The spacious three-story home set among luscious hills and greenery is refined with rich elements of brown and beige that blends harmoniously with wall trimmings. Homing into contemporary, simple and spacious designs, furnishing is handpicked from various shops and put together to enrich the look and feel of the home.
Beatrice passion for Victorian design is evident with two large mirrors in the living area. The ambience of the room is elevated further with rare collectibles neatly arranged on a wooden wall rack. Wallpapers – something that Beatrice had admired since her younger days is used to create a centre piece in each room.
Apart from the living room, the master bedroom is defined with wallpapers in a black and gold hue, while the children’s room uses a subtle tone of mixed floral prints suitable for an adolescent and sea blue denoting robust energy yet calmness in spirit for the younger gentlemen of the home. Though decoration is minimal due to time constrain and shifting, lovely angels in painted molded clay can be seen along the stairway and the living room. The home certainly demonstrates Beatrice free spirit, elegant and demureness.
