Bringing elegance to an odd-shaped apartment

Designer Karen Bohn from The Orange Cube used the odd-shaped layout of this 3-bedroom apartment to her advantage, incorporating unique design elements that lend to the overall elegant ambience of the space.

Home Type: 3-bedroom condominium

Floor Area: 1,300 sqft

An atmosphere of elegance permeates this open-concept living space through The Orange Cube designer’s clever use of materials and colours. Made of four layers of material, namely black laminate, grey laminate, white laminate and mirrors, the TV feature wall is undoubtedly the focal point in this space. Not only does it house the TV and a cantilevered console, it also subtly demarcates the living area from the dining area and kitchen.

The boundary walls in the kitchen were removed so that Karen could open up the space to create an open-concept kitchen and a bar counter. The combination of grey cabinets, white Caesarstone countertops and a black-coloured glass backsplash complements the living-dining area’s colour scheme.


One of the bedrooms has been converted into a walk-in wardrobe for the couple. A mix of open and closed storage solutions was designed to house different kinds of clothing and bags. A chest of drawers constructed with a glass top makes a perfect display case for the couple’s jewellery and watches.


Karen created a semi open-plan bathroom in the master bedroom. She incorporated glossy tiles with a travertine marble appearance on the walls for a touch of luxury, and balanced the look with grey homogeneous floor tiles and clear glass doors for a touch of simplicity and elegance.
