House Tour: Open-plan design and statement furniture in this semi-detached house

Despite having no formal interior design background, the owner, the founder and executive director of a skincare firm, did not hesitate to undertake the design process herself. Armed with sketches and specific instructions of what she had in mind, she enlisted a contractor friend to execute her ideas on her 6,000sqf semi-detached house on Leith Road. 

Crisp white walls exude a gallery-type feel and are a fitting backdrop to designer pieces such as the Helena sofa and the Wonders coffee table by Nathan Yong.
