The homeowner Kuan Eng and his interior designer from Studio JP discussed the flooring, laminates, ways to conceal wires and piping as well as hacking walls, so the former can have a “blank canvas” for his furnishings. "My design background has helped me to understand colours, textures and lines, and choose furniture and art pieces that sit right in the context of the room," he says.
As avid art collectors, the owners have already amassed an impressive collection. There are contemporary works by British and German artists, as well as local art pieces and those from Myanmar – all ready to be prominently showcased in the living room and bedrooms
This apartment in New York City is super chic and cosy! The designers layered the grey-hued based with colourful furniture and soft furnishing, creating a sophisticated but lived-in look. Artworks fills the home too, and add character to the space.
Gallerist Lim Ju Lynn prides herself on being different from her counterparts. "I have the ability to see a piece of art and know if it would fit into a home," she says. By that she means she knows which pieces are more appropriate for museums and galleries, and which would fit in a residence.
Letting the design of the home speak for her personality, the homeowner filled the space with reproductions of pictures she loves, like this graphic of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The "graffiti" on the wall was pasted on.
