The homeowner, a well-travelled bachelor, favours the tranquil vibe of luxury hotel rooms. To achieve the same feel in his home, designer Joey Khu introduced a modern resort style that blended perfectly with the homeowner’s love for an Oriental design aesthetic.
Referencing the work of French architect and furniture designer, Christian Liaigre, Joey Khu furnished the home with pieces that were simple in form, yet aesthetically sophisticated and elegant.
The dining room has a strong Asian flair, thanks to the collection of artifacts curated by the homeowner himself. The Shoji style wooden screens by the balcony, a traditional element in Japanese architecture, provides privacy without losing the view.
Joey gave the master bedroom a crisp, clean look dressed in monochromatic black and white. Originally a light shade of oak, the floor was dark-stained to allow the rest of the furniture to stand out.
