There are many ways to
 set the tone of a home’s spatial experience, and here, Asialand ID does so with custom features. Dramatic designs, drawn up in black, define the living room.
 While a backlit full-height display and storage unit lines one wall, an eye-catching geometric partition demarcates the area from the rest of the house. This design feature consists of open shelves and a large hexagon-shaped nook, which was conceptualised with the couple’s young child in mind.


Some might think that dark hues make a space appear small or, worse, gloomy. However, they can do well to enhance an interior, with the right materials and textures. In the kitchen, the designer used a leather-look laminate to give the area an upscale touch. To complement the dark hue, wood-look countertops and baskplash surfaces from Kompacplus were selected to match the beautiful slab of suar wood integrated into the kitchen island.


One of the highlights of 
this home is the walk-in wardrobe the couple shares, which is connected to
 the master bedroom. For consistency, the designer used the same leather-look laminate that’s found in the kitchen and living room. Fully customised to ensure that the couple’s storage needs are met, the wardrobe
 even makes the most of an awkward corner with open shelves for storing bags and often-used items.
