A primer in case you’ve been living under a rock, blogger Laureen Uy is one-third of the fashionable Uy siblings—her older sister Liz is a fashion stylist and an international digital curator, while Vince takes care of creative direction for Summit Media titles, most notably fashion magazine Preview. Her siblings’ career paths make it less surprising for the youngest Uy to pursue a similar track. Having made a mark for herself in the local blogosphere with her experimental take on dressing up, documented on her blog, Break My Style, one would expect that her dwelling would take after her OOTD sensibilities—which it does.

The self-proclaimed maximalist continues her penchant for prints and colors when she took over Vince’s three-bedroom unit. She decided to take down the walls and convert it into a one-bedroom dwelling, with the second and third bedrooms as walk-in closets for personal belongings and work, respectively. The renovation was completed after a year and a half—and the results were true to her “break my style” philosophy.

One could say that the renovation project is a family affair, with Laureen not having to worry about her furniture, thanks to her parents and siblings. Meanwhile, her cousin, interior decorator Elle Uy Aguell helped put everything together. The Uys’ pre-loved pieces have found their new home in the fashionista’s unit, leaving Laureen to take care of purchasing fewer furniture pieces. This did not pose a problem at all—even with their distinct tastes, the Uys share a love for tasteful inspirations, beautiful pieces, and fabulous designs.
