This Modern-Eclectic Townhouse is A Stunning Stand Out From its Neighbors!
June 5, 2018
It’s a challenge to make townhouses standout. These spaces are intended to be the same replica of each other from the outside. The challenge for interior designer Anla Li-Tan was was to make this townhouse special on the inside. “We had two to three renovations prior to Anla, shares the father of the townhouse. “We had it renovated because there’s a termite infestation in the village,” he adds. While moving out might have been an easier decision, the space had sentimental value to the family. “My wife grew up here, and her sisters live close by, so we’re all in one village.”
The huge task then for the interior designer was not only to make the house look beautiful, but also durable against any future attacks from the tiny wood eaters. “Everything was repaired,” adds Anla, who had everything reproofed during the construction. Aside from making the home sturdier and resilient to pest attacks, Anla also made it larger by converting the garage into a new living area.
The owners let Anla take over the design of the entire townhouse. Anla went the extra mile by giving the entire home her signature design style that is known to be classy and elegant, but still very modern and simple. Her use of neutrals and subdued colors in the public areas of the house was a contrast to the rooms in the family members’ rooms.
With the clients having a previous business in baking and a current business in farming, the kitchen and dining areas were given a lot of attention. Storage was allocated for all the clients kitchen appliances. In the dining area, quirky lamps take center stage while specialized wood laminates add warmth to the space. The right is a closet space of kitchen items of the family. “We like to bake during the weekend,” shares the father of the house who is very happy with the large storage and space provided in the kitchen.
To protect the home from termites, the only wooden material in the home is the wooden planks on top of the concrete stairs. “The family is very religious,” adds the designer. She alloted an altar wall to display their relics. The skylight is filtered by a marble framing, it separates the altar area and the dining area and provides natural light in the area.
The girls’ bedroom is fit for a princess with this soft and dainty pastel colors. It has enough space for each daughter to study and play together!
Undoubtedly, the star of this townhouse is the Lego room of the two boys of the house. Anla shares that she was initially scare of putting color to the ceiling but it turned out wonderfully! The two boys couldn’t be happier with their room that has the most eclectic touch through the statement ceiling.
The master bedroom has a relaxing ambiance with a play of brown tones. The space comes with its own bathroom and walk-in closet.
The cool wooden details and just the right amount of colors, the townhouse is now a townhome. “I’m very happy with the outcome, it all turned out well,” smiles the owner.
