Polished furnishings and modern design sensibilities create a laid-back environment for this duo to unwind.
After any overseas trip for work or play, we can all agree that the best part about returning home is being back in the comforts of our own abode, where everything we need is within reach and we are surrounded by familiarity.
That was the driving factor behind the renovation of this 1,300sq ft three-bedroom condo located in Paya Lebar, home to a mother and daughter. As the daughter is currently studying overseas, returning only for the summer and winter holidays, the apartment would be a home away from home, so the pair wanted their space to feel especially welcoming and comforting.
Appointing interior designer KC and project manager Risan Sun from Richfield Integrated, they also shared that they wanted the flat to incorporate elements of nature which they so loved, as well as for their unit to look bright and modern.
The designers brought the outdoors into the home by injecting hues of green throughout the dwelling, particularly in the kitchen and master bedroom where minty shades from Nippon Paint were selected for the majority of built-in fixtures. Pale, white oak laminates on the walls further accentuate the nature theme, mounted alongside tinted and clear mirror panels to evoke a spacious, airy and modern living space.
To complement the marble-effect flooring, the media wall in the living room was customised with Lamitak’s Bianco Marble Uassiq laminates, adding a visually arresting and organic element to the abode.
While not much cooking goes on in this household, the kitchen is a highly functional space with a U-shaped layout offering plenty of countertop space for meal preparation and ample base and upper cabinetry to keep the utilitarian zone tidy. The laundry area that was originally located within the kitchen was moved outside to the patio, freeing up more space in the cooking zone to facilitate better spatial flow.
Structural modifications for the new property were kept to a minimum, with only two smaller bedrooms merged to create an expanded private sanctuary for the daughter. Now, the new bedroom incorporates a wardrobe and a study area. While most of the surfaces here were clad with Admira’s Carrara Beige marble-effect laminates, the wall behind the bedside table was fitted with fluted slate laminates to break up the monotony.
Similarly outfitted with generous storage like the rest of the house, the room boasts newly installed cabinets alongside the room’s window and storage beneath the bed, which offer the daughter plenty of options for stashing belongings away, resulting in a restful and clutter-free environment perfect for rest and relaxation.
With its sleek aesthetics, swoon-worthy natural light and practical design, this home’s refreshed interiors now provides its occupants with everything they could want for comfort and enjoying their time together.
