The homeowners of this two-storey three-bedroom condo unit first approached architect William Ng from Studio Wills + Architects with a myriad of ideas for their duplex gathered from Pinterest. Their design ideas included the use of prints and patterns, subway and hexagonal tiles, coloured walls and wired glass.

Inspiration provided, they left the design up to William, who ensured all these elements were incorporated into the design of the home. 

The kitchen island is the couple’s favourite part of the home as it doubles as a dining and work space, taking advantage of the natural sunlight streaming into the living room. Yellow side table from Foundry. 

The dark blue shade of the kitchen area complements the warm tones of the living room, which was left in its original state. 

Many brass fixtures in the home, such as this bedside reading lamp, were hand-carried back from the US by the husband. 

Industrial-style elements such as the concrete screed floor and wired glass sliding doors for the wardrobe add character to the master bedroom. 

Working with a renovation budget of $200,000 (including fixtures), “the design came together far better than expected; it’s all the little touches that work together to make this nest feel like home,” affirms the wife.
