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.

Real Living went back to Vince’s unit after this 2005 feature! To see how his home looked like in 2008, check out: https://www.realliving.com.ph/homes/avant-garde-and-eclectic-interiors-in-a-renovated-home
