Space Condominium

Location Paya Lebar

Reno period Eight weeks

Home to Two adults

Budget $130,000

After any overseas trip for work or play, we can all agree that the best part about returning home is being back in the comforts of our own abode, where everything we need is within reach and we are surrounded by familiarity.

That was the driving factor behind the renovation of this 1,300sq ft three-bedroom condo located in Paya Lebar, a home to a mother and daughter. As the daughter is currently studying overseas, returning only for summer and winter holidays, the apartment would be a home away from home, so the pair wanted their space to feel especially welcoming and comforting. Appointing interior designer KC and project manager Risan Sun from Richfield Integrated, they also shared that they wanted the flat to incorporate elements of nature which they so loved, as well as for their unit to look bright and modern.

The designers brought the outdoors into the home by injecting hues of green throughout the dwelling, particularly in the kitchen and master bedroom where minty shades from Nippon Paint were selected for the majority of built-in fixtures. Pale, white oak laminates on the walls further accentuate the nature theme, mounted alongside tinted and clear mirror panels to evoke a spacious, airy and modern living space. To complement the marble-effect flooring, the media wall in the living room was customised with Lamitak’s Bianco Marble Uassiq laminates, adding a visually arresting and organic element to the abode.
