Theme: Luxury & Contemporary
We’ve seen so many photos of beautiful homes on the internet and i believe all of us yearn to have such well-designed home. Yet, many of us had no idea where to kick start the interior design and renovation. Here is a little story of Lisa’s renovation journey.

The living room is where the family and the guests gather at. The importance of the interior design of the living room need not be further emphasized. To kick start the interior design, theming and the colour scheme are crucial. The owners yearned for a luxury, contemporary and classy themed home. The colour scheme of the home is in earth tone – mostly brown, grey and beige. Basic colours such as black and white are also used. Such colours symbolise elegance, security, warmth and have a calming effect. In addition, such colour schemes fit the theme flawlessly. Materials like marble and wood are used to produce an effect of extravagance.
The incorporation of marble into designs has always been a timeless classic since the olden days. Thus, you will never go wrong with marble.
The feature wall of the television is made of marble which gives a polished look for the entire home instantly and effortlessly. Apart from the chic design, the look is completed with an open shelf at the bottom which acts as a console for open display of TV appliances. Remarkably, with the feature wall, electrical wires of the TV are well hidden. We no longer have to tolerate the messiness these wires caused anymore.
An open concept kitchen is always a good idea for contemporary themed homes. As the kitchen and dining table are connected to the living room, matching materials would be ideal. Thus, the island of the kitchen and the feature wall of the dining area are covered with marble laminated finish. In addition, the use blue chairs at the dining area give a more vibrant and energetic look. Overall, the impeccable use of the colours and materials made the space appear more spacious and further highlighted the elegance of the home.
The overall look for the master bedroom is more minimalistic with a hint of elegance. A walk-in wardrobe gives an underlying luxurious feel and i believe many of us – especially ladies long for a space like this. Thus, as requested by the owners, 2 bedrooms were combined into one to achieve the walk-in wardrobe. An island is place in the middle of the walk-in wardrobe for storage of accessories and folded clothes.
The sleeping area is defined with a raised platform covered with vinyl flooring finish. The ceiling cove light is connected to the bed head which gives a more stylish vibe to the overall appearance.
It is pretty unusual to see a contemporary themed kids bedroom as most kids bedroom are designed in a more lively and colourful way. However, such design has an advantage in years to come when the kids mature. To add a more cheerful vibe, adorable and colourful paintings are used. There is a raised bed for a kid and the other sleep on a pull-out bed which saves space.
A study table is essential for every child. Brighter colours such as blue and yellow are used which make the study environment more conducive. On the right side of the table, there is an open shelf in the sunken-in area to maximize storage space. The black chalk wall on the right adds a fun vibe to the study area. Lights are installed right under the blue and yellow shelves so that table lamps are not needed which prevents the situation of having messy wires. Remarkably, the table size can fit at least 3-4 people at a go thus, the children can invite their project/study mates over.
