PROJECT SHOWCASE: A PLACE SHE NOW CALLS HOMEBy Nicole Kow
Nestled within close proximity to East Coast Beach, our latest project showcase comes in the form of a private apartment unit of approximately 1,672 sq. ft. A 2 month long project, the 3 bedroom apartment’s original state showed potential but like with many newly acquired units was seeking a revamp. This issue we take a look at the transformative process from before to after.
Months back when we first stepped foot into the apartment, its former state reflected much of its age. Its colour palette consisted of shades of cream and mocha throughout. The floor tile profile was rectangular, with pieces laid out in gradient variations.
The unit encompassed an open balcony that while is a nice feature, space was too compact to be fully utilised except as a viewpoint of the overlooking road.
The kitchen, semi-closed and decked in half wall tiles and mismatched green paint finish was yearning for a makeover.
Similarly the bedrooms and bathrooms dark and uninviting needed a new lease on “life”.
Its former state though once a home for another lacked the homeliness suited for its new occupant. She turned to us to help her create the home she yearned to have in this unit.
Re-entering the home after the completed works, a stark difference in its transformation was apparent. The dull cream and mocha colour palette was replaced with pastel purple and white walls while the floors were laid over with light faux wood vinyl slats. The combination alone enhanced the spaciousness and brightness of the space. A neutral palette that showcased the rich dark woods and striking purple furniture displayed throughout the main hall.
A highlight feature of the home is the converted balcony space. No longer kept as an outdoor feature, the balcony was fused to expand with the indoor. Lining with wall with windows maximised the light and wind flow into the home; a serene spot to enjoy breakfast or tea no matter whether it’s rain or shine.
Venturing past the living room, a nook reveals the dining room and kitchen. Replacing all windows and doors helped transition the dated apartment into present-day style.
The kitchen while consisted of an entrance previously could still be improved thus was expanded further for a more open-concept feel within the confinements of the dining space. Cabinetry from our in-house department designed and replaced the existing set to fuse the look together with the rest of the home.
Journeying through a passageway pass the dining reveals the bedrooms. The master bedroom in particular is customized to the homeowner’s favourite colour, purple. A simple feature wall slicked in purple paint creates the focus of the room in a calming pastel shade. While the master bathroom is adorned with the contemporary trend of greys and whites for a neat minimalist appeal.
Fast forward pass handover, the homeowner of this newly revamped unit can now truly call this her sanctuary. Hosting a housewarming with her close friends and family, it was a true blessing to see how fondly she expressed her gratitude to the Nic & Wes team for the work done to the place she now calls home.
