Fine-featured from Home & Apartment Trends volume 2201

Interior design can bring an office, home, or inner-city apartment to life. Starting with an empty space, professional insights into material choices, furniture layouts and colour palettes all create an environment that is a pleasure to be in.
Sometimes this even includes custom-built furniture, drapery and light fittings, all designed specifically to complement the space. The more comprehensive the design focus, the greater the final impact.
LivinPassion is a fast-growing Singapore interior design company specialising in residential apartments for developers, and designing for private clients. It also undertakes commercial and hospitality projects, including hotels, says director Grace Wong.
"Our range of services include residential turn-key projects, interior design consultancy, concept development, space planning, contract administration, sourcing and procurement, project management, retail and custom-built furniture, furnishing and styling."
LivinPassion's attention to detail, and in fact every aspect of its interior design work, can be seen in the penthouse interior shown on these pages.
Situated in an urban location, the theme is striking and contemporary modern.
"When stepping from the lift lobby into the penthouse, three alabaster light boxes provide a dramatic welcome," says Grace Wong. "They serve the dual purpose of partitioning the entrance from the living and dining areas, without blocking out the exterior views, and allow light to glow through them at night."
Entering the main living areas, the colour scheme co-ordinates dark brown custom-built wood furniture with a grey velvet L-shaped sofa and dining chairs. The walls are white.
Dark-brown velvet curtains in the living areas are teamed with dark-toned roller blinds to give additional shade.
The central living space features a square coffee table with drawers, finished with a glass top to soften the heaviness of the dark wood. Opposite the sofa, a custom-built cabinet with back-lit frosted glass doors provides ambient lighting.
For the dining area, a sleek, custom-built, six-seater dining table and accompanying dining chairs feature stainless steel inlay. Alongside, a buffet hutch with frosted glass drawers is internally lit, providing additional ambient light.
Beside the dining table, a palm tree sits in a purpose-built planter box, finished in the same material as the feature wall. Its height further accentuates the double volume of the living and dining space.
The penthouse's master bedroom and three other bedrooms, one converted to a study, all include pieces chosen to blend with the tones of the central spaces.
The master bedroom continues the colour palette of the open living spaces.
LivinPassion also decorated a rooftop terrace with dark-stained teak armchairs and a water feature made from black granite stones.
"From the custom-built furniture to the ambient lighting and thoughtful layouts, LivinPassion turned a large, cool space into a welcoming, contemporary modern interior," says Grace Wong.
