Design areas: Living and Dining Room, Wet and Dry Kitchen, Master Bedroom with Walk In Wardrobe, Dressing Room, Study and Utility Area | Project completed: 2019 | Renovation budget: SGD120,000 – SGD 130,000 – Designer: Arjan Nijen Twilhaar
Wanting to break with the modern and cookie cutter aesthetics of this new condo, an aesthetic overhaul brought Belgravia Townhouse glamour to this apartment with breath-taking views. In the lift lobby, wainscoting was added and the walls are hand painted with an abstract landscape – in line with Feng Shui requirements.
In the dining room, the ceiling was raised by shifting the ducted aircons, allowing a statement ceiling throughout the entire room. The walls were lined with wood panels, and by joining the mouldings a contemporary vibe was created which is further enhanced with the duck egg colour spray paint finish. The rest of the walls are finished in a venetian plaster, with its texture and sheen adds depth to the walls.
Large chandeliers were placed in the living and dining area, and the furniture is kept modern with a fun twist to upholstery choices to the custom-made side chairs. Touches of transitional accessories and geometric patterned day curtains add a contemporary vibe to the traditional architectural details.
The open kitchen cabinets were replaced with white shaker style carpentry and more storage was created by adding more cabinets. In the wet kitchen, new doors were placed on the existing carpentry and additional carpentry was added to create much needed storage.
In the master bedroom, the walk-in wardrobe was replaced with fret-work wardrobes – lined with mirrors. A geometric wallpaper lines the headboard wall and a textured wallpaper laid on the rest of the walls. A custom bed is mixed with store bought furniture. To create more wardrobe space, a bedroom was converted into a dressing room – with new wardrobes.
The remaining bedroom was converted into a study area. The area was enlarged by shifting some internal walls and re-arranging of aircons. A custom wing chair adds a pop of colour and creates a cosy nook for reading or enjoying the view.
