One of my simple joys in life, especially during the pandemic, is to watch home makeovers on YouTube. Whether or not I decide to actually declutter my space, there's something so therapeutic about seeing someone else's home ~*transform*~. Andi Eigenmann went into each room of her Manila home and cleaned everything! Kathryn Bernardo asked Issa Reyes of Neat Obsessions to organize her kitchen so there's a ~flow~ to how things are arranged.
And now, Laureen Uy has asked her cousin, interior decorator Elle Uy, for help in making it "neater" and giving the space a more "modern" look. Her office used to have a lot of blacks, golds, and blues; now, she wants pops of color.
One of Laureen's requests was an area for her papers, magazines, and such 'cause feeling niya everything was out in the open before.
What we love most about the office tour is the wall right behind Laureen's desk where fan illustrations are displayed.
To match the big red locker—you know the one—Laureen also asked Elle to incorporate more red pieces in the room. Our favorite pop of red is this ceramic dish from Karma Atelier.
Also on her desk is a box of letters she received from friends during quarantine:
ICYDK, Laureen is a big fan of personalized letters. She even has a stationery area!
From her desk, Laureen will also have a perfect view of her schedule board (where her calendar used to be). That wall used to be plain blue but now we see it's definitely more colorful:
And for Happy Hour, a bar cart...'cause why not?
