Monotone Magnificence
Muted tones are definitely having a big moment in this petite family home, where the designer has transformed these anti-colours to a look of quiet and timeless elegance.

Liking what they saw in designer Joey Khu’s understated designs, the homeowners of this brand new condominium unit specified for a similar aesthetic for their home. “They preferred timeless over trendy and wanted an enduring style that could grow with their family,” reveals Joey. That culminated in a look which engaged darker colours and clean-lined design elements – all signature style touches of the veteran designer.

Streamlined strokes of opulence fill the combined living and dining zones. While most of the walls are lined with a generous capacity of custom carpentry, this does not diminish the shared confines of the space. “Most of the newer condominium units do not come with a storeroom, and this place is no exception,” says Joey. “Therefore, there was a real need to carve out sufficient storage space in the communal areas, and the best solution was to utilise full-height cabinetry to maximise the wall space.” He melds form and function effortlessly together by using a muted but sleek-looking palette of laminate finishes which adorns the custom carpentry with modern finesse.
