The design brief was that we simply wanted something different and not cookie-cutter. The homeowner also mentioned that they were receptive to anything and keen to try any fun ideas.

With its dark colour scheme and woodgrained furniture, the master bedroom is a peaceful sanctuary for the homeowners. Two different kinds of floor tiles were used to demarcate the micro zones in the space. At the same time, the designers created a bigger wardrobe for the homeowners by opening up one of the common rooms’ walls.

The open-concept kitchen is a result of tearing down a wall to make way for generously-sized engineered quartz-topped island that doubles up as a prep space and secondary dining area.

The adjacent master en suite took some inspiration from bathrooms found in sophisticated boutique hotels with its dark colour palette. It was a bold move to choose a dark theme for the bathroom but the designers explain, “The existing space was not bright to begin with so instead of choosing the usual bright coloured items, we had a crazy idea to enhance it with a darker scheme where the use of lighting can bring the mood and ambience together with other little design elements to create a space where the homeowners can shower and relax.”
