We often see her all glamorous in a chic black and white outfit, hair deliberately made with makeup done impeccably well. Her beautiful face matches her true heart and bubbly personality. I will never forget the first time I met Cat in 2005. She was so warm and sweet to me! Back then she was brand manager for Chopard watches and she picked me to be one of the models for their fashion show. Without me knowing it, she invited Hans (my husband) to be a guest model too with the intention of pairing us together! Her scheming didn’t go as smoothly as planned but just like the other successful things Cat has done, we did end up together!
Today Cat lives a more quiet life in contrast to her days as PR head for the super club Embassy. Being married to Carlo Antonio, the CFO of Century Properties, Cat has embraced being a wife and mother. She chose to study interior design and just finished her two-year course, as being in the fashion industry and doing promotions for a club was not an ideal job for her new status. Glowing now more than ever.. doing interior design, blogging and writing for the Philippine Daily Inquirer certainly brings out the best in Cat. “I believe that life is about growing and we should all strive to evolve into becoming a better version of ourselves in every way we can – whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually. I love to talk, share and hopefully inspire people.”
The home of the Antonio’s reflect Cat’s classy style with black and white as her favorite colors. An Artwork that sits in their living room that was created by her kids is a favorite. Among other statement pieces include a chair in striking red by Marcel Wanders. Though they’ve lived in this house for 3 years she claims it changes everyday, every detail is always lovingly created by Cat.. everything but the master’s bedroom which is Carlo’s design.
I had a wonderful time shooting Asher’s room. This two-year old sure knows how to charm ladies! Though he wasn’t in his usual dapper outfit, but rather in diapers he did know how to strike a conversation with me! Thank you for welcoming me into your home Cat! Wishing you all the best as you continue to inspire others. Visit Cat’s blog at www.catarambulo.com and see more of her latest in fashion, style and travel.
