Luxury homes: a spacious apartment where colonial charm meets Asian heritage

This Loyang Valley family home – which features a stylish blend of colonial and Asian influences – was designed by the homeowners themselves.

Designing a home with both colonial and Asian influences requires an eye for detail and balance, something that homeowners Alvin and Gina proved to have when they took on the task of designing their Loyang Valley condo apartment themselves.

They wanted a relaxing home that exuded the charm of a colonial mansion, with some Asian antiques in the mix. Since the home overlooks verdant greenery just outside, some tropical elements would tie it all together seamlessly. “We wanted a design style that would transport you to a place of serenity, away from Singapore’s hustle and bustle,” says Alvin.

    Alvin and Gina chose a dark wood floor – reminiscent of Raffles Hotel – to connect all the spaces together. They wanted a large, spacious area that would be able to host gatherings, so they reoriented the location of the TV and sofa to create more space. The TV console itself is also kept minimal – they did away with the usual boxy setup and large speakers, choosing instead to have a smart Wi-Fi connected TV that can mirror their phone display for streaming services.
