The homeowners are particularly fond of furniture from late French designer Christian Liaigre, and it shows in their furniture choices for the living area. Liaigre’s iconic pieces mark the living zone with an elegant presence, and the designers have been respectful of its stunningly understated forms by keeping it as the core focus of the room.

The dining zone is draped in understated grandeur. A modern chandelier sets the stage for sumptuous soirées, and puts together a well-appointed look with a full dining set from Christian Liaigre. Having the well-equipped dry kitchen in close proximity allows the homeowners to entertain with ease, and the kitchenette features a stone wall backing and cabinets in dark veneer finishes.

The designers from Joey Khu ID have completely reworked this home’s floor plan to cater to the lifestyles of the family of six living here. This family hall on the second level has been turned into a waiting area reminiscent of a posh hotel lobby. The design team shares: “It’s intended as a transit area between the communal zones and private bedrooms; therefore the design conveys opulence with an approachable charm.”

No expense was spared in the master bathroom with the application of full marble slabs mounted as a double vanity counter. The team says: “For this setup of his-and-her sinks, recessed sinks were added for a more seamless touch and to allow the bold marble veining to take centrestage. This facilitates easier maintenance in the long run as well.”

Custom fixtures such as the bedframe and bay window settee adorn the master bedroom with elegant proportions. In sleek neutral tones, the pairing of the veneer surfaces with designer pieces emits a quiet sense of luxury – a common theme seen around the house.
