TV personalities Christine Bersola-Babao and husband Julius Babao gave their fans a delightful peek into their famous bird-inspired house.

Christine made use of her YouTube page to treat her fans to the first part of a virtual tour of their house on Saturday, Nov. 3. Called “Casa Uccello” which is the Italian word for “birdhouse,” the couple’s home has captured the attention of fans and art lovers alike for its bird-inspired furniture and art pieces.

Christine proudly presented their front door handle made with brass electroplated in copper, by sculptor Daniel de la Cruz. The handle, which acts as a tree’s trunk, houses four birds representing the Babao family — Christine, Julius and their children, Anya and Nio.

A peak in their coffee bar-kitchen reveals dinnerware with, of course, bird designs. Christine divulged that she does not dare wash the decorative mugs they have, as they are quite expensive.

Even their dining table is inspired by birds. Babao said the table’s legs remind him of “Sesame Street” character Big Bird’s legs.
