‘Tis the Season for a new Home!

Tis the season for a new home

When the clock ticks at 12:00AM on September 1, Christmas officially starts in the Philippines. Lanterns shining so bright, Christmas songs wherever you go and happy people sharing gifts and smiles, these are true marks of Paskong Pinoy, the longest and the merriest celebration in the world.


Celebrating this happiest time of the year together is an important tradition for every Filipino family. This is when everyone finds time to come home and be with their loved ones, a once a year occasion no one misses amidst very busy schedules. Truly, home is where the genuine essence of Christmas prospers through sharing, giving, spreading love, hope and joy. During any other holidays, going to the beach, out-of-town trips, or fun adventures sound like a plan. On Christmas, there is no place like home to make merry with the kin, even more so if it is in a new house you can finally call your own. Here are three reasons why your family should aim for a new house this Christmas season from NorthPine Land, Inc. (NLI), one of the trusted real estate developers in the Philippines.

The more (discounts), the merrier

If you think that diving into home buying could be stressful before the festivities, think again. Experts suggest that Christmas can be an ideal time to buy a home. One, everybody would love to enjoy the coming holidays with family and friends and this includes real estate agents. They tend to be keener to market faster which means that they are more likely to offer you amazing discounts.

What’s more, the last two months of the year are considered to be slow season for the property sector. Some prospect buyers defer their purchase which means decided investors could pick up something more special.

2-in-1 celebration

Who wouldn’t love to spend happy holidays in a new home? Everyone will be extra excited to come home to see the realization of your long-term goal. If you are thinking of a grand house blessing, it is but the right time.  Besides the fact a 2-in-1 celebration would be more practical, it could also be the most memorable Christmas for the whole family.

Ending the year with a bang!

A new home is part of everyone’s #lifegoals. Owning one for the family before the year ends is a huge fulfillment and it will provide you a fresh start to face another year. One goal off your list means that you can now move on to achieving your other #lifegoals.

Now, you can say that Christmas is not just the season for giving and loving but also, for INVESTING. A new home, where you can create an exciting future with the family, is surely one of the best gifts you could ever have and share.

Are you ready to make it happen this time? Visit and marvel at Montana Views and Montana Strands, NLI communities in San Fernando City, Pampanga.  Dubbed as the Christmas Capital of the Philippines, you could expect nothing but the most exhilarating Christmas with your loved ones in your new home.

5 Home Decor Tips to Beat Rainy Day Blues

5 home decor tips

Wet roads, filthy floods, heavier traffic and gloomy atmosphere, the monsoon season can definitely dampen your spirit. If you are an outdoorsy person and a summer lover, the rain is truly a foe.

Ah, the comfort of home on wet seasons! This is a time when it could be your only escape from the inconveniences brought by the gloomy days, but sometimes with poorly-designed interiors, you can still end up feeling down even when you are indoors. To get the effect you are looking for, here are five home designing tips this wet season from NorthPine Land, Inc. (NLI), a developer known for fashioning top-of-the-line living spaces. Make sure to take the interior setup of NLI houses as your pegs.


Liven up a space by throwing in some happy colors. Opt for bright-colored cushion covers and throws or experiment with some bold prints. Swap your greys, blues and dark hues for pinks or bright shades of tangerine such as citrus. Check out how we executed this in the model units below.


Light plays a very important role in the interiors of a home and its décor as it gets rid of the gloomy atmosphere from dark spaces. You can experiment mood lights, scented candles and even chandeliers to make the house look and feel cozy and inviting. Place floor lamps in corners to eliminate shadows and offer a peripheral illumination that brightens up the entire room.


Who says that umbrella stands can’t make nice entrance statements? Use a sleek vase or a unique-looking basket at your front door as an umbrella stand and entrance decor at the same time. Similarly, use a non-boring coat hanger to wow your guests! Aesthetics with a purpose is always a smart idea.


Bring out all your vases and empty wine bottles. Fill them up with the colors of the season from local blooms like sunflowers, rain lilies or orchids. There is nothing like a house filled with lovely flowers!


Amidst cool monsoon breezes and rains, wind chimes give a sweet and pleasant sound. The soothing music will surely lift your spirits when you hear it.

Now, you can spend better days at home and just let the rains pour with a feel-good mood. It is as simple as these five simple tips. To better appreciate and understand how these interiors are done, see them in person at Montana Views and Montana Strands, NLI’s lifestyle communities in Pampanga. 

If you have other rainy season-inspired décor ideas in mind and some photos perhaps, share them in the comments below. Happy home-decorating!
