Creative Director for top magazines like Preview, Town & Country, and Elle Decoration Philippines, Vince Uy, and stylist to the stars Liz Uy are not only siblings—they’re also style aficionados. Both have a keen sense of aesthetic – as exemplified in their chosen careers. It’s easy to assume that their homes would be as well-designed and pleasing to the eyes as seen in their work—whether it’s an actor dressed in the finest silhouette or an avant-garde shoot.

This assumption holds true. For his unit, Vince chose an Asian, Zen-inspired look while Liz chose a modern style with only two colors (one of them white!) for hers. Vince’s home is full of wood in dark finishes, while Liz’s white walls are a stark contrast against lime green accent pieces. His home is expansive and streamlined, hers is spacious and curvy. While Vince’s unit highlights a laid-back and cool vibe, Liz’s space exudes a fun and refreshing feel. In both homes, accents play key roles—whether it’s in the form of canvas paintings, Asian sculptures, or colorful knickknacks.

Although quite different, the units have a striking similarity: they are designed with effortless taste that convey the sibling’s personality to a T. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the siblings’ old homes.
