Kris Aquino and her sons Joshua and Bimby now live in a country-cottage home.
For an idea of the sort of living space the Queen of all Media inhabits, we browse through the pages of YES! Celebrity Home Special 2012 that feature the two units in One Roxas Triangle, an exclusive high-rise residential building in one of Makati’s most affluent areas, where she and her sons used to live.
They occupied a combination of two units: the 330-sqm unit registered in the name of her elder son Joshua is called Laguna as it faces Laguna de Bay; the 308-sqm unit in Bimby's name is called Forbes because it has a view of Forbes Park.
It was obvious she had her sons in mind when she had their rooms redesigned to suit their personalities.
Kris told YES!, "Papakita ko sa inyo 'yong dalawang master bedrooms sa mga anak ko kasi kanila, e. So parang in essence nakikitira lang po ako."

As flamboyant as they were eclectic, the home interiors were a fabulous mishmash of design trends: Victorian, Gothic, Art Deco, and Art Nouveau.
"This is really me. Gusto ko talaga ng makulay, happy, bright colors. Ayoko ng minimalist!” she had said in her interview with YES! magazine.

Also inside the capacious room were her exercise machines, "para inspirasyon na mag-exercise ako."

Apart from plush upholstery and custom-made furniture, the magazine also showcased Kris's dainty bedroom, an elegant mix and match of feminine colors that reveal another side of her glitzy persona.
