Embracing The Charms Of Tradition — A Regal And Timeless Family Dwelling

From contemporary touches to a myriad of natural materials, the Modern Colonial interior design of this refined dwelling strikes the perfect balance between traditional charms and sophistication. Complemented by warm wood tones and dark accents, this family abode is a true depiction of a modernised Colonial home interior. Embracing the essence of old-meets-new, the presence of a coffered ceiling highlights a key feature in the living area — elevating the space in an understated elegance. The lustrous gold pendant lighting in the dining area anchors the open-concept space, creating a graceful contrast with various stone and wood finishings. Tropical potted greenery and timber open shelves introduce a touch of warmth, blending harmoniously with contemporary elements like clean-lined furnishings. Board-and-batten detailing in the common bedroom adds visual interest to the minimalist character of the space. Leading into the master bedroom, a distinctive geometric feature wall steals the spotlight as the centrepiece, juxtaposed against the white louvre windows and walls — resembling an idyllic setting. 

Interior Designer’s Thoughts

The homeowner requested for Modern Colonial interior design that consists of classic textile features and furnishings. For the main design theme, a varied selection of natural tones with shades of blue was chosen to create versatility and a sophisticated look. They were particularly fond of having coffered ceiling design in the living area similar to Victoria Concert Hall, highlighting a regal yet timeless appeal. The kitchen walls were hacked to open up the space and provide better air flow from the kitchen to the communal space. The interior designer suggested converting the original common bathroom into a laundry room and sectioning the area with patterned black and white tiles, which adds Colonial elements. As the homeowners often host gatherings, the interior designer reconfigured the dining layout to create a seamless flow with the open concept kitchen. Rich wood tones and wooden beams balance out the cool and warm tones in the space, enhancing versatility. To bring in Colonial design elements in the master bedroom, the interior designer suggested a geometric tiled feature wall and louvre windows to create a striking contrast and break the monotony of the interior space.
