In the open-plan kitchen/living room, we helped create a cozier yet multi-functional room with well delineated spaces. The existing kitchen units were retained and extra storage was built-in under the stairs to house the fridge/freezer. A peninsular breakfast bar with extra units was added for eating and as a workspace. The work top was upgraded to dark Wenge wood in keeping with the client’s South East Asian furniture, and colour was introduced through soft furnishings and grass wallpaper. To create ambience we added table lamps and industrial style pendants. A wardrobe was built in the hall, in a similar Asian style, to match Indonesian artwork. Upstairs, the small boxroom was redecorated with new light fittings and Balanese screen to add atmosphere, and fitted storage was reworked providing more storage, thus creating a new bedroom.
