How Pauleen Luna's Home Style Has Changed Since Getting MarriedThe houses have striking similarities, from the chosen style to the look and feel of the areas
Sharing a home with your family is different from having your own place with your husband or wife. While you can call both properties yours, nothing compares to building your own home with your significant other. Take it from actress and TV host Pauleen Luna, whose homes have been featured on Realliving.com.ph: the clean and streamlined family home she shared with her dad Eugenio, mom Chat, brother Miguel, and their furry friends in 2015, and in 2018, the spacious haven she shares with husband Vic Sotto and baby Talitha.
Both homes showcase a take on the modern style, with tropical touches seen on the décor and accessories. But how has Pauleen’s take on interiors changed over the years? One big difference would be her involvement on the completion of the homes. She was more involved in the construction of her own home that she visited Wilcon Depot to personally check and pick the materials to be used. Let’s revisit the two homes below and note the differences:ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The multi-storey properties have captivating facades that will make passersby stop and stare.

The family home in Quezon City has a clean and modern look, while Pauleen’s current home in Laguna amped up the look by highlighting the use of glass.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Vic and Pauleen’s house doesn’t have a gate as well and from the look of the exterior, one will have an idea on the role plants play in completing the space.
The Luna family home has an open and airy living area that’s ideal for welcoming guests.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Just a few steps from the foyer, it’s furnished with dark gray seating pieces, modern accessories, and décor in earth tones. Mommy Chat opted to have an open layout to add to the airy feel.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Meanwhile, in the Luna-Sotto home, guests will surely admire the high ceiling that makes the home look and feel bigger. Walls and columns separate the living area from the rest of the house, giving the owners enough privacy when entertaining guests. Though it looks a bit confined, it’s easy to feel relaxed—thanks to the inviting chocolate-colored couch.

While the dining area in the family home is spacious enough to accommodate the family and a few guests, it’s safe to say the Sotto dining area is furnished with the big clan in mind. Since Vic and Pauleen host get-togethers and weekend gatherings, it’s a must to have a big room where their family and friends can instantly feel at home.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Both cooking areas have dining nooks and spots where one can enjoy watching TV, too.

The well-equipped yet compact Luna cooking area features a kitchen island, spacious countertops, and an airy ambiance—thanks to the glass doors and windows near the area.
We can assume that allotting time for quick breaks, quiet time, and relaxation ranks high in Pauleen’s musts in a home.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Both properties have exceptional outdoor areas that can rival a topnotch resort. The swimming pool in the family home is found on the same level as the dining and living rooms.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Meanwhile, Vic and Pauleen enjoy the perks of having a veranda, a lanai, and a swimming pool. What we love best in the couple’s home is the serene view it offers—you can simply sit outside, admire the view of the gold course in the subdivision, or relish the benefits of having a garden.
