We received another apartment from one of our readers which we would like to share. This home and its interior ideas belongs to Hong Li, a graphic designer from Singapore. Here is the description we received: this crib is “a small, limited space two bedroom duplex apartment of 861sqft. 430sqft upstairs where I have 2 bedrooms and 430sqft downstairs where i have living room, store room and kitchen. In order to have a bigger living room, kitchen cabinet separating the living room and kitchen was demolished to create an open concept kitchen like we see in the photos. A drop leaf dining table is mounted on the side of the oven and induction cooker cabinet. Space under the staircase was converted into study area. A semi circle desk was created for this purpose, including drawers and movable cabinet for printer & fax machine storage.

Lots of black is used for my apartment, hoping to give it a cozy boutique hotel feel. A living room wall is decorated with picture frames (gold, black and white color). They are hanged by nails and the layout of picture frames is changeable. I love chandeliers, and they were extensively used in this small house, even wall stickers for bedroom’s doors are chandeliers too. Ceiling roses ~ which was normally used in palaces, is also being adopted in my house design. I sew all the drapes and curtains in the house.” Even though these are not professional photos, we appreciate our reader’s ability to capture significant details. Check out the state of the crib before Hong Li redecorated in the last four photos. Freshome readers, what do you have to say about this duplex?
