When the Tans acquired their humble, three-storey townhouse, it wasn’t the picturesque home young married couples wish to move into. It was gloomy and old—filled with dark wood and plain white walls. But that didn’t stop the Tan couple from creating a happy livable home they could call their own. After seeking the help of interior decorator Elle Uy, the couple was able to spruce up the space into a bright, dreamy townhouse that perfectly suited their tastes.

Colorful, light, and airy were elements of the vision that the twosome had for their home. Pale blue walls and stark white furniture eliminate any dreary atmosphere. Pops of color from the teal door and yellow sofa add a playfulness the couple wished for their space. Everything combined results in a sunny ambiance that opens up the space perfect for a comfortable home life for the couple.
