The possibilities are endless when it comes to renovating and furnishing a new condominium apartment such as this. But the homeowners already had a vision in mind. “They were looking for a contemporary luxury theme,” says designer Jocelyn Shu of Metier Planner. “They requested for a timeless design so that they have the flexibility to play with soft furnishings.” The design concept also had to reflect their personalities.

The design team conceptualised a series of cove lights on the ceiling and walls in the living area. The multi-layered cove lights on the panelled ceiling especially, produce a dramatic effect. These panels are decked out in neutral hues of white and grey to reduce visual clutter.

In the foyer, mirror panels glam up an otherwise blank wall and create the impression of a spacious entryway. “They also establish a link to the half-height kitchen wall enclosed with glass,” explains Jocelyn. Further in, the standout ceiling feature merges with the marble-like panel as a focal point that separates the dining area from the living area. Contemporary furniture, such as the plush, wing-back like dining chairs lend an elegant and timeless character to the space.

Contemporary touches can be found in the bedrooms as well. The designers have created a simple ‘floating effect’ TV feature wall in the master bedroom. Doing without a console ensures sufficient space for the owners to navigate around the compact bedroom comfortably. Wires and power points are hidden within the feature wall for a streamlined aesthetic.

For the couple’s two children, the design team considered how to create a bedroom where the children can have their own beds with sufficient storage space to boot. The solution came in the form of staggered platforms that allow the beds to be placed side-by-side while accommodating hidden storage beneath.

“The owners are a down-to-earth couple who want a design that fits their lifestyle and habits, notwithstanding the limited space,” shares Jocelyn. Metier Planner’s strategic planning for space, storage and style has helped the owners achieve that and more.
