AT A GL ANCE
Space 5-ROOM HDB EXECUTIVE APARTMENT Reno period THREE MONTHS
The decor of the newly expanded living area pays tribute to Nadiah’s parents. Her late artist dad’s calligraphic works and paintings hold pride of place, while her mother chose the maroon-hued Persian carpet which has been well-received by friends and family who visit.
Amidst international borders shutting down due to the pandemic, Nadiah and her husband Bilal Jeanpierre were planning for the renovation of their new 1,600sq ft family home in the West. The actress and TV host soon realised that any holiday plans would be shelved, and as avid travellers, the couple knew they needed an outlet for their family vacations. “That’s when I told my husband that we need to style our home after a villa resort, so we can always relive our fond travel memories,” Nadiah tells us.
With her husband completely on board with her “holiday home” aspirations, Nadiah then engaged designer Wan Ismail from Fatema Design Studio to put together a spacious living space comprising Moroccan and bohemian influences. He expertly tweaked the original layout by hacking away walls to expand the living room, master bedroom and created an open-plan kitchen. All these well-executed reconfigurations have been integral in introducing more daylight and the visual expanse of space.
Using the light-filled setting as her canvas, Nadiah was able to explore her individualistic decor sense. She mixed and matched ethnic patterns like ikat and African prints, and even worked in bold details like jungle patterns and colourful handcrafted pieces— all of which reflect her vibrant personality as well as global and cultural influences.
By practising considerable restraint and balance in decorating, nothing looks over-styled or cluttered in this home. Textiles united in tonality along with an earthy palette also help to achieve a consistent look.
Matching modern wall coverings with artisanal pieces, Nadiah artfully arranged this eye-catching wall installation for high contrast against the textured and neutral-coloured wallpaper from Craft Axis.
