomato and Garlic-Basil Pasta. Sounds yummy!
If there are only a few visitors, they can gather around this kitchen island and watch the homeowner prepare the meals. They can enjoy a glass or two of wine and share a plate of cheese and cold cuts while waiting for the food to be served.
The dining area is furnished with a dining table surrounded by eight white dining chairs. Dainty drop lights hanging from the ceiling illuminate the simple and inviting setup.
