Not sparing any expense for their family home, the homeowners wanted their home to exude a sense of luxury as well as be entertaining-ready. With the renovation of their semi-detached house helmed by Director Eric Wong from Lux Design, he focused on the spatial planning and created an upscale yet harmonious style that befits the family of four. This is well reflected in the spacious living area where he employed a modern material ensemble for the TV console and feature wall. High-gloss black surfaces and pristine white accents dominate this space.
An open layout imbued with sophisticated finishes ensues in the connecting communal zones. To accede to the homeowners’ request of having circular motifs in the living space, Eric incorporated that as a design detail for the false ceiling. These ring-shaped accents are paired with cove lighting to flood the elongated space with a warm yet stylised modern touch.
By connecting the dry kitchen to the living-dining zone with an open floor plan, this cohesive flow of space fulfils the homeowners’ monthly entertaining needs. An island counter clad in quartz and finished with distinctive textures and bevelled edges stands gloriously in the dry kitchen, and further cements the modern luxury design theme. It encourages interaction during social gatherings yet functionally performs as intended.
Upstairs reveals the private quarters where the homeowners take respite. The master bedroom is luxurious in every sense of the word with a large, boutique style walk-in wardrobe. While the choice of timber flooring creates a warm and unified style for the connecting spaces, Eric implemented a sliding door with glass etched panels in between both areas. This flexible segregation allows the homeowners to detach from any visual distractions and to use both spaces efficiently.
Decked by different series of tiles which imbue the dry and wet zones in a harmonious order, the master en suite bathroom presents an inviting resort style. The shower stall stands out with wall tiles of rugged textures and flooring that sports wood-look tiles. These nature-inspired textures are then balanced by black wall tiles as a neutral measure.
Facing an unblocked view of the quiet neighbourhood, the master junior suite at the third level belongs to the homeowners’ son and his wife. It projects a restful vibe with an abundance of light and air that stream in from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The soothing colour palette of warm neutrals adds to the calming ambience. An overhead feature which sees the integration of the ceiling with the wall creates a cosy cocoon and a centralised position for the TV console.
On the attic level where the guest room resides, this bedroom features skylights and full-height windows They are complemented with roller blinds that are powered by rotary engines for ease of operation. The automated window coverings allow occupants to easily adjust the amount of light that enters the bedroom.
Accessible only via the guest room, the weather-proofed entertainment deck becomes a private lounge area with unbeatable views of the neighbourhood. It provides a full suite of entertainment solutions with a built-in bar counter and a circular patio seating upholstered in a cheery red colour. Incidentally, the latter echoes the ceiling design feature in the living space downstairs.
Luxury can be expected in the en suite guest bathroom as well with the application of double sinks and luxury stone textures. These marble-effect wall tiles imbue the space with a modern sense of sophistication. But the highlight has got to be the attached balcony – accessible via sliding glass doors – that blurs the boundaries between indoors and outdoors.
