Now a monthly webzine, the revamped MyHome is the ultimate source for stylemakers, trendsetting interiors, and beautiful must-have home-furnishings.
For years, MyHome was the source of inspiration for homeowners in making their dream home a reality. Offering a collection of stylish spaces and curated aesthetics, it served as the ultimate sourcebook for interior decorators and homeowners in creating beautiful spaces. Now, relaunched as a monthly webzine under BluPrint, the new MyHome is dedicated to showcasing stunning spaces in interior design and serving as the guide to decorating and designing the special home that adds beauty to life. In collaboration with renowned industry experts who are invited as guest editors, each issue stays true to its main purpose of inspiring readers to design their dream space.
In collaboration with the leading creative direction of BluPrint’s Editor-in-Chief, Geewel Fuster, the May E-Cover steps inside the SmartAge tropical dream home of actresses and sisters Yassi and Issa Pressman. Putting emphasis on the use of outdoor spaces such as lanais, this month’s issue shows how these areas can be utilized for an active lifestyle with nature.
Oftentimes, outdoor areas are overlooked as places that can be used for decorating and entertaining guests. For the Pressman sisters who enjoy an active lifestyle and having visitors over, these outdoor areas have provided them with the recreational space they needed while being surrounded by nature. The embodiment of a healthy lifestyle, their residence now serves as their personal gym and fabulous resort, where outdoor features like lanais and bigger open spaces compliment the indoor perks of their modern home.
The Design Process
From conceptualization to execution, the Pressman sisters were highly involved throughout the design and construction process. In collaboration with licensed architects, Jason and Anne Abustan, they were able to make their vision for the house a reality, which included an impactful outdoor space. The open space will be a perfect area for social gatherings with family, relatives, friends, and even business dealings.
The designers have created a modern tropical feel for the recreational space of their client. Among Jason’s ideas was building a swimming pool with features such as a jacuzzi, lap pool, and lounge pool in order to give any visitor who comes in the house a resort feeling. For Anne, she selected a lush variety of tropical plants and trees to be planted to set the tone for the pavillon. The architects also opted for a soaring ceiling measuring almost five-meters high to utilize the residence’s two stories. To complement the tropical aesthetic of the outdoor space, a natural color palette inclusive of beige travertine, teak, and gray split face rock was selected to allow for a smooth transition into the main house.
A SmartAge Home
With Yassi’s investment on high-end technology, the residence is also a smart home, now equipped with SmartAge technology. Some features of the modern home included mood-lighting, a privacy setting care of Alexa, and a voice-activated bathtub area. In addition, it has an auto smoke glass enclosure system that diffuses when locked to allow the outside view to be obscured for total privacy. To top it off, a simple voice command will reverse the whole process and allow for the most relaxing TyloHelo spa from the comfort of one’s home.
With her new residence utilizing both outdoor spaces for recreational areas and SmartAge technology to allow a modern interior, Yassi Pressman proves that one can build a dream home without limitations.
