Decorator and vlogger Elle Uy calls her humble abode "the tall tiny house." That's because it was built on a lot that's around 27sqm, and the homeowner maximized it by building it vertically, resulting in a gorgeous three-storey home.

Because of the quarantine, Elle decided to refresh their loft area and turn it into a multi-purpose room that serve as a home office, lounge, and after the pandemic, a guest bedroom. On her vlog documenting the makeover, she shared that she repainted the walls from green to white with peach accents to give the room a lighter feel. And since it will be her new creative space, she made it extra colorful with indoor plants and decor pieces in blue, green, and gold.

To save space, Elle used a foldable table as her office desk. Her work chair is a secondhand piece that she had upholstered, which is a great tip if you want to save cash on pricey furniture. Instead of a regular entryway, she installed a sliding door for the room, which can open up it up completely to let light in or close it for a little more privacy.

Meanwhile, the other side of the loft has two closets that can display more plants and provide extra storage. She also repainted a wooden dresser to match the greens in the room and fill up the empty space between the closets.
