Every renovation project is unique and Andrea Rodriguez, the designer for this one takes us through the journey she undertook for this project. “I enjoy working with natural and raw materials that express their intrinsic qualities, so my style is quite organic, clean and well proportioned,” says Andrea. This is exactly what you can see at this 4 bedroom condo in upscale Pebble Bay.

We believe that if one is successful in picking colours according to the space and ties the design requirements with it, the result is absolutely stunning.

Welcoming you with a unique TV console-cum-feature wall

Now it opens up to a TV unit

The moment you step inside this spacious condo, you will notice this lovely feature wall in the living room. Wait till it opens up into a TV console. A common sight in Singapore condos, having a sliding door to hide away the TV unit is no surprise. But how Andrea made this unique is by adding timber trimmings to the white laminate door. Another design element you should focus on, is the false ceiling that the family really wanted in here. Warm light peeping through the ceiling adds a softness to this living room.

Some amazing design highlights

A sliding door to separate the view of the bedrooms from the common areas

The pivoting door that slides to maintain privacy

What do you do when you have young kids at home but still enjoy entertaining friends over a drink? Take a cue from what Andrea has done at this Pebble Bay condo. At the end of the hallway, which leads to the bedrooms, she added a pivoting hinged door that closes and separates the bedrooms from the common areas. This helps the couple to host friends and family without disturbing their kids. Such a smart idea!

A custom-made piece designed especially for the family

Andrea made sure this piece of furniture stands out

Something that this family insisted on was a shoe rack. But Andrea went the extra mile and customised one for them. She designed this piece with laminate frame and rattan netting that facilitates ventilation. Now shoes go out of sight and still breathe inside this piece.

Displaying the family’s love for rustic furniture in the dining room

Warm wooden furniture dominates the dining room

The family had a lot of furniture that they wanted to retain and Andrea made sure she designed the space around it. As a result, Andrea decided to keep the focus on the furniture by keeping the doors all in white with wooden framing and a pendant light to make it more intimate.

A seamless look for this contemporary kitchen

The kitchen is one space that was completely broken down and renovated from scratch. Some features that stand out here are the matte laminate cabinet doors with the base cabinets flaunting a wooden look. Ceramic tiles laid out in herringbone pattern on the backsplash add a subtly stylish touch in this kitchen. Quartz countertop and stainless steel dish rack and faucet help make this kitchen look seamless. The door is also spray painted to match the colour on the walls.

Study room with a minimal details

This airy room was made more functional with the study table

There was just a requirement to add a table in this study room since the family wanted to retain the flooring and the windows. Therefore, Andrea added a wall-to-wall study table in laminate. Wall shelves facilitate storage of books and photo frames of fond memories.

Customised kid’s wardrobe with pops of cheerful yellow

This is not an ordinary kid’s wardrobe. Since this home is big on customised furniture, Andrea had to add an interesting element in every piece. This laminate-framed wardrobe comes with yellow borders and concealed LED strip lights. She also added a custom-made see-through glass top drawer so that the kids can select what they want to pick without having to open it. She has also added lofts to increase storage space.

Hints of blue brightens up the kid’s bathroom

The highlights of this kid’s bathroom are the pop of colour and porcelain tiles on the floor. A quartz countertop decks up the vanity unit. Although this bathroom is pretty compact, we love how design has not taken a backseat. The teal blue accent really ups the style quotient of this space.

Marble magic show in this master bathroom

Describing the unique features of the master bathroom in this Pebble Bay condo, Andrea tells us that this space was designed with marble as the hero. She has used marble framing and handcrafted marble mosaic flooring everywhere. There’s a quartz latch above the bathtub and a tempered glass screen that separates it from the dry area. The insert marble decorative tiles above the tub and elevates the look.
