Kapampangan Chef, Mom InfluencerShy Herrera-Santos

Nurse-Turned-Chef. Traded scrubs for an apron. Married to Jc Santos, who is an actor in the Philippines and now a stay-at-home mom who loves to cook for my family. My husband and I are into minimalism. We recently turned our house into a minimalist's dream home.

Uncluttered, clean lines, simplicity, "less is better". These are some terms that immediately come to mind when thinking about minimalism. A minimalist design incorporates open spaces, lots of light, simple decorative accessories, and monochromatic color which is used as an accent. 


Shyleena Herrera-Santos' (@shyleenaherrera) list for a minimalist home interior is simple and straightforwardーcombining clean lines and natural materials with neutral tones of handmade objects.
