They say home is where the heart is but here, the home is all heart. When guests step through the front door, they are greeted by a country-style brick wall divider in the foyer.
When Benny and Janet Leow bought this HDB Executive Apartment in Sengkang late last year, they wanted to make it the home of their dreams. The abode not only has to look good, but must also function well around their family’s different habits and needs. To give the apartment a relaxing yet stylish vibe, the interior designer Maxx used neutral colours that flow through the entire design in a soothing manner while fabrics, intricate details, different grains of solid wood and textures such as the unfinished brick wall divider in the foyer inject the essential air of cosiness.
There are many clever touches that never fail to amaze as one explores the apartment. The honeycomb wall that stretches from the living to dining area is one such example. In addition to the hexagon compartments, the wall also hides a bomb shelter with a door that had been cleverly fashioned to resemble the shapes. But the highlight of the apartment falls on the exquisite feature wall that divides the living and dining area. It’s made from vertical wooden slats so that one can see through them to the other side, even though it’s in a different section of the house.
It’s evident that Maxx has taken much care to create the dream home for the Leow family. They say home is where the heart is but here, the home is all heart.
