Cream to bronze-colored pillows and sofas, abaca fiber accents, and traditional Filipino decor are some of the things you can use.

Religious Décor

Of the many festivals in the Philippines, most of them are related to a religious image like the Santo Niño and the Black Nazarene.

Choose your color palette between earthy and woody tones to different shades of red such as rose and deep red for a quintessentially Spanish appeal.
