A Good Show

Many of us have been seduced by sophisticated scenes at condominium showrooms – muted tones, polished surfaces and well-appointed spaces that we dream of having in our own homes.

For the family living in this four-room premium HDB, the dream became a reality with the help of interior design firm The Interior Place. The company’s experience in designing condominium showrooms came in handy with this particular project.

To achieve the polished look that the clients wanted, the designers chose materials that a bit of shimmer and shine to the space. Once at the entrance, the dining area is framed by burnished mirror walls that serve to hide the bomb shelter entrance. In addition, the designers considered the personal needs and preferences of the family. For example, the homeowners like to enjoy a glass of wine every now and then, so she incorporated a small ledge in the kitchen and paired it with a hanging glass rack.

In addition, the study, done up in the style of a swish private office, features customised cabinetry in white with a slim desk attached to one of the lower niches. The desk can be slid to one side to accommodate a bed and convert the study into a guest room when needed. Two of the three bedrooms were combined to make up the master bedroom and its attached dressing-cum-music room. The sleeping area sees a simple but clever combination of a shelving system with the television console.
