With A Little Help!
A few nudges in the right direction from interior designer Priya Naik were just what this apartment near Orchard needed.

So you’ve found the apartment or house you like, you’ve bought some pieces you love and it should all be good. But what do you do if it’s just not hanging together well? An interior designer or a home stylist can help – even if it’s just to get one or two rooms looking great.

We talk to Indonesian expat INTAN REYNIERS about living in Singapore and how she got her apartment at D’Grove Villas looking just the way she wants it – with a little help from Priya Naik at Interior Design Journey.

How long have you been in Singapore?

In total, we’ve been here for 10 years. This is our second stint and we’ve been back for three and a half years. We love it!

How long have you lived in this apartment and why did you choose it?

The apartment was the last one we viewed after a manic 18 viewings over a two-day period and we just fell in love with it. It’s an old build, which means it has space, and it’s in a great location.

What made you call on an interior designer?

I love muted tones; it shows in how I dress and how I decorate. I also love seeing pops of colour, but I’ve never felt brave enough to try them out. So, I figured a chat with an interior designer wouldn’t hurt. I wanted to keep to my own aesthetic choices, but I also needed a push to introduce more colour into our lives.
