The homewners had a thing for oriental detailing. But in order not to mark their five-room HDB flat with an archaic style, William Chan of Spacedge Designs put a refreshing spin on it. 

A modern interpretation of the Chinese lattice serves as the anchoring feature for this home. It's most prominently used in the refurbished kitchen, which now has sliding doors instead of solid walls to zone the space.

The lattice panelling is then carried on to the open living area. The dark oak timber around the panel leads to the television feature wall and links up the living and dining rooms effortlessly. This feature was also able to pull together both spaces as its darker tone contrasts with the light, beigey tones of the rest of the area.

The elongated custom-made fish tank that's set into the wall also further emphasises the dining area's rectangular proportions, giving the illusion of a space that's more stretched out.

Every corner of this apartment is utilised to the max, including this little nook that can fit a study table nicely. The use of a glass panel here also allows more natural light to flow in from the windows.

Consistency is key when it comes to pulling together a striking decor theme, and William does that cleverly by incorporating a variation of the lattice door in this bedroom. Lighter wood is used in this tighter space so as to keep it from appearing too overbearing.
