When lifestyle influencer and marketing executive Joycelyn Thiang @joycelynthiang wants to do an unboxing video or snap a series of outfits to post, she can choose to do so from one of the many appealing corners in her BTO flat.
The four-room unit that she shares with husband Weehow, an engineer, has the space, and striking backdrops that look great on the lens. But while this home has been designed for this very activity, it’s also home and as such has all the homey trappings the busy couple could ask for.
“Their common interest would actually be lazing around at home after work, and to be away from all the noise,” share the designers from Ascend Design, whom the couple had engaged for this project.
Included in the couple’s briefing notes was for a clean and simple home, but with detailing to elevate the look. It also had to be functional and hassle free.
“We decided not to make any structural changes to the floorplan as our clients will be looking to upgrade their home in the next few years. Instead, we extended the kitchen counter into the living area in such a way that it serves as an ‘island’ of sorts. The edge was also curved so it wouldn’t jut out awkwardly,” say the designers.
The use of curves is a recurring theme. It can also be found on the feature arc in the living area, and is Joycelyn’s go-to ootd backdrop.
Fluted surfaces and warm woody shades bring beautiful texture to the otherwise pristine and simple interior. Other striking details include the custom golden arc shower screen in the master bathroom, which had to be built overseas and shipped over. The matching mirror brings in yet more curves.
