Enhancing the Italian Ambience of Your Crown Asia Home

The art of living does not just include the aesthetics that one’s eyes can see. Some homeowners also pay attention to other aspects that affect the ambience of their home. While landscaping, architecture, and interior design features all play important roles in enhancing the overall look and feel of one’s home and community, there are also other things to consider such as home scents and aroma and mood music.

From the Italian-inspired Crown Asia communities, with houses and lot for sale in Cavite and Laguna, the lush landscaping and welcome gate first greet both guests and homeowners. This entry statement helps transport the neighborhood to a place seemingly not in the Philippines, but to a quaint Italian countryside community. The tree-lined roads guide families on their way home, with manicured open spaces hosting a variety of greeneries that mimic the “Bel Paese”.

Enhancing the Italian Ambience of Your Crown Asia Home

The curb appeal of a Crown Asia home sets the next experience—hints of majestic and understated opulence with classic details. The rustic colors of the façade, the wall accents like shutters and lamps, and the concrete roof tiles all embody a timeless and unique charm. Of course, outstanding landscaping also heightens the beauty of the homes. Cypress and Pencil Pines, along with other pine trees, perfectly complement Crown Asia’s Italian abodes, as can be observed in Ponticelli in Daang Hari and in Valenza in Santa Rosa, Laguna.



As one enters a home, another adventure starts. Different personalities affect choices in terms of interior design. For Italian interiors, below are some details to consider according to Heather Evans of Nimvo:

Clean Colors

Italian interior designers tend to prefer a clean, contemporary color palette with white as its main focus. Walls in modern homes tend to be pure white, while bolder hues such as red will often be used as an accent. In more traditional properties, cream, beige, and ivory tend to dominate as the background color, while olive, terracotta, blue and lavender serve as complementary accents.

Natural Flooring

When it comes to flooring, Italians rarely go to the bother of fitting a carpet, preferring the natural beauty of marble, tile, or parquet over wall to wall coverings. That’s not to say they don’t appreciate the value of a good rug: large Persian rugs in colors that complement the color accents used elsewhere are often used to great effect, adding a warm coziness without detracting from the overall elegance of the theme.


Italians are known for their love of high-quality fabrics and are as keen to show off their taste on the textiles that adorn their homes as the ones that drape their bodies. Expect plenty of light organza, leather, and velvets.



Terracotta may not have originated in Italy, but the popularity of the material among its inhabitants means it may as well have. Terracotta first took hold in Tuscany, but it’s since been adopted in every region of the country. Such is the Italian love for all things terracotta, they’re not simply content to use it in pottery and tiles; look at any Italian style house and lot for sale that leans more toward the rustic than the contemporary and you’ll see how heavily it relies on terracotta shades on its walls, fabrics, and pretty much anything else that will benefit from its warm, earthen tones.

Mood Music


“I cannot imagine a genuinely happy home without music in it.”

Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Polish Composer

While in the choice of music, occasion must also be considered, one can never go wrong with signature Italian music on the playlist. From simple relaxation and to focus mood or to “just another day” in the house, below are some music and artists worth checking.

1.      Madrigals

Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi, a notable Italian composer, has compilations of Madrigals during Renaissance and Baroque. Consort of Musicke recorded versions of his beloved works here. For a local feel, the multi-awarded and internationally renowned Philippine Madrigal Singers delivers the style for a variety of genres.

2.      Operas

Perhaps one of the most successful opera composers, Giacomo Puccini is behind the famous arias like Nessun Dorma and O Mio Babbino Caro. The beloved Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti included many works of Puccini in his published recordings.

TRIVIA: Did you know that Crown Asia house models and building was named after an Italian opera composer? His name is Vincenzo Salvatore Francesco Bellini.

3.      Sacred Music


An influential figure in renaissance church music, Giovanni Pierliugi da Palestrina, has hundreds of music compositions under his name which includes masses, offertories, madrigals, and motets. His motet compilation, Motets for the Season of Christmas, can add a more spiritual feel during the holiday season.

4.      Traditional Folk

Perhaps the best that complements the rustic vibe of Crown Asia homes, the traditional folk music of Italy which usually features accordion, bagpipes, and flutes. Spotify has a playlist dedicated to this type of music.

5.      Film Soundtrack

In 1994, the film Il Postino: The Postman won the Academy Award for Best Music. The movie features Pablo Neruda’s exile in a small island in Italy and the film score surely captures the vibe. The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack also features poems by Pablo Neruda recited by some Hollywoods celebrities such as Andy Garcia, Samuel Jackson, Julia Roberts, Sting, Madonna, and Glenn Close.

Home Fragrance


Apart from the aroma of good food–be it pizza or pasta– coming from the home’s kitchen or dining space, home scents can instantly influence mood and disposition. As aromatherapy enthusiasts would confess, the use of scents, particularly essential oils can help ease tension and anxiety. In addition, it can also provide an “escape” to the outdoors. The Seazen group shares five scents that will transport you to Italy:

1.      Sardinia: Salt-Tinged Herb & Wood

2.      Venice: Saffron, Frankincense, Cardamom, and Myrrh

3.      Amalfi Coast: Citrus and Wild Orchids

4.      Capri: Iris, Jasmine, and Bay Leaves

5.      Siena: Grapes, Sandalwood, and Tonka Bean

AllHome has a collection of scents that include candles, reed diffusers, oil and waterbased fragrances, and linen sprays up for grabs.
