Rendered in a monochromatic palette, this home is embellished with neutral-coloured accents to provide layers of comfort and luxury.
Decorated by the SQFT interior design firm, this home presents a unique entryway leading past an elevated courtyard on the upper level – the planters on the exterior presented as a splash of green contained within a frame of glass and aluminium in the cavernous interior.
Descending from the staircase brings the eye into contact with an open layout largely saturated in white – with geometric embellishments in black or grey for monochromatic contrast, reflective metals for a luxurious sheen, and dark to light shades of wood to ground the space. While the dining space presents side chairs upholstered in various shades of leather to complement the monochromatic rendering of the décor and to mimic the organic shades of wood, the adjacent seating lounge presents those hues with reflective metals in addition to actual pieces of wood serving as end tables.
Reflecting the circular imprint of the simplistic coffee table, a chandelier inspired by Paul Loebach’s Halo presents four concentric rings of brushed brass suspended in mid air – the glistening sheen of reflective metal echoed in the decorative panels that flank the entertainment wall and stretch up to the full height of the ceiling.
A conventional staircase with mild-steel balustrades leads down the double-height volume and into an open layout containing the conjoined seating lounge and dining space alongside a kitchen alcove.
The décor of the culinary alcove is given a warmer character, with the grey tile floors taking on a blushing peach tone in the glow of recessed lighting sources and darkly-lacquered cabinet doors providing a departure from the monochromatic palette.
Just as the kitchen expresses tones beyond the monochromatic colour scheme for additional warmth, the private spaces follow suite – with the liberal saturation in personalising shades of blue, pink, or pale wood to render each bedroom unique.
In the master bedroom – where the monochromatic palette results in an apparent overabundance of space, the grey fabric headboard is flanked by vertical wooden slats and the room is subdivided by a low partition of pale wood that doubles as a working surface for a study or dressing table.
Building upon the same monochromatic palette – while bringing other colours into the mixes, the décors of the bedrooms are customised with alternate shades to illustrate the individual personalities of the occupants.
While most of the bedrooms feature walls painted in hues suited for tighter confines, such as white or a pale shade of grey, one of the bedrooms presents walls completely soaked in a pale shade of pink to denote a feminine bedspace.
SQFT believes that the best designer for one’s space is themselves – be it Commercial or Residential spaces. After all, it’s an extension of the unique self – experiences and aspiration. They also believe that with their wealth of industry experience, SQFT can help enhance and translate everyone’s unique vision – whatever it may be – into reality.
