Eddy Kuswandi from EJ Werkshop Interiors made a bold choice for his client’s home — a five-room condominium on Ridgewood Close. Instead of an ordinary timber backdrop to the apartment’s spacious living room, he opted for wainscotted walls — a classical design element that certainly looks unusual in this contemporary, resort-inspired home. Warm tones of brown and yellow were used to create a cosy atmosphere in this spacious living room.
The already spacious flat received a visual upsize when the homeowner decided to knock down the walls that separated the dining, kitchen, and living rooms. With almost-full length windows (and a spectacular view to boot!), the open space evokes a villa-esque airiness. For a simple yet elegant look, linen laminates were applied to the Blum kitchen system. “We chose wood features to imbue warmth, stone finishes for texture, and artificial greenery for easy maintenance,” says interior designer Eddy Kuswandi.
To set a warm tone throughout the space, wood was the main material used for built-ins, such as this display shelf as well as master bedroom’s walk-in wardrobe.
A mini-golf area in the foyer creates a fun entrance to the home.
The homeowner chose neutral colours, such as cream and brown, for a restful bedroom.
The walk-in wardrobe previously featured sliding mirror doors, but after consulting a fengshui master, the family opted for a wooden finish instead.
To create an open atmosphere, yet maintain privacy, half the bathroom wall was replaced with a glass window.
The renovation cost $150,000.
