A contemporary family home influenced by feng shui

Conceived by Vivre Creative Design, the interiors are guided by the principles of feng shui, and the homeowners’ desire for closed and open storage to display their prized possessions.

Home Type: 3-bedroom condominium unit

Floor Area: 969sqft

Home to a couple and their school-going daughter, this brand new condo unit designed by Vivre Creative Design is anything but cookie-cutter. Uniformed light oak and grey laminated cabinetry dress the common spaces while addressing the functional needs of storage space.

Despite a constrained palette, thoughtfully crafted details enrich pockets of spaces within the apartment. The most prominent being the dining cum bar area. “The owners have a fair bit of liquor and requested for a dedicated space to showcase their collection, hence the vertical shelving inspired by restaurant interior,” say creative director Pen Teoh and interior designer Andrea Teoh, who share that more are kept in the tinted glass storage next to it.

Since the floor area is pretty modest, the design team proposed a medley of banquet seating and dining chairs to maximise space and diversify the arrangement. They even sneaked in hidden storage beneath the bench seat. Not to mention, the chairs can also be used for alfresco dining in the balcony, freeing up more floor space indoors.

Unbeknownst to others, the interior design was influenced by feng shui requirements. Say Pen and Andrea: “Pockets of display area were created throughout the apartment, enabling the owners to showcase their generous crystal collection,” as these stones are believed to attract good energy into the home.

Unlike the main living space, the private quarters sport a significantly darker colour palette. Yet, details were not spared. In the master bedroom, the bed sits on an elevated platform to accommodate additional storage below, in addition to a custom wardrobe and full-height cabinets that flank the TV.

The daughter’s bedroom, on the other hand, has storage drawers below the bed and a headboard that extends into a bench seat, which doubles as a nightstand. Despite the apartment’s tight footprint, Vivre Creative Design has managed to meet the family’s functional requirements and achieved a spacious outlook in the process.
