The composition logic of the first floor layout comes from the Oriental garden. The choice of table lamp, Mosaic skirting line and rattan cabinet door are inspired by Nanyang style. The Wall panels, Roman Columns and ceiling lines come from French style. Furthermore, the Chinese traditional plum blossom window shape is integrated into the shape of ceiling lines.

We use glass tiles to bring in natural light in the staircase. There are several beams locations are exposed and optimized for arch or sloped roof shapes. We choose the flora wallpaper in order to bring in tropical feeling into the master bedroom.

In the kids’ room, the main color of the space is selected according to the color preferences of the two children, and the corresponding wallpaper is selected according to their animal signs.
